          There is a LOT to write about in this post.    Seems there is always a Kodak moment
          with Ayden around.

                      We start out with Ayden, Sheila & Darren flying down January 11 & staying
                  a few days.

                                                                       They have arrived
Ayden at the airport

First day we went to the beach we dressed like this

Very next day you needed a jacket
Don't  be shocked**Grandma is in the picture

                                                                  Footprints in the sand
                                                                     Ayden 19 months
1-2-3-  Cheese

                                                     Ayden is too big for the kitchen sink
                                                    this year, so had to find another way
                                                    to take a bath.  This bathtub fits
                                                     right inside the shower, and he loves it.

                                                            Aydens first ice cream cone
                                                                     holding it himself

                                                                  He did really well

Even though it was chilly
we wanted to swing
                                                                        And Slide

                                                                 I know I can do it

                                                                   Whee    no hands


                                          They went back home and then 3 weeks  
                                      later Sheila & Ayden came to stay for 9 days
                                            This is at the airport when they were going to
                                         fly back down here.   When Sheila sent these pictures
                                       it brought tears to my eyes.   This little boy looked so
                                                    grown up pulling his own suitcase !!!
                                             And that bomber jacket !! He is ready to roll...
                                                 Hi Grandma & Grandpa,  we just landed

At first glance what do you think ?
Yeah I know it looks like snow but it's not.
It wasn't a very warm week when they were here,
so he wore his winter hat on the beach.  If it would
not have been so windy, it wouldn't have felt so cold,
so no water today.  He really loves to run and play in the water.
Hopefully spring break.
Grandpa & Ayden having their morning Joe together
One afternoon during nap we heard Ayden say
Not hearing anything more we assumed he went
back to sleep.   When Sheila went in to get him up
she found a whole new package of wipes pulled
out and all over the crib !!!
We did have 1 nice day that we went to the beach and
spent some time.  This is not a posed picture.  It happened
very quickly.  Kent got up from the chair to do something and
Ayden was close to the chair, as soon as Kent got up Ayden
literally plops in the chair for a short 30 seconds and I snapped
the pose.  Luckily I had my camera in my hand.
Taking a break

NOTE:  The bike is NOT moving
Sheila is just holding him on the bike.
Guess someone was concerned about Aydens feet
getting caught.  Didn't happen....Bike didn't move.
I got to go swimming in the pool....It was so fun
We went out to the park to try to see Alligators
Was hoping Grandpa wouldn't drop me
Look real close...this is the only PART of the alligator
we saw..he never moved for us.
Hi,   It's me Ayden with my Minion glasses
                   I got to do so many things at Grandma & Grandpas, I really had fun at
                   their new place this year.   Now I can't wait to go see them Spring Break.
                   I played so hard from morning to night,  I hardly slowed down.  Everybody
                   says I am just like my daddy.  VERY HIGH ENERGY.   I'm tired now I'll
                                                         see you another time.  Nite  Nite

                                                        Hope you enjoyed the pictures

                                                                     Keep Smiling

                                                                    Kent & Martha
