We spent Memorial Day at Andy & Lisa's house with church friends and family. The kids were in the pool all day, barely stopping to eat, drink, or reapply sunscreen; they had a GREAT time. The weather was slightly overcast, which helped keep the temps down and while the kids played in the water, the adults ate, talked, relaxed, and had a wonderful time. It was a great way to spend Memorial Day!

She is a gift from God.

Our sweet niece, Morgan, invited us to come to school and have lunch with her today. Morgan goes to the same school the girls will attend in the fall, so we were excited to go and eat in the cafeteria and see what elementary school was all about. We found Morgan coming back from the playground and headed with her to the cafeteria. The girls loved seeing their new school and all the kids, and spending time with their cousin...thanks for inviting us Morgan, we love you!

I went to my friend Andrea's house today, along with friends Fabiola and Julie, so our kids could swim and play together. Even though the weather was mild, the sun stayed hidden, so the pool felt a little cold (especially to us moms). That didn't stop the little people from having fun - in the water and out. They are all such sweet kids. We are blessed to have them. Thanks sweet friends for a lovely afternoon, and thanks Andrea for hosting us!

We celebrated our cousin Seth's birthday and spent the day playing outside....from the slip and slide, to bikes and scooters, to a golf cart ride to the park. The girls love all their cousins and have such fun with them all. We had a great day and the fun didn't end there! We then stayed and celebrated Michael's (Jonathan's brother) birthday as well, with a cookout and a second round of cake and ice cream. Happy Birthday Seth and Michael!
