Grandma Camp South

She's gone................waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
With 5 children and 10 grandchildren living in 5 different states, my mom has taken her grandma skills on tour this summer. Brooks and I got her first for 10 whole days. I had all these grand ideas of running errands and going on dates every night with Brandon while she was here but in reality, we did just about nothing and it was WONDERFUL!!

Nothing tops her homemade enchilada casserole, HGTV marathons, marriage dispute interventions, funny helicopter man voice, Cricket navigating skills, constant temperature monitoring, willingness to eat a cookie- or 4- with pregoville USA, infectious Ikea excitement and comforting being in our home. We love you Grandma/Mom!! See ya in again in a few weeks when the real fun begins.

Out on the patio for the daily "pop pop" routine

Brooks' new face. This is how he smiles at strangers.

A kiss from the outside and a kick from the inside.

Ah moms are the B-E-S-T. Brooks looks like he has grown quite a bit since I last saw him. Tell him to cut it out.

Ohhhh, I love seeing fun grandma pictures! Aren't moms the best (at least my own mom!). They always have the best games to entertain the kids, keep the best company, and spoil their preggo daughters in the best way!
