Today we took some time to visit my grandmother Vesta, my dads mother.
It's been awhile since my older boys have seen her and I know Parker and Mason don't remember her. It was very fun visiting. Mason was scared of the dog but as soon as grandma put Buster outside, Mason wander all over the house and loved all the stuffed animals she had.
Grandma goes into heart surgery Monday morning to replace a valve. She seems a little nervous but she is still her upbeat self. We'll be praying for you Grandma!
Here is Aunt Krysten and Parker who absolutely adores her.
And of course my two show offs. They are playing the 'I'm stronger than you' game.
UPDATE: My mom called on Monday afternoon to let me know Grandma Vesta came through the surgery great. The procedure can take up to 6 hours, but Grandma was out in about 3 1/2. I hope my Dad is breathing by now, I'm sure he carried enough worry around for everyone. Relax dad and just love your mom.

We were all excited about going swimming, especially on a very hot day. I grew up swimming here and was a little hesitant about going because it didn't seem like it would be fun for my little guys. BUT Teresa, my sister, said she had been a couple of times and they had completly redone it. I was very impressed!!!
The kiddie area was very fun for Mason and Parker, their cousins Jaxson, Kennedy, and Raegan. My sister Teresa is holding Raegan, Kennedy is on her leg (orange swimsuit).
Here are Oscar and Zachary messing around in the lazy river. That was a lot of fun. Even Mason and Parker got their fair share.
Grandma Bullock, Parker and Jaxson:
I came across a good friend who moved away about 3 years ago, Shauna Boren. She used to live two houses down from me. I gave her a big hug and had a great chat and caught up. She has two grandsons and another one on the way, she seems very proud. She also acts very strong since I found out she is suffering from breast cancer and is scheduled for surgery in a couple of weeks. She has been going through cemo and has lost her hair and is scheduled for radiation afterwards. She seems upbeat and is looking at all the positives. Way to go Shauna, we'll be praying for you. Oscar and Zachary got to hang out with their friend Jessie (Shauna's son) and had lots of fun.
After a long day it was time to pack up, none of them really wanted to go. They were all so worn out by the time we got to the car though. *smile*
We have already decided to come back again maybe next time with Daddy!
