Water Baby!

It’s no secret that Lil J, is quite the water baby. This summer he has had a blast swimming in the pool. We started swim lessons about 5 weeks ago, but J would much prefer to swim around the pool In his swimmy than be told what to do in a lesson (stubborn J) He is jumping in all on his own and swimming to the edge.. he has no fear of the water at all (which can be a good and bad thing)

So That’s Where the Keys Go!

It really is amazing the things that our children pick up from us. Especially when you think they aren’t paying attention. Jackson said “mommy Keys!” and before I know it he is putting the car key in the ignition of his little red car. Such a smart cookie :)

Summer Days

Today Jackson had a bunch of his little friends over for a play date! They all had a great time playing in the kiddie pools, sprinkler and eating popsicles. The mommies and Daddies had a great time catching up while all the kiddos played!

Trip to the Mountains

Thank goodness for vacation! We made our annual trip up to the Blue Ridge Mountains for 5 days of relaxation and spending time with family! We left on Tuesday night and spend the night along the way before getting up and making the rest of the trip. Poor Jackson broke out in a fever on the way. He had no other symptoms, so it was the strangest thing. The whole time we were there we were battling a 103 degree fever. For almost 4 days he had it. The only time it would go down was right after Tylenol then it would go right back up again. Quite scary L He still managed to have a good time despite feeling crummy. We went tubing down the Taccoa river, Went White water rafting and found the most beautiful waterfalls. One of then you could actually slide dow
