Grandpa Hinote comes to visit!!! & more...

My dad came to visit a couple weekends ago & Colton was glad to see his Grandpa Hinote! The Saturday Dad was here we had a prior engagement to attend but when we returned home the swing Dad had bought Colt was hung!!! We were SOOOO excited! We decked Colton out in his shades & he was ready to go!

Grandpa's know how to do everything just right! It was hanging at the perfect length & Colton loved swinging!
Dad explaining to Ryan how he hung that swing with NO help! He's a genius...he threw the rope over the limb! We were thinking we were going to have to borrow a tall ladder to hang the swing! :)
The church crew at Sunday lunch. We went to Firebirds!!! One of my favorites! In attendance: Ash, Nolan & Jake Williams, The 5 Southerns, The 4 Dyers, Rick & Brooke, Allison, Don & Kate Farmer...and us! It was a lot of fun!

Colton went on his first swim recently on his 7 month birthday, June 14th. We met church friends at the YMCA for some sun & cooling off. Baylee Southern is a great helper holding Colt here.
Surrounded by Southerners!!! ;) Ella Southern (Colts Girlfriend), Colt & Baylee
Almost all the crew: Haleigh Dyer, Hannah Dyer, Ella, Colt & Baylee. (Kate Farmer is in the background by that lifejacket) :)  Colton never cried the whole time we were there. But he wasn't overly excited either. I think I had high expectations of him laughing & splashing around...but since I had to hold him the whole time I guess he didn't feel too free.
This past weekend we went to the Farm up in Moulton, AL for a quick get-a-way, just the 3 of us. (well...4 of us counting Heisman) ;) We set Colts paknplay on the pier so he could play while we fished. It worked awesome! Heisman swam as always!

Colt chillin on the pier with mommys water bottle. Check out those rollie thighs!!!

Ryan fishin'...

My husband whipped up an awesome meal! Hamburger patties, fresh fried okra, corn & sweet tea!! It was Awesome! To be out in the country, we needed a country meal.

1 of many reasons we go to the farm...the sunsets...

1 of many reason I GO TO THE FARM :) To fish! How you like that bass Ryan!!! Ha ha!

Random: I LOVE PRUNES!!! :)

We had a wonderful time as always together. I thanked Ryan for WANTING to spend time with me & Colt. It seems so many dads/husbands don't care to spend quality time with their spouse or children. Ryan is definitely not in that category. We both know to keep our marriage strong we have to spend quality time together periodically even away from friends & family. My soap box: If you haven't done that in a while please do can't hurt!
See ya' soon!
