Summer summer

Here's what we've been up to the past little bit. We met our cousins at the Gateway fountains last weekend. It has been 100 degrees for the past several days, so we have been in the water as much as we can when we aren't inside.

Molly was the bravest in our family.

Ali did get a bit wet though!

Here they are with their cousins and Jackson (you can see Laney's back and cute Reese up front).

Jackson checking it out.

This is the newest game we've been playing--push Jackson around in the shopping cart! Molly had the idea to push him in the baby stroller, but I suggested she used the sturdier shopping cart instead.

I love this. He has both of his puppies, a golf ball, and his little feet are crossed. He loves it! And I must say, it makes him sleepy every time. Perfect precursor to nap time or bed time!

We met my sister and her kids last week for fun at Jungle Jim's. I took a couple pics of the girls on some rides but they came out really blurry. Jackson only got to go on the carousel, but I did put him in the bounce house/playground area and he loved it! You have to be 2 to ride anything officially.

Ali has been taking swimming lessons. It takes her about 5 minutes to get into the water each day and I have to bribe her (fruit snacks usually does the trick). But today I had Molly take her over and she didn't try to back out at all! It was a miracle. We have 2 more days left. Molly will start in a few weeks now that preschool is over. I'm putting Ali back in again then too. I even signed up my niece because my sister will be in town too! Party in the pool :) I hope!

Ali's swimming teacher is actually our neighbor! He is really patient with the kids.
