Memorial Day weekend

I thought both of my kids would just be instant fish in the water, well it has taken Austin a few years to warm up to the water and realize all the fun things that playing in the pool can offer. He discovered them this weekend! He is doing a great job with his swimming and loves it when jason throws him around!

Trip to Kansas

My parents and I took the kids to Kansas this past week. We packed alot into our 3 days there. We played at Great grandma's with my cousin and her kids, We went to uncle Jon's Chick-fil-A, went swimming in lydia's neighborhood pool, had dinner out at aunt chicks, and just had a wonderful time all week. Here are some pics.....

It's pool time again!!

Well it is that time of year again!!! Swimming at Grammy and Paw Paw's. It feels like we went from rainy 60 degree weather to the low 90's of today overnight. The kids have been dying to get their suits on and try out the water. It was a little chilly and torture for the adults to sit in the hot sun and know that the water is way to cold to actually get in!!! Austin was the first to brave the frigid water but he did and he had a blast. Campbell played on the stairs and my dad actually made it in also! I enjoyed reading on the sidelines and working on getting some sort of color on my white skin!! We even had an added benefit of Jon and Doty and the girls stopping by on their way home from Nashville. Lydia stripped down for a bit to play in the water with the kids! Yay summer is here!!

This is how the day ended in the car ride home!

We are back!!

Well we have been cameraless for about a month now, but I'm back in business!! Austin had his preschool end of the year program last night. It was a little rough when I dropped him off in his room, the boy is suprisingly strong when he does not want you to leave, but I did what any good mother should do, hand him to his teacher and run out the door! But whatever Mrs. Fletcher told him worked because he was out on the stage (minus the bandana) and singing and dancing his little heart out!!

Austin and Molly!!

Austin and his favorite teacher, Mrs. Fletcher.
I can't believe he is off to kindergarten next year!!
