Memorial Day weekend marked our last hurrah before Cory started his full time job, and I like to think we made the most of it. My parents came down from North Carolina and finally got to meet Amelia! It was so fun to introduce her to them. She smiled a them for a moment and then promptly fell asleep, as she is wont to do.
Over the weekend, we attempted to get Nathaniel's reaction to his little baby cousin. He was disinterested most of the time, but a few times he gave us this look (shown above) that seems to say, "Is this really all she's going to do? Really?" She'll get more interactive soon Nathaniel, I promise. For now I'm just enjoying the long periods of slumber in which I can clean out closets and catch up on Netflix.
Anyway, my Mom bought my Dad a new grill for Father's Day, but we decided to break it in early. It's so fancy! It gets like, 700 degrees in 5 minutes. And it's shiny. And...that's about as much as I know about it. But it seems pretty sweet!
The boys were all outside around the grill while my Dad cooked up the steak. Something about cooking outdoors just calls to them. Even baby Nathaniel couldn't get enough. Such a man's man.

|Life tip: Grill corn in the husk for about 30 minutes. Its delish.|
Ever since he was a tiny newborn, Nathaniel has really been the apple of Grandpa Hansen's eye. He laughs hysterically every time my dad plays with him, and will stare intently into his eyes when he's talking. My dad has always bitten his tongue when he's concentrating or distracted, and Nathaniel will do the same thing! I was snapping a few photos of them together, and in one of them they were doing the weird tongue thing! Priceless. They are two of a kind.
My parents headed back to North Carolina early Monday morning, so we spent the holiday with Cory's family. They were grilling steak too, so we ate like king's two days in a row! So lucky.
Also, we coordinated our outfits. We're totally those people. And I'm not sorry even a little bit.
P.S. Arrested Development Season 4...was lacking. I laughed maybe 4 times. So sad.
