Dad-Dad, Dee, and Dedication

My dad, "Dad-Dad" as he is affectionately known to Brice, came to visit last week. He had a conference in Nashville, so he decided to make a week of it. Brice had tons of fun - it's nice to have someone other than mommy around all day! Dee came later in the week to spend the weekend with us and to see Rider dedicated at church on Sunday. It was a great time, and as always, so good to see family! We were sad to see you go...Brice cried for a good 5 min after they pulled out of the driveway, and even tried to run down the street after them. Thankfully we'll get to see them in 3 weeks when we go to the beach! Here are some pictures of the week...
Our closet under our stairs was a DISASTER! I wish I had taken a before picture, but here's the dad helped put shelves up, and it is much, much better! Sometimes I go in there just to see how good it looks. :)
Dad-Dad loves to build after we got the shelves put up, he used the leftover wood to make Brice his own seat outside.

We took the boys to the pool twice - Brice is a huge fan of the "la-la-la-la" (water).

We went and checked out the Belle Meade are Dee and Brice in their gardens.

Rider's Dedication at church. It was a special day! We are so thankful for a church and a church family for Rider to grow up with. Even though our family isn't close, our boys will have people who will be like family, and that is a great feeling.

Thanks for visiting Dad-Dad! We had a great time! You still take care of your little girl pretty well! :) Oh, and Happy Birthday!!! We love you!!
