Labor Day BBQ

Just 3 weeks after having her new baby, Cheryl invited the family over for a BBQ. I was excited to get my hands on the little guy, Parker. So cute! So little!

Carson has quite the backyard play area, so Ben kept busy. A favorite game was riding in the swing and pretending to kick Dada in the face and knock him down. Hmm, I wonder where Ben gets the idea that it is okay to hit and throw things...

Next Ben, Riley, and Carson moved on to the sand box.

But most of Ben's time was spent on the slides. Ben LOVES to climb and is quite skilled for someone so little.

I tried to get one decent picture of us together, but he spotted a plate of cookies and was too distracted to smile for the camera. In the first picture, he has an entire cookie shoved in his mouth.

Let's end this post with a picture of Brenda holding little baby Parker, because who can resist that baby's face!


  1. all those little kids are cuties, but I know what you mean about a babies face.

  2. Oh, Ben's eyes are dreamy! I really like the close-up and also the one where he's looking out the window. Looks like a fun day!

  3. I agree with Jenny. He has beautiful eyes. Ben is going to be a real corker. And most likely a ladies man one of these days. You are going to have to beat the girls off him, Jaysa!
