Saturday Pool Day

We had the pleasure of my fabulous niece coming to visit on Saturday and it was HOT! We decided the best thing to do is head to my Auntie's pool. A great way to spend a few hours. 

Olive Lynn did not enjoy the water.....again. She's in for a rude awakening come July cause I've signed Dane up for swimming lessons and we'll be at the pool everyday for 2 whole weeks. Ha! She's gonna get in too. Gonna make her learn to love it. No way am I gonna let her sentence me to the sidelines all summer long. I'm getting in the water and so is she! So there.

Mariana and Olive.
 Mari is the sweetest, most helpful girl. The kids love her.

The water was really cold (probably why Olive wasn't thrilled) but Dane didn't care at all.
He had a blast!

Stuart Grimes

 The other day while eating our lunch of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches outside Dane says "Look Mom! It's an eagle. He's name is Stuart. Stuart Grimes. That's my brother."  It wasn't actually an eagle. It was a hawk I think. Anyway, I  happened to be taking pictures at the time so I captured his facial expressions as he told me this. Funny.

He was pretty serious about it.
To my knowledge he doesn't actually have a eagle brother named Stuart.

P.S. I have no idea why he's wearing goggles.

Olive LOVES books!

 Olive just loves to look through books. Especially the touchy feely ones right now. Often times you will find her sitting on the floor somewhere ruffling through the pages of a book. How cute. Could I have a reader on my hands. Love that!

Sometimes Dane reads to her.

Daddy reads to Olive.

Sorry for the long delay in posting anything. We're just busy livin life. We have had some fun, like visiting the Springfield Splash Zone with friends. I didn't take any pictures though. Hoping to head to the pool later maybe. We'll see.

Still searching for the perfect fabric.....

Memorial Day Activites

Memorial Day, aka Olive's actual birthday. We headed down to Zanesfield's parade in the morning because Dane was riding his fourwheeler in the parade for the 1st time. Exciting!

Momo Longhsore & Olive. 

It was HOT, HOT, HOT even at 9am and Olive was not pleased. It was her morning naptime and she just cried and cried until the band started. If you look real close she has a single tear rolling down her cheek. Precious baby. 

Oh my, here he comes!
 I almost wanted to cry. Such a big boy.

Here he comes...

Yea! My boy. He looked so cute!

Momo Peterson & G-ma Burrey.

We let Olive open her birthday present from us later in the day. After much thought we decided to get her a water table. She loved it! Actually her AND Dane just loved it. Should be a perfect toy to play with outside this summer.

*Just got back from Olive's well baby check today. She's petite. "Long and lean" were the Dr.'s exact words. Miss Olive was only 18lbs and 10oz today and 30" inches long. Geez. Is this girl ever gonna hit 20lbs!  She's a happy healthy girl though. No worries.

We are also busy here planning and preparing for her birthday party here on Sunday. Hope the weather is good!
