Grandmother/Denver, and Summertime

Memorial Day weekend was a very memorable time for our family as we traveled from all over the U.S. to Littleton, Colorado to say good-bye to the earthly body of Mary Killgore, Luke's sweet Grandmother. She has been reunited with her husband, Luke's Goodaddy, who I unfortunately didn't have the pleasure of meeting. They are both home with Jesus and so you could say the weekend was a celebration of sorts. I know they would have thoroughly enjoyed the wild bunch who descended upon their house this weekend.
Every girl's crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man!
Austin provided the music for the evening...amazing!
Jolene and her Houston cousins. She loved all the attention she got from these kids.
A little friendly family game of baseball in the backyard/fairway.
Handsome Bourlon brothers with the little Miss.

In other news...the BENDERS HAVE MOVED TO AUSTIN! We are so excited and Jolene and I have already hung out with Morgan and Amelia multiple times. Hopefully that will be a regular thing. We can't wait to see them without either one of us having to drive for two and a half hours. Another perk is that the Benders are staying with an incredible family for the summer who happen to live in a beautiful home with a pool. The boys (and I stress the term boys here) decided to play a pool game (Morgan, what was the name?) for a good hour or more where they would toss a football, set it up, and then try and hit it as they were jumping in. The four of them finally accomplished the feat and were elated (and tired).
Luke told me to post this one. He said, "We can make fun of Bender." YEEAA, Dude!
Micah, Harper, and Amber
Right before Jolene went under water and decided to call it quits for the day.
Classic. Four babies? Put all of them in one chair and see what happens.
These four girls will be in the same grade growing up and surely will question the number of couch/chair photos we took of them when they were babies.

Four Month Checkup Stats

A little behind on posting with all the travels we've made recently. Here are Jolene's most recent stats:

Weight: 12 pounds, 5.6 ounces (25% percentile)

Height: 24.5 inches (51% percentile--watch out, she may be taller than Luke and me)

Head: 16.25 inches (51% percentile)

She is growing and changing every day. Here are a few photos taken recently...

Nice profile of the belly...she works hard for that waistline!
Taken at four months at Brooke and Doug's potential new home.
Daddy put together the jumperoo and despite repeated jumps, it remains intact. Nice work. Notice the blanket under her feet...she doesn't quite reach the ground yet so we help her out.
Jolene will sit and listen to her Daddy play guitar forever (or at least half an hour which is forever for a four month old).
Seriously, Daddy? I wonder how many times he'll get this look from her as she grows up.

I'll post more soon on our trip to Denver for Grandmother's funeral...too many good pictures and memories to try and add here. I hear the little one waking from her nap, so gotta go!
