While we were at the beach, we endeavored to get a picture of Grandpa and Nana with all five grands. The times are few and far between when our whole family is together so a week of togetherness called for photographs. I talk about my grands a lot..after all, my blog is Nanaland, but I got some good photos of my children as well this week.
First I have to share one last beach photo of the Grimm men walking home from the beach one day. Daughter in law, Nancy, captured this one.
Genetics is apparent here...all the men are walking just alike. Heads down and arms out from the sides. Grimm men get teased because of the Arms Out poses. Charles said his wedding photographer told him to stop standing like a gorilla.:) When I took pictures of Marvin and his Minnesota cousins at a reunion several years ago, I noticed that all the Grimm men posed in the same manner.
Charles, my youngest son, with wife, Nancy. They just celebrated five years of marriage.
Daughter, Amelia, Nancy and Charles. It was taken on a phone so pardon the poor quality! Amelia had to go back to Decatur on Tuesday to work so this is the only formal photo I got of her!
Oldest son, Ben, and his wife Katy. They have been married five years as well. They enjoyed an evening out with Charles and Nancy while Nana and Grandpa babysat!
And finally, the stars of the week...the grandchildren!
Nana and her girls, Kendall and Margaret. Getting a good picture of Margaret can be a challenge. She is not into posing like cousin, Kendall.
Grandpa and the boys...Landon, Baylor and Elliott.
Ta Da..the whole crew and everyone but Elliott is looking at the camera!!
So long beach, hello new school year. Kendall and Landon start back to school this week. Kendall starts today and Landon starts tomorrow. It is Landon's first year at Priceville Elementary where he will be in Kindergarten. Time is flying by much too quickly for this Nana.
