so much to be thankful for

When surrounded by a couple of great men and a sweet little boy who wants nothing more than to follow in their footsteps, my heart smiles and is complete. And for that, I'm thankful. Thankful for my dad. His patience. His love. His kind heart. His easy going spirit. Thankful for my husband. His protective spirit. His love for God. His integrity. His honesty. His courage. But most of all, his love for our son. My heart is so happy when I watch them interact. I can see it in Kaden's eyes, how much he wants to be like his daddy.

My parents and sister were in town last weekend. And we had so much fun. We started off the day on a silly note with the guys wearing these crazy glasses, per Kaden's request.

After a fulfilling breakfast, we headed to the beach. Yes. A beach in north Texas. Our homeowner's association has a beach club and lagoon. This was our first visit but definitely not the last. There was sand. Water. You know, everything a little boy needs to have fun.

I guess everything any age boy needs to have fun...

And a splash park, which he thoroughly enjoyed!

It's always so nice to have the grandparents along. They kind of take over parenting, while Kass and I take a minute to relax. While Nana and Papa chased our little guy all over the splash park and beach club, we got a chance to catch some rays. I think my sister said it best with this, "not sure who's going to need a nap more. Them or Kaden." So very true 'cause I'm pretty sure he wore them out! Though, I doubt they would have it any other way.

  1. WOW!!! That is a fantastic recreational area to have so close by - I think if we had something like that close to Spring it would be very hard not to go every day!! Enjoy it!!!

    And Kaden is growing so fast - I LOVE those golden locks of his!
