Swim Lessons

Trey was so excited that he was able to take swimming lessons this summer. The class was only a week long, but he really learned a lot. He practiced putting his head under water, blowing bubbles, floating on his back, kicking his legs, and doing strokes with his arms. At first, he was very hesitant to do anything that the teacher (Melinda) asked him to do. But, towards the end of the week, he could do all that she asked. By the next week, when we would go swimming as a family, he would wear a life jacket, but could do all the things he learned really well. I can't wait to put Trey in swimming lessons next year to really help him to be able to swim totally on his own. I think this summer, the lessons really helped him to build his confidence and give him exposure to what he is capable of doing in the water.

This month...

Tally is starting to climb on things (but still not walking) and Trey fell off the swing in our backyard and smeared his face on the grass. It's really not a bad injury, it just looks pretty awful.

Father's Day

For Father's Day my sister and I got together to make these photo collages for Jordan and for our Dad. We didn't really get to celebrate Father's Day like we would have liked to because we were driving home from Utah for the Raganar race. But, we still hope that Jordan felt how loved he is and how important he is to the kids and me. We Love You!!

11 months

Tally is pulling up on everything, Trey is her favorite, and she is doing really well at eating regular food. She likes to brush her own hair with a baby hair brush and loves swimming in the pool too. She even went to her first movie, "Kung Fu Panda" at Town Square for the free summer movies. Tally is doing wonderful and still such a happy baby!

Pump it Up

Alison and I took the kids to Pump it up. Trey has been there once before, but was still a little small to enjoy it. This time, he was big enough, but a little timid. I think he had just as much, or more, fun riding in the little car. Alison and I took turns taking Trey down the slides, which he liked. But, one time, Alison just pushed him down by himself to see if he would like it, and he DIDN'T! It was so funny to see how mad he got. When he got to the bottom, he stood up and pointed his finger down at the slide and screamed at Alison, "I said I didn't want to go by myself!!" It was hilarious... yes, we felt bad, but it was hilarious. Tally had fun just crawling around, and the twins were pretty good too. We'll have to go back again soon, but now that school it out, I don't think we will have it all to ourselves like we did this time. Oh well.

Swing Set

We got a new swing set for out backyard! A family in our ward was moving, so we bought it from them and took it off their hands. Trey has LOVED IT!! We're so glad that the kids have a place to play now in our own backyard. Hopefully it will bring a lot of happiness to our family for years to come.
