Bentlee Nina Riddle
She was born
on August 30th, 2010
in Charleston, SC

Dad, mom and Bentlee

Aunt Lorissa's first look.

Grandma's first look.

David's nightly routine- playing video games
with Bentlee sleeping on his lap.

Her room was fixed so sweet with
white aspen trees adorning the

Her cool 'space pod' swing.

Content in Grandma's arms.

At night she was swaddled in this...
but she is a little 'Houdini'
and always mangaged to
get a hand or arm
out somehow!

An outing to the Market in Charleston.

Too many nights up!

Her bath!!!

Her bows always managed to come down
over her eyes in a 'face mask'.

Her birthday cake!

Lyndsie, Bentlee and Lorissa

Three generations of women!
Oh yeah! Look out world!

David, Lyndsie, Bentlee and Grandma

A trip to the beach for Grandma's sake!

Their house in Charleston.

The living room from above.

My absolute favorite so far!
I love being a Grandma!

Andrew's Baptism and A Visit to Andrew's Lake

I am almost caught up on my blogging! That means
pictures of the grandbabies to come!!
First, Andrew got baptized this summer...

...and his dad got to do it!

Love the look on his face here!

Hugs from dad!

One Sunday when we just had two kids....
we decided to go for a drive.

We passed the sign for Andrew's Lake everytime
we went to Silverton or to Ouray.
So, with Andrew along, we packed a lunch and off
we went.

While eating our lunch we had the whole flock of ducks
around us!

Attempted to take a hike around the lake...
not exactly a marked path. So the kids
would run ahead and scout it out for us.
This one was a wrong turn.

Really a pretty little lake.

Lots of wildflowers out at this time.

We did actually make it all the way around the lake
but we sort of had to forge our own trail.
A great day!
