Crazy Grady!

Just a few pics of our mischievous Grady…. He gets into anything and everything he can get away with!

Climbing into the dresser to play his new favorite game, hide and seek….

He most definitely keeps us on our toes, but we are having a blast at this age. He is very good at mimicking us and his vocabulary becomes more expansive by the day it seems. He asks for KK (Katie) and Anna Cross daily and many things remind him of them. His memory amazes us!

Elaine's Surprise 60th

This past Friday, we went to Jenine and Phil's house in Tampa to surprise Elaine with a party for her 60th birthday.  Her brother, Steve and his wife, Joy flew in from Texas.  Her sister, Janice, niece Christina, nephew TJ and Christina's boyfriend, Chris all flew in from New York.  On Friday night, we went to Carrabbas for dinner.  She thought it was just us (Jenine, Phil, Mikey, Grady, and me) and she was SO shocked to see her family.  This was her reaction:

We enjoyed a nice dinner and then we all headed back to Jenine and Phil's to relax and spend time together.  We were pretty tired from the drive and Mikey was very exhausted because he had worked all night the night before. So we went to bed a little early.  The next morning, we got up to get ready for the party.  Jenine had prepared most of the food prior to the party... she made so much yummy food!  She spent the morning finishing up the cooking while I decorated.

The next day (Sunday), we went to Clearwater to have lunch at Bahama Breeze.  We sat outside, listened to the music, and enjoyed a great meal.

Elaine was so surprised and I think it meant a lot to her that her family traveled down to Tampa to celebrate her birthday with her. It shows how much she is loved by her family!

A post can't be complete without a couple pics of crazy Grady...
