40 weeks (isn) and family visiting!

This was a busy busy two weeks for us!  We had a set of Grandparents, Mom, Aunt, Uncle, cousins, and a sister visiting with us.

My sister, Hattie-Grace's favorite Auntie, was here for a few days before the rest of the family came to town.
Bethany lives in NYC, so naturally she teaches us all about the upcoming fashions and how the best sunglasses for our face structure.
 Twinsies at church
 We hit the pool.
 Hattie-Grace loves her Auntie B.

Next, we had my Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle and their two children, and my Mom here with us.  We enjoyed many sunny days by the water.  This is Kings Bay, at one of our favorite local seafood restaurants.  

 The kids helped me make a Pinterest inspired sensory toy for HG.  Just hair gel, sparkles and links in a ziplock bag sealed with duct tape.  She has enjoyed squeezing it lots, yet we have to keep a close eye on her so she doesn't eat it :)
 Fun times with Mimi.
 Hanging out at Hunter Springs.  They canoed with the manatees and we met them for a picnic lunch and swimming!

We had a few nice pool days, but this was the first time HG has really spent time in the pool.  At first she was a little hesitant, yet once she warmed up to the idea of it she was splashing and kicking.  I think she is going to really love the pool soon.  

Hattie-Grace loved all our family visitors.  She especially took to my Grandfather, always smiling from ear to ear when he would talk to her.  She loved playing peek a boo with him and enjoyed his soothing voice.  
We were so blessed to have family with us, and loved having the extra hands around the house.  What a fun visit!
