Recently Shawn's dad, Dan and his wife, Karen and her children, Alec and Krystal came to Phoenix to visit. Unfortunately, they came on what was the hottest weekend of the year. Fortunately, they stayed at the Arizona Grand, which has a little water park attached to it!
We had a great visit.

Giving Grandpa some love!
Shawn and J running in the grass on the way back to the hotel.
Grandpa helping J climb a tree after he saw Alec do it.
Chillin in the lazy river: J, Shawn and Grandpa.
The Sunday they were here was Shawn's birthday so they got him cheesecake with 28 candles! Shawn said he hasn't blown out candles in forever.
J 'helping' (why, yes, he is awfully close to that giant ball of flames!)
Alec & J reading. J adored Alec - he wanted to do everything he was doing, and Alec, bless him, was more than willing to entertain J. I don't think many 14 yr old boys would be okay with hanging out with a toddler.
Grandma Karen & J reading.
I'm nowhere near caught up on blogging but hopefully my next post will catch us up to 'present' time. I don't know how I get so far behind - it's summer - we don't do much besides hide in the a/c!
