So back in the early part of June, Grandma and Grandpa Bane came to visit from California!! Dalton had been looking SO forward to them coming. It's funny because I told Chris that we can no longer tell Dalton ahead of time when something special is coming up, because he has no sense of time. So he spends an entire month asking over and over when we'll be doing that special thing. Well, I broke my own rule and told him about four days before their arrival. Every day, he got up and the first words out of his mouth were "Are Grandma and Grandpa coming today?!?" And every day I had to break his heart!
But they finally made it! We had so much fun while they were there. This is the first visit where I haven't had to work...in the past I've either taken vacation and worried about what was piling up while I was gone, or I would work half days to get it done, but had to miss part of their visit. It was really nice this time around to not have to worry about that! Even better, since my "job" now is taking care of the boys, it was even better because they helped out!!
This picture of Jackson was taken at their hotel room one day after we went swimming. Isn't he cute?
Jackson had his very first experience swimming while they were here. I thought, hey perfect! The pool is inside and heated, and I don't have to worry about sun burn... but he didn't care for it too much. :)
Grandpa enjoyed getting on the floor and rolling around with J.
And Grandma sure was more relaxed! I can remember when they came for the first visit after Dalton's birth (I think he was a week old). Jil was so worried that she would drop Dalton, or hurt him somehow. With Jackson though, since she'd had recent baby exposure, she was much better!!
We did a ton of fun stuff while they were here...Turpentine Creek, Pea Ridge Military Park...I'll post more in the coming days, there's just way too many pictures for one posting!!
