Pictures, Pool, and Pokey Hair

We have been enjoying our pool this year! It hasn't been incredible warm yet but the kids don't mind. My O has come leaps and bounds since the end of May, when we opened our pool. She can now jump off the side of the pool and the diving board. About a week ago she started swimming with only one floaty and just this past Sunday she found out that she can swim without any floaties. What a big girl!!! She told Jay and I on Sunday "I am so proud of myself, I was afraid and now I'm not" She now goes all around the pool in her frog/doggy pattle style swim. Its not the most beautiful swimming but she makes it look so cute. Ike is doing a lot better around our pool too. The last incident has made him more cautious near the pool.

Well, I wanted to show some pictures, so enjoy!



On the 4th of July

Jay crossed his eyes on purpose!





































Wanted to show you the flowerbed that I have been working on. It will some day have a fire pit in the center.

I had to add this picture because of the wings coming out of Ike's head!

This is the first time I have added pictures so sorry they are all over the place! I hope you had fun looking at them anyway!
