Last weekend, we went to our friends, Billy and Julie's, house on the lake for a wonderful 40th birthday celebration for Billy. The weather was beautiful, we were surrounded by friends and family, and the girls had their first boat ride. They had a great time playing with their friends and cousins and were so tired out, they fell asleep the moment we pulled out of the driveway to leave.
Jonathan and I took the girls to the park a few days ago for what we think was their first experience on a swing. They were a little hesitant at first, but soon warmed up and loved it - as long as we didn't go too fast. We are having such a great time with them, sharing all these new things and watching them embrace each new experience with such joy and wonder.
On a very sad note, we lost a dear member of our church family last week in a tragic accident. We will miss our friend Jimmy, and our hearts, prayers and deepest sympathies go out to Karen, Diane, Carrie and Andy and all their family.
The girls loved their first boat ride
They didn't much care for the life jackets however
Just a little restricting, but necessary
