Spring River Fun!

Well, Lance decided we should take an impromptu trip to Hardy, Arkansas to canoe down the Spring River with just Jesse, since he starts school in 2 weeks! Well, we had a blast and tumped over just once and made it back to Bartlett in one piece. Jesse enjoyed the time with just the 2 of us and we enjoyed the company as well!

Yes, I WAS doing most of the work.....

For most of the 5 miles down river, we could see lots of turtles sunning on logs, which Jesse just loved and had to get a photo of for the blog! Lots of fun in Arkansas and promises to post again real soon!

Fun in July!!

Well, we've just been having a great summer and I'm so glad my kids never tire of the zoo!!! It seems like we discover some new event or activity every time we come! This zoo visit we had the pleasure of Nana accompanying us! The kids loved it because that means sno-cones!! It was a lovely day and not hot!!
My handsome boy really starting to look like a little man.....

She was cooking while waiting on the rest of us to leave for Church...

Guess who found Jesse's old Halloween costumes???
Promises to post soon!

More fun in July!

Well, we've had lots of fun over the last week doing many fun things around town. Yesterday we ventured to the Mud Island Riverwalk with our friends and neighbors Mrs. Amy, Ryan, & Baby Jillian. It was warm, but the kids loved splashing along the riverwalk in the cool water!

Claire loves to dress up, and now she has an outfit like her baby Lily!

How we love the Summer!

Jesse woke up on July 1st and ran straight outside, pajamas and all, to pick the 1st ripe tomato of the season.
Claire started swim lessons this week and is doing great! She sits on the edge of the pool until her instructor gets her and is holding her breath under water for 6 seconds.

Jesse and her instructor, Ms. Lydia.

We really have to get Jesse to stop holding his nose.....
