We have had a great summer at the pool!! Whitten started off the year scared to death of the water and now he is a little fish!! He loves to jump off the diving board and even tries to do the same tricks that Vaiden and Michael do. Vaiden has really improved also. He loves to dive in the deep end (10feet) to retrieve rockets and sticks. He also loves to jump off the diving board!! I hate the summer is coming to an end!!


Abby, Vaiden, Andrew, William. and Whitten

We spent one summer afternoon Slip-n-Slidin' at our neighbors house. It was so much fun and the kids had a blast!! Here are some pics from that day!!

We had a great 4th this year. The weather was so nice and the Grove was such a fun place to be. We had a picnic in the Grove, listened to some music, watched the boys jump in the jump houses, visited with friends, and watched some great fireworks. Happy 4th everyone!!

July 4th Kid's Parade

We entered the children's parade again this year. Last year, Vaiden noticed another child riding his motorized truck in the parade and begged for a solid year to do the same. Michael and I agreed to let him and Whitten ride theirs this year. Well, it was a big mistake!! Since I am 8 months pregnant, I did make the walk with them, so when the boys came back from the parade, I could tell Michael was not a happy Daddy!! He said the boys didn't drive well at all!! Vaiden was too busy looking for his friends on the sidelines and would run too close to the others in front and Whitten was in full speed and got mad when he had to drive slow. We learned our lesson and just so you looking for us next year in the parade with our bikes and scooters again!!

July 4th Family Fun Run

Vaiden entered the July 4th Family Fun Run again this year. He did such an awesome job!! He loves to run and race other kids, so this was a great day for him. I love to see him towards the end of his races...he kicks his little legs into high gear and finishes so strong!! We are so proud of him!!

Whitten's first movie...

I took the boys to see Toy Story 3 a couple weeks ago and the movie was great!! We went with some friends and we ate at Pizza Hut before the movie started. It was a great day!! They all loved the movie as much as us adults did. This movie was Whitten's first trip to the theather. He really did well and sat through the movie until the last 10 minutes. I was pretty surprised!! I hope that we can go again soon!!
