Grandma & Grandpa Play Time

Scott's parents just left this morning from their short visit. We had our nightly ritual (at least when they're here) of playing Ripple (w/ Skip-Bo cards). I don't know what it is, but as soon as I sit down to play cards with Dennis, I get very competitive (I had to stop being so competitive after marrying Scott b/c he wouldn't play games with me otherwise).

Dennis & Gail took Will to the park while I ran some errands, & I met up with them later.

 Dennis & I are both pretty camera happy (although I let him take over pretty much all of the picture taking).

It was fun experimenting with the camera & sneaking pictures of Will while trying to sit inside a tunnel - definitely not the most comfortable place. 

Will loved playing in the sand. By the end of our park trip, he was covered in sand - it was so thick in his hair that it looked like he had cradle cap (gross, huh?).

Will especially liked playing in the spraying mist. He kept laughing & spinning in circles with the other kids there every time I turned it on. He also tried catching the water in his mouth, & his hair & face were drenched by the time we left.

After we got home, I gave Will a bath in the kitchen sink. He was screaming & squirming all over the place, & I needed Gail to help me hold him in place, so I could finish getting the caked sand out of his hair. As it turned out, he was throwing a tantrum b/c he wanted a piece of bread - all that playing had made him hungry . . . really hungry, apparently!
After he calmed down from his tantrum, Will was his normal happy self & showed off his cars & belly button to grandma & grandpa.

We love when grandma & grandpa come to visit & can't wait for them to come again!

  3. Dennis is responsible for basically all the great photos in the post - I think he's partially the reason I've gotten more into photography (or at least trying to learn).
