This last Saturday we spent some time with the Hanus Family. I spent many summers nannying them and now Emilie is graduating High School. Anyway they opened their swimming pool and it was a little cold on Saturday but that did not stop Kodi from wanting to swim.

So Aaron and Kodi went swimming the pool was pretty warm and Kodi loved it. Kayla found a life jacket for Kodi to wear and that was it. Kodi was so proud that he could swim without holding on to Aaron.

I watched Kodi jump off the side of the pool go under water and pop back up wipe his face off and want to do it again. Kodi also listened really good as to no running around the pool and having to walk. I can't wait for this summer and to take him back to their house to swim.

Time for hair cut

While Grandma and Papa were visiting us Dakota got a wood tic in his head. Which meant it was time to cut his hair. Easy enough to say but to get Dakota into Kids Hair and actually have his hair cut is a totally different thing. He is getting better and better each time he gets his hair cut, if they don't use the clippers on his head he is ok, once they bring them out and turn them on he starts to cry and wants Daddy to take him away.

Needless to say we got his summer hair cut and he will keep his Mohawk until fall, I am not so sure about the green hair color each time, but we wanted to make that day fun for him, since Grandma and Papa were leaving to go back home after a three weeks of being with us.

I asked Dakota is he wanted them to leave and he told me "no" he wanted them to stay. We are looking forward to their next trip here. We had a great time with Grandma and Papa here at our house.

They watched Kingston grow and they were able to bond with him. Kingston and Grandma would be together for most of the day. Now Kingston is not sure what to do without his Grandma. Kodi loved playing trains and dinosaures with Papa, I don't do the trains t he same way Papa did.

While Dave and Karen were here they were able to watch Minnesota become green and everything bloom. We took long walks along the trail to which Dakota got a tic from, but we still enjoy walking and looking for turtles in the lake. Dakota is still waiting to run his big wheel while we walk. We are trying to get him to use the pedels but he doesn't want to oh well he will learn soon enough.

Grandma and Papa Hamblin

We have had a wonderful week and 2 days with Aaron's Parents, I love having them here. Dakota loves beening able to wake up each morning and greet them. Kingston has found a new partner in life his grandma. He loves to take naps on her chest and let her hold him. I don't know what I am going to do once they leave. But since you are reading this and I did not get a chance to post this before they left, Kingston has had to learn how to deal without his grandma.
