Double Digits

Karbdy-43

How is it possible that I have a grandson who is 10 years old?!

 

Karbdy-60

Kristoffer and Dana invited us all over for a combination birthday party and Father's Day gathering.

 

Karbdy-1

Karter requested a jelly cake for his birthday, so I got up super-early to make it before church.

I only make these twice a year...I can't refuse my Karterman!  

 

Karbdy-2

Since he's been having some dermatology issues with cumulative sun damage on his face, Kim's taken to wearing a hat.  Seems weird to see him in a cap after all these years...he never was one to wear a hat.

So the kids fixed him up with a nice cap.  He can keep his now-dirty John Deere hat for working outside...

 


Karbdy-2

The oldest Gray man and the youngest Gray man....my father-in-law Kenny is almost 82 and grandson Daniel is 6 weeks.

 


Karbdy-2

Chef Kristoffer with grill duties...

 


Karbdy-2

Fun outside on the trampoline!

 

Karbdy-8

It was VERY HOT and humid...as in 90+ degrees plus and at least 90% humidity.  But Lucy, Kelsey, and Kassie didn't care...

 


Karbdy-8

The party was planned for outside, but the extreme heat moved most of the festivities inside.

 


Karbdy-8

Uncle Kyler talking baseball with Kaden...

 


Karbdy-8

...and the little girls loving on Daniel! 

 

Karbdy-63

He's already a ladies' man!  Aunt Emmy got some snuggles in!

Supper time...

 


Karbdy-14

...then we all ventured outside for a little after-dinner entertainment.  

 


Karbdy-14

Doesn't everybody shoot off rockets for after-dinner entertainment?!

Ready for launch!

 


Karbdy-21

10.  9.  8.  7.  6.  5....

 

Karbdy-25

...4.  3.  2.  1....

 


Karbdy-25

BLAST OFF!!!

 


Karbdy-25

Then the race for rocket retrieval.

 


Karbdy-25

Let's try the yellow one!

 

Karbdy-29
Karbdy-29

This time Krew did the countdown...

 


Karbdy-29

Somewhere in this soybean field is a yellow rocket...

 


Karbdy-29

After a few minutes of searching, it was successfully recovered.


Karbdy-37

The Birthday Boy's turn to launch...

 


Karbdy-37

This one didn't go very high and almost landed on the electrical line near the house.

 

Karbdy-20

Some didn't wander out of the shade and watched the rocket launch from afar...

 

Karbdy-41

Back inside for presents...

 


Karbdy-41

Cousin Abram's cute photo bomb...

 


Karbdy-41

The kids are always so excited to get clothes. Not.  But their parents are!

 


Karbdy-41

Now that's more like it!  FIREWORKS!!!

 

Karbdy-47

Tickets to see "Annie"...and lots of other nice gifts!  Karter made out like a bandit!

 


Karbdy-47

Papaw and I got him a hoverboard with helmet and pads...

 


Karbdy-47

Lucy tried on his helmet...

 


Karbdy-47

There is definitely a learning curve and his first few attempts were shaky...

 

Karbdy-53
Karbdy-53
Karbdy-53

But Karter quickly got the hang of it, and after a little practice is now hovering like a pro!

 


Karbdy-53

Kristoffer just had to try...my boys have not yet completely grown up!

 

Karbdy-61

"Happy Birthday to you!...."

 


Karbdy-61
Karbdy-61

The jelly cake was a big hit all around!

 

Karbdy-70

Karbdy-71

Juni was a quiet celebrant, but she enjoyed her cake and ice cream!

 


Karbdy-71

A wonderful Father's Day with our sweet boy celebrating...

...double digits.
