On Eagle's Wings

On Eagle's Wings
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:29-31

Spring is springin'

Spring won't officially arrive for a couple more days.
But Spring Break arrived LAST week in our area.
And what did it bring with it?
A visit from two of our favorite guys.
YAY!! Brady and Noah came to see Nonnie and Papa.
Grandkids had fun hanging out at the park.

Noah likes to pretend he is an animal.
Here, he is a wolf and Kate is serving up the meat.
(Kate has an ice cream store at the park,
but Noah told her wolves don't eat ice cream,
so she had to run out and get meat for the wolf man.)
Brady and I went for bike rides together.
Noah took a break from being wolf man
long enough to have some real ice cream.
Other things we did
Cosmic Jumping
Jack loved the trampoline
Way too fast for my little iPhone camera.
We all had fun coloring pictures and drawing.
Noah has his iPad close at hand
to keep an eye on his movie.
Speaking of iPads and iPhones, our world is so full of gadgets,
while busy in the kitchen, I looked around.
I noticed Grandpa taking a break with the TV.
The boys' Mom, Sara, was busy at work on her laptop (really working.)
Kate was cozied up with her little movie on one of the iPads,
while Brady and Noah were sharing one together.
And, of course, since I had my phone with me,
I decided to snap a pic of each of them.
As soon as I took this pic,
the "big struggle" for control began. Oops!!
So much for those sweet moments of sharing.
(Really, these guys do share a lot!)

Later that night, after baths and getting everybody in their pj's ...


Captain America discovered and made good use of
my old Walkman around his waist.
 The kids love sleeping on a pallet on the floor,
but they especially love the airbed.
Great fun for them
to get in a little more jumping before settling down
to watch an animated version of Heidi.
Sleepover with Nonnie and Papa
(I was glad they enjoyed this little movie so much as
Heidi was one of my favorite books)
 The next morning, we had waffles and
Great memories with four of the BEST kids ever!!
(and I'm not kidding!)
We love all of them and each one is our favorite!

What a fun day and night! It looked like you did so many fun activities that they should have collapsed in bed and slept really good..then I remembered they're just little kiddos with tons of energy..it's me who would have collapsed in bed!

I absolutely LOVE those type of activities and your Grands are the perfect age to enjoy all those moments. They are each one so "pretty" - don't tell the boys I said that, but they are beautiful children. What fun!!
