Fun Happenings

 Daddy is finally back from his two week trip to Europe and we settled back into a low-key weekend at home that involved a lot of time at the pool and playing in the back yard.  They are doing a great job at the pool and are very proud that they don't hang out at the baby pool anymore.  We don't use floaties; they just swim around with their noodles or say in the shallow water (it starts at 2 ft and goes to 3.5 ft on one side of the pool).  They even went down the slide with David, which required total submersion.  They loved it! 

They got their new full sized beds with new mattresses and bedding.  It's so pretty (picture to come).

The pictures above are from a recent playdate (is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen) and watching firemen play basketball before gymnastics.  BTW, they have learned how to do a cartwheel!  Big girls. 

Indiana Trip

What fun we had in Indiana.  Visits to their Grandparents, Great Aunts, Great Uncles, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Second Cousins, and friends.  Lots of trips to fun places, including the Indianapolis Children's Museum, Fort Wayne Science Museum and Fort Wayne Zoo. Most importantly, lots of quality time with family, including fun at everyone's houses, cookouts, birthday celebrations and a visit to the Benson side of the family where I saw the rebuilt covered bridge built by E.L. Kennedy (my great, great grandfather) in 1886 (on the list of Historic Places), which was wiped out by a tornado.   So very special to our family.
