Pool Days

We have been visiting the local pool often these days and having so much fun. This week we met several friends including our Young Moms Bible Study for a swim get together.

Swimming is about to become much more serious business this week though as the boys take their ISR refresher course daily starting Monday. Here is Andrew's float exam from last year.
I have a feeling it's going to be a rough week, especially for Adam who has no problem expressing his displeasure with things and is much better at being uncooperative than he was last year!

School's Out for Summer!

The boys had their last day of toddler preschool and it was a sad day, especially for me because I don't know how I'm going to keep us occupied all summer! The boys were blessed with awesome teachers and we are going to miss them next year when the boys are in the 2 yr old class.

Here is a picture with Miss Carley & Miss Cathy and a few of their classmates that hadn't left before I got a picture

Caught with his hand in the cookie jar (jelly bean drawer)
The boys discovered where daddy hides his jelly beans and Adam got more than he bargained for when he was sneaking some and accidently closed the drawer on himself.

Memorial Day was a blast of swimming, eating, playing, and boating. Adam even swam in the lake for the first time and both boys jumped into the pool to us from the side. But sadly my camera battery died before I could get any pictures other than these.

Me & My Crew

Sweet Bailey

Here are some more pics from Kaylie's party that Rebecca sent me. This ones funny because I'm feeding the boys cake and Adam is following the spoon as I feed Andrew hoping I'll miss or that he'll intercept it! These boys love birthday cake!

Silly Andrew was swimming in the sand box while eating the sand.

NICU Reunion 2009

Last Saturday we went to the Woman's Hospital of Texas annual NICU reunion which took place at the newly remodeled Houston Children's Museum. It was a lot of fun to visit with the doctors that cared for our children and to see some of our good friends. I think the doctors enjoy it as much as the patients, one even saying that seeing kids like Andrew (& Adam) makes what they do every day worth it. They just can't believe that Andrew had a Grade IV bleed and were so impressed with his outcome. We are so blessed to have two healthy amazing children. Thank you to all the doctors & nurses in the NICU's all across the country that serve these tiniest and sickest patients. We are forever grateful!

The Children's Museum renovation was very impressive! The kids, both big & small, had a blast!

The Light Floor was really fun

Mooooooo! Breaking the rules by sitting on the cow

This photo reminds me of when we leave Old Navy and Andrew tells the plastic painted manikins "Bye Bye Fake People"

After the reunion, we'd all worked up an appetite so we went to Maggiano's for a family style feast that bordered on gluttony, it was delicious!

Adam got impatient waiting for the food so PeePaw was quick on his feet and showed Adam how to dip his finger in a sugar packet pile for a little snack.

Andrew LOVED sharing dessert with PeePaw


What a fun day!!
