Easter at Cole's house

I just wanted to show y'all some pictures that we took when we were visiting my son and his family at Easter. My mom went too. This was her first time to meet Shanna and her first time to see her new great -grandson, Gabriel.

Isn't he adorable? We all went out to Olive Garden (My favorite place) to eat the first night we were there.

Shanna and Cole get tired of eating there every time I go to see them. We don't have one in my town, so it's always a treat for me. I guess next time, we will have to go somewhere else. LOL

Me, Mom and Gabriel. She fell in love with him.

Mom, Gabriel, Garrett and Me. I like this one...I promise I wasn't choking Garrett. lol Just looks that way.

Mom says he reminds her so much of Cole when he was a baby. She used to call Cole "Rollie Pollie Collie". lol I caught her calling Gabriel that a couple of times.

Mom really liked Shanna too. I love this picture of them.

Mom and the boys. Poor Garrett...Looks like she is choking him too. lol

Cole and his little man.

I was so happy to see him! I held him almost the whole time that I was there. He is such a happy baby.

He is adorable. I was so glad that I got to go visit them for Easter.

Didn't wanna leave.

I got so many kisses while I was there.

Look at that happy face! He laughs and smiles so much.

He was starting to get a little tired here.
Just about out....all that laughing and smiling made him tired.

Garrett decorated his Easter eggs at Cole's house.

I baked Cole his favorite cake for him for Easter.

Garrett when he first woke up. "Where is my Easter basket"???

He loved it.

He's all about sports!

Then Gabriel said, "Where is my basket Nana?"

Of course Nana got him one for his first Easter.

I filled it up with teethers...

little socks to keep his feetsies warm...

"What else Nana?" "Yay! Bunches of baby food! Yummy!"

We all went to the park before we had to get on the road to come back home. It was a beautiful day. The wind was blowing a lot. We had to keep his ears covered.

Me and Mom playing with Gabriel.

It was a very pretty park. It has exercise equipment all around it. Even the library is there. I could just see myself going to the library there and reading out by the water.

It would be fun exercising there too. Garrett was trying out some of the equipment.

Mom and Cole walking her little dog. (Midnight) Me and Shanna and Gabriel in the background. I would love to walk there every morning. The path goes all around the water.

Cole and his sweet baby.

Gabriel needed some shades!

Cole, Shanna, and Gabriel. Love this one.

They make a sweet family.

Me, Stevie and Gabriel. I was starting to get sad. I knew we were fixing to leave.

Letting him know how much I was gonna miss him.

I'm ready to go again! Christy will probably go with me next time. We need to get Jason and Gabriel together. Thank y'all for letting me share these with you.
