a day with the grandparents....



it actually took six of us to get this bird feeder up. 
darn tree roots. they kept getting in the way.




my hubby grabbed his mom for a mother's day kiss...which caught her off guard 
and cracked us all up.




it took six of us {again} to hang a mirror at my parents house. good thing we found a stud.
well not in the wall, but the guy in the black shirt.....snort.


we're extremely blessed to have both of our parents just an hour away
and so lucky that they live just a few blocks from each other. it makes mother's day and all the other family celebrations so simple. 
when things are simple, fun comes easily.

  10. I agree, so lucky. This is a super post. My daughter who lives in Idaho is moving to Arkansas and will now be only six hours away from me when I'm in Texas. That is a relief. Seeing th grandkids only once a year is so hard on me. xo Jenny

  12. Beautiful shots, but I don't see you in any of them. Yes, I know, you are the photographer, but still...... It looks like you all had a wonderful time with your parents and your husband's parents. Lucky in deed to have them living only blocks apart. It really does make things simple and less stressful.
