Grandma Carole and Grandpa Jerry's visit

Grandma Carole and Grandpa Jerry came to visit us while we are here in Las Vegas. Of course, the first place that we took them was down to the strip for some day time sight seeing.

Grandma Carole and I took the boys to the playground and splash park. Gehrig wasted no time getting drenched, but Colin was a little more cautious!

Grandpa Jerry built a fire in the fire pit so that he and Gehrig could make s'mores! YUM!

On one of the day, during their visit, we headed out to Nellis AFB to see Uncle Goose fly his F-16. Greg was here at Nellis for a few weeks for Red Flag.
We waved at Greg and he saw us from his cockpit and waved back!
Then we walked through and looked at all the static displays. Here are Grandma, Grandpa, Gehrig, and Colin in front of the F111 which grandpa flew when he was in the air force.
Then we spent some time on the playground!

We took a day trip to the Hoover Dam. It was 118 degrees there! HOT! We saw the construction of the new bipass which looked amazing. It was too hot to spend the time to take the tour, but we did walk across the dam and took a lot of pictures along the way.

Gehrig loved it when Grandpa Jerry poured water on his head to cool him down.After trekking acorss the dam, we headed to Boulder City Beach at Lake Mead. It wasn't an amazing beach, but the boys had fun and that water felt refreshing. Gehrig had a blast swimming with his kickboard and Colin loved being bounced up and down and in and out of the water! Thanks for visiting Grandma Carole and Grandpa Jerry! We had so much fun with you and can't wait to see you again! We love you!
