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

Happy Father's Day visit

A happy Father's day for my Dear Heart

With his babies, Sara and Jason

Sara with her boys

Jason with Kate and Jack

Sara and her sons, Brady and Noah came to visit for a few days for Father's Day.

Papa reading his Father's Day card from the boys.
Poor Papa was down in his back almost the whole time they were here.

While they were here, I took them to play Top Golf twice.
Once with the pouring rain and wind blowing like crazy, 
and the second time with sun blazing down on us.
Texas weather!
Come rain or shine, those boys are up for anything.
They loved the Bingo game I brought out for us to play.

A trip to the zoo with Oma and Nana.

We gave Noah his birthday gifts early.
Stomping on the packing bubbles was
as much fun as the gifts themselves!

It was rainy most of the time they were here, but that didn't dampen the good times. 
They built a blanket fort upstairs and played in it all afternoon,
then slept in it that night.

He can keep up with the older ones pretty good,
but he stopped for a minute and then was out like a light!

Uncle Jason found a big turtle in the back yard.

They played in the hot tub. It's cute that they are getting so big and are all good swimmers, but haven't outgrown their love for the hot tub - even when the water is freezing! Goggle, snorkels, and diving is still fun.

Every morning they were here, we had waffles or pancakes with bacon. On the last morning, Brady lifted his frosty mug of milk and said "Cheers!" to which they all responded by clinking their glasses together to the toast. (I'm not sure where they learned that.)

Noah had his sad face on. We were headed
for Going Bonkers and trying to get a good pic here
just about drove Grandpa bonkers!!!

My Dad and me

Ah, what wonderful photos! The one of you all the the stairs makes me smile when not everyone in the picture did! Isn't that always the way?! You made some great memories with the kids and that is what matters!
