Papa's and Grandma's Visits

These boys were very excited to get a special birthday visit from both their Papa and their Grandma, Aunt Naomi, and cousin Grady in March.  Papa could only come and stay a few days during the week because of his duties at his church so the boys could only spend time with him after school.  The weather during the week was cooler than normal and did not cooperate with many of our plans.  After Papa left on Friday, Grandma arrived Friday evening to stay until Sunday.  The weather was just perfect for her visit, and we enjoyed showing her around downtown Savannah and our local beach.   We hope Papa can visit again this summer so he can experience more of what the area has to offer.

Brody and Papa always bond over electronics.  Fellow tech addicts.

It was a cold day on the beach.  Papa refused to dress warmer because he insisted he could handle it.  Haha!

These love the beach even on a cold windy day.  Some crazy wind surfers were entertaining to watch.

Brody wanted his picture taken with all the monuments.  This one was a sweet memorial to Scottish forbears.  I guess there is a large Scottish ancestry in the area.

Grayson and Mattox wore the sweet Grandma rocks shirts I bought them for the occasion.

Mattox is always taking care of his baby and wanted to be sure Grandma was holding him correctly.

The boys loved watching the Georgia Queen on the move, and the boys were excited to hit the beach.

Mattox the pirate loves the beach. Mommy bought all of the big boys some Tybee Island t-shirts that were on sale at a local shop.

Brody's shirt was big enough to be a dress so he went without pants.

The water was surprisingly warm.
