Grandma Shields and Grandpa Ostler Come and Stay

About a week after my mom left, we were blessed to have Michael's mom come down.  She is incredibly active and always made my mornings nice and peaceful by taking Laila for bike rides, hikes, and to the park.  She loves being a grandma and my kids are blessed to have her.

^I love how he's holding onto her

^Grandma Shields help us get passports for the two kids.  So excited to have these "happy" faces in their passports...

^She finished this beautiful blanket for Harrison

^While Grandma was here, we went to the children's museum.  So much fun!

Laila with her Grandma.  Playing with shapes and climbing the giant treehouse

^While Grandma was here, Laila started swimming lessons

We are so grateful we had her to ourselves for a week.  It was nice to go on some adventures, have someone play with Laila and even babysit so we could go on a date baby free!

A few days after Grandma Shields left, Grandpa Ostler came to town to meet our sweet Harrison.  He found a great airfare and we are grateful he did!  I cannot believe Harrison is my parents' third grandchild!  
^He squeezed in a few Spring Training games.

^Spoiled Laila by getting her some princess jammies and clothes

Grandpa knows how to push high!

We enjoyed the perfect outside weather

My Ostler grandparents came up from Yuma to meet Harrison.  Four generations! 

We loved walks in the wagon...

...And eating peanuts

Grandpa got Laila a stuffed monkey that she loves!

I loved being outside watching baseball with my TWO kids and my dad.  It was fun having him here! 


  1. Ah! I love kids with their grandparents. They are the best!

  2. your kids are lucky to have grandparents visiting all the time.

  3. It's so nice to see that it is normal for Grandpa's to spoil their Grandchildren. And, it is so cute to see your Dad as a Grandpa. Thanks for sharing.
