These are pictures from a typical family dinner night over at Mimi and Papaw's house. For a while, many of us were able to meet weekly on Tuesday nights for dinner. It wasn't always easy to do, but it was really something we enjoyed doing and it was nice to see each other during the week. Unfortunately, our schedules have all changed a bit, so Family Dinner night happens less frequently, but it usually follows the same format. Here is to future Family Dinner nights, whenever they may be!
Jeffrey refused to look at the camera, but first we all played in the den.
Then it was time for Jason to help feed Gumbo (who Jason has declared as his dog, which is fine by me as long as he understands that Gumbo lives at Mimi and Papaw's!). As you can tell from the progression of photos below, this is a very important task that requires much attention.
After we ate dinner it was bath time. Aunt Sarah and Mimi were a big help with Jeffrey's bath.
And Papaw helped with Jason's bath upstairs.

Nana participates in her church's Vacation Bible School each year and this year Jason got to go with his cousin's Kassidy and Mckinley. Nana had everything planned out for a week of fun which included Vacation Bible School in the morning, lunch at her house and then an activity planned for the afternoon. Jason and his cousins also had a sleepover at Nana's house one night complete with movies and sleeping bags. Nana did tell us that Jason did get mildly annoyed with his cousins that night, as apparently little girls giggle...a lot... and Jason just couldn't figure out why they kept giggling...at everything. But he got over it quickly. I wonder how the dynamic of the group will change when Jeffrey is old enough for a sleep over!
Jason had so much fun spending so much time with Nana and his cousins, and he learned a lot too. I don't have any pictures from Vacation Bible School (VBS), but these pictures are of Jason in his t-shirt from that week. He loves that shirt and wants to wear it all the time. This is usually accompanied by his singing at the top of his lungs the songs that he learned at VBS.

We spent Saturday of the 4th of July Weekend over at Mimi and Papaw's house, well, after Mimi, Aunt Sarah and I enjoyed a decadent morning at the spa (I think we should do this again next 4th!).
Aunt Sarah and Jeffrey
Aunt Sarah sure is funny!
Uncle Josh let Jason play with his phone.
Jeffrey got to play with Pluto
And Mommy too!
Aren't I cute? And look at the blonde fuzz!
We had a fun get-together at the Porter House this year for the 4th.
We got to hang out with parents-to-be, the Gingras'
The big boys got to play together
And enjoyed playing outside
Jason and Jacob got a quick bath (they will hate us for the pictures when they are teenagers right?)
And then we drove up to Roanoke to catch some Fireworks.
