Swim Ranch

Peyton and Parker went to their second year of Swim Ranch a couple weeks ago. This year Josh got in the pool with Parker -every-single-day! Daddy was such a trooper! During the week of their lessons I still couldn't get in the pool since I just had Jack.

Two of my sweet boys.

I love Parker in his googles-too cute.

Practicing getting out of the pool with Ms. Virgina. She was my swim teacher when I was little too. But he thought it was extra cool that her grandson plays football for Shiloh.

He tried to dog paddle by himself and when he reached the wall and was not a happy boy. But the tears didn't last too long. I think that was the only time he cried all week.

Yea Parker for finishing another year of the Water Babies class!

This year Peyton moved up to Lane One. He's always loved the water but never liked to go under which you do a lot of in lane one. He improved each day even though he was a little scared at times. But by the end of the week he was swimming all by himself without his buoy and even going under water without it bothering him.

Happy boy kicking away.

Learning to swim with no buoy.

High-five from his teacher for swimming all the way down his lane with no buoy!

Peyton we are proud of you and how brave you were this week! You turned into a fish within just a few days!
Jack hung out with me by the pool most days. We were lucky and the weather wasn't too hot for him. Next year he will get a turn at Swim Ranch but for now I'm enjoying him being so little.

Happy Birthday Rick & Wedding Pictures

We wanted to wish my brother a Happy 26th Birthday today! I can't believe my brother is married and about to be in his third year of law school. I couldn't be happier for him. The next couple of pictures were taken a couple nights ago during his early birthday dinner at my parents house. Dad grilled steaks and then we swam in their pool. My boys love hanging out with their Uncle Rick and Aunt Jessica.

Three days before Jack was born my brother married Jessica. I am excited to finally have her as a sister in law. Here are some pictures from their beautiful wedding last month. The boys were the ring bearers. Their wedding was in Conway and my doctor didn't want me to go but I was so happy at the last minute I was able to be there for their special night.

Our last family picture just the four of us but we are so glad that we are a family of 5 now!

I'll leave you with a picture of Jack that was taken last night. I can't believe my baby turned four weeks old this past Tuesday! Where did the month of June go? We are having so much fun with him and thank God daily for him.
