Swimming Party!

Saturday the weather was great! We set up the pool and invited some of the cousins over to swim with us. We had a lot of fun playing in the water and sandbox then we finished up with a frozen treat. Thanks for coming everyone!

For Mother's Day, Jared built me this really nice fence that made our back yard much bigger. He also moved the sandbox to a better location. We love having it so close to our back door. We actually use it a lot more! (I'd probably say everyday) Thanks babe for the great back yard! This is how we spent our Memorial Day weekend, gettin' dirty!

Jare and I tried building sandcastles but of course Lanny couldn't resist, and knocked them all down before we could finish them.

FuN iN tHe SuN!!

We are so glad that summer is almost here! We love to play in the water. Saturday was a NiCe day so Jare got the pool out for us. We had so much fun playing together in the water. I can't believe how much Lanny has grown since the last time we played in the pool. This summer he is going to keep me on my toes. They really do grow like weeds!

The Pool
This is not my most favorite pic of myself, but I told you all I would post one of my belly so here it is. In this picture I am 33 weeks along. Only 7 weeks to go! (I don't know how I feel about I ready for this?)

The Fountain

One of our favorite ways to play in the water. Only last year Landon just sat in it and chewed on rocks with a little splashing here and there. This year, he is climbing it and giving me a heart attack! He climbs so fast that he's half way up before I can get him down again. At least he is having a ball and enjoying himself. Thanks for the great fountain Daddy!

We love Fitts Park! (AKA The Duck Park)

Ok so the truth is....I needed some space in my freezer. I always put our old bread and the ends of the loafs in the freezer to save for that "someday we can feed the ducks". Well, it turns out I had 3 loaf bags full of frozen bread! I defrosted it and we made a day of it.

I packed a lunch for Christian, Landon, and myself and we ate at the pavillion. The boys thought that was so much fun. After lunch, Grandpa met us there and fed the ducks with us. We also had a surprise guest join us. Jared was actually able to take a lunch break and he met us there too. He couldn't stay long, but it was a nice surprise.

Usually when we feed the ducks, they can't get enough and it's all we can do to get the bread to them fast enough. Not today. Either someone must have gone through the park with a bread machine before us or the ducks were fasting, because they had no interest what-so-ever in our bread. At first I was sad and thought about saving the bread for another day, but then I realized that it was mainly the action of throwing the bread into the river (or on the bank-Lanny) that the boys liked. Plus the thought of storing that much bread again--NO WAY!

Also, there are not many photos, because boys will be boys and of course they couldn't get close enough so I spent the whole time trying to keep them from falling in the river! We had a great time and I can't wait to go again. Hopefully it is before there is 3 bags of bread! I must admit I enjoy the extra space in my freezer! Thanks for joining us Grandpa and Jare!

When we got home, Lanny napped while Christian and I played outside all afternoon. He had a long day and was worn out. I think he sat down for maybe 5 or 10 minutes and he was out. Poor guy. Doesn't look comfy to me at all!
