Sweet summertime

 Bathtime with Mommy
 Father/Son campout
 Sharing toys or attempting to anyway
Goldfish with Papa Jay

 Not the best pictures but Carston LOVED swinging outside with Grandma
 Taking summer walks with Daddy is something we loved to do
 Braxton decided to play with Carston in his "jungle"
 Papa Jay and Carston at the Cabin
 Boys will be boys...
 Braxton had a friend over and they had a lot of fun; thanks for the visit Amanda :)
 Father's Day....the one and only picture.  Next year I will be better! Carston loves Daddy time (and so does Mommy)
Doughnuts and pinecones what more could a little boy want?

We are having a fun summer and I am not looking forward to it ending and winter to set in; however, we still have a little time left and plan to enjoy it. :)

Grandma and Grandpa come for a visit

 This is what Carston gets when we don't take his whale tub with us; can you tell who thought of this idea?
 Grandpa and Braxton playing
Hanging out on the couch
 Meeting Grandma

 They all fell asleep watching Cars
 Patrick and I got to celebrate (a little late) with a night away for our 5 year anniversay.  Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for watching Braxton!  We had a blast and Carston was dream baby the whole time.  It was a nice break and celebration.
 Riding the car ride at Strawberry Days
 Can you tell which ride was Braxton's favorite?  I think he went on this one about 4 times.
 More rides....
 Hanging with Grandpa
 At the Steenblik cabin with Grandma

I don't know how this post escaped me.  We had a wonderful time visiting with Grandma and Grandpa.  I especially enjoyed feeling like I didn't have a 2 year old for a week.  Braxton (and all of us) loved having them here to play, help, relax, and have fun making memories together :)
