Cool Pool

Our pool is finally cooling down a bit (down to 88 degrees).  When the Dach family came over a week or so ago, baby Andrew got to swim for the first time (when the water was still 94 degrees).  Here he is...
 A random picture of Anna Belle in PJ's, tutu, sparkle shoes, and a bow.  That's what you wear to play with your tea set, right?
You can click here to see the picture I took of Katie Beth and Anna Belle, back in March.  My how they've grown!  I just can't get over how cute it was to watch them play with the kitchen.
 The Taylor family came over with their three girls on Sunday.  Lauren, Chloe and Elise are almost 5, almost 3 and 15 months, respectively.
 Chloe LOVES the camera, and it loves her : )
 Lauren didn't really want share the floaty or take pictures, but Elise loved it.

 Here's a pic of Katie Beth's first dip in a pool, and she loved it.  She particularly liked watching Brady splash and swim by.

Happy, Happy

Anna Belle's loves the song, "If You're Happy and You Know It."  She calls it "Happy, Happy," which is how this video makes me feel.

Pool, Spa and a Baby

The kids and I went to aunt Megan's apartment to go swimming.  They have a nice little 6 inch deep wading area, which was a lot more fun for Anna Belle.  

 My little dress up girl carrying around an iPad.  She LOVES to watch SuperWhy.
 On Thursday Taylor and I got a couples massage at Fiori.  Afterwards, we sat outside and ate a little cheese and fruit plate for dinner, and finished the date with a little swim in their basement level, indoor pool... it looked very Roman.

 Yesterday, the Dach family came over with sweet baby Andrew.  He was in a really cheerful and alert mood, so I snapped a few photos of him.

First Day of Gymnasitcs

Most kids in this class cry through their first class, but not my Anna Baby.  She climbed up on the long trampoline in the corner, ran around, smiled and posed for all the coaches who cooed over how cute she was, etc.
 I frequently catch Anna Belle standing with her hands and head on the ground (perfect for the forward roll we're supposed to be practicing).  She wanted to slide down on her belly, so I had to suspend her in air a little more than I should have.
 Strong arms for hand stands.
 At the end of class, the teachers give kids stamps on their hands and feet.

 Anna Belle LOVES having stamps on her hands and feet.
 She couldn't stop looking at them while we took pictures with our favorite coach, Miss Brittny.
