Ode To Dr. Seuss

On the fifteenth of May,
in the Jungle of Nool,
In the heat of the day,
in the cool of the pool...

Deegan, Would You Like A Cracker?

Yes Mommy, I believe I would.

Our Easter...Short & Sweet

I'll give you the Reader's Digest version of our Easter since I'm short on time (school is killing me) and had a request for pictures. Easter morning we got up bright and early to go to church for breakfast, early service, Sunday school and an Easter egg hunt. After our full morning we came home, died eggs and ate lunch. The boys then took naps that were much to short followed by our own egg hunt in the backyard, dinner and then spent what was left of our crazy
busy day together hanging out.

These are two of the few pictures I managed to take where
both boys were looking at the camera.

This is what I had to endure before getting those "gems."
To be honest...these are my favorites.

Just a few other random pictures I thought were cute.

Do We Do Anything Else?

Apparently not because most of my last posts involve swimming.
What can I say...we got to keep cool somehow.

Deegan looks a little too devious reaching for Camden. I think he already knows that Camden likes his personal
space and wants to invade it.

Camden had to protect his Popsicle. Deegan was ready to take a bite.

And now we're back in the pool.
Maybe we'll change things up and play in the sprinkler next?

Swim Lessons

We signed Camden up for swim lessons, or as Brian calls them "don't drown lessons," last week. He's completed his first week of class and will finish up his second this week. He's already floating by himself, putting his face into the water, jumping into the pool, kicking and beginning to work on strokes. He absolutely LOVES it!

Water Babies

Another Tooth

Deegan is a member of the Two Tooth Club!
You can tell he's teething since he'll chomp down
on anything within arms reach.

I can see and feel those little chompers but haven't been able
to get a picture of them. Trust me they're there. :)

Hanging Out By The Pool

Actually, the boys were hanging out in the pool.
Camden has been a water baby for as long as I can remember. Today was Deegan's turn to test out the water. I slathered both boys up with sunscreen, wrangled them into their swimsuits and headed out to the backyard for a little splashing in the pool. Deegan splashed around, laughed at his big brother and was all smiles while in the pool. Camden ate a push-pop while filling the pool and splashing around. This is a little preview of what many of our summer days will look like.

Mr. Independent

Yes, he's already wanting to grab the spoon and feed himself.

Oh the messes that are to come...

Splash Pad Play Date

The boys and I met up with Sarah and her two kiddos, Emma and Lane, for an afternoon at the splash pad in Kemah. We were super surprised to have the place to ourselves but happy at the same time. The kids ran all around, chases the water sprays, laughed and ultimately had a great time while Sarah and I got to sit in the shade a chat. It was a great way to spend the afternoon and kick of what is probably the first of many play dates that will involve water activities.
