First swim at the Aquatic Center! Elise was so excited because her school took a class field trip there in May, but because of her leg she had to sit and watch.
Monroe's first trip to the pool!
Watch her reaction

I asked Carter why he was making this face he said the sun and water were in his eyes, classic


She loved it!

Summer Days

So when I think back to last summer I remember being hot and pregnant, which basically meant I wasn't up to do as much as I usually would with the kiddos. So far this summer I made a goal to do one fun thing every day with the kids. The one we do almost daily is the kids get sprayed with water on the trampoline. We have been to the library, on walks, playing with friends, and swimming. As for some updates on the kids, Monroe turned 8 months old and she is getting so big, wearing size 18-24 months! 18 month fits best though. Some 12 month clothes still fit her, but I might have to squish her a little bit. She now has three teeth on the bottom, can feed herself cheerios like a champ, can pull herself up in her crib and she is starting to move forward. She will get this whole crawling thing down very soon. It also seems like she likes to sing along when she hears music. Elise is happy to be cast free although I remind her daily to be extra careful and to take breaks to rest her leg. Carter has figured how to snap and do a front flip on the tramp, oh and he's started training so in the future he can be on America's Ninja Warrior :) Ha! He also got his very own library card this week. Until next time...

Did you know you can check out 50 items at a time? Whoa! I don't think I want that much responsibility, ha!
 Out for some walks



 A pizza and root beer in their swimsuits kind of a night
Monroe seems to always try to sing along when music is playing. Future superstar?
