Swim fishy swim...

This kid literally grew up over night. He "was three and then changed to four." It's been a summer of HUGE growth with him. HE loves to swim. Actually love would be an understatement. I guess he does come by it naturally. ;)

Fear of the water hasn't ever been a issue with either of our littles. Wyatt turned 3 at the beginning of the summer and within 2 weeks was jumping off the diving, swimming to the side (without a floatation device of any kind), getting rings from the shallow, etc.  It just clicked...

About 1/2 through the summer he started asking me to teach him the "right way to swim." There weren't many places to start lesson this late in the summer so we settled for a 6 week class at the local YMCA.

He loves it! We only have 3 classes left and he is already asking for more...;)

Jammin at the Zoo 2014

Last week was the Jammin at the Zoo event we attend every year! It's always a blast! Mark I have gone for 6 years. As soon as Kelley and Tyler moved to STL we knew they would love it as well. The Zoo is closed down and only open to paying participants. There is live music, food, drinks, etc. and LOTS of people watching. Ha ha! 
The above picture is because I love comparison's so fun to have friends to do life with! The animals are usually out as well. Mark and Tyler wore JEANS...jeans people! It's July in MO!!! That is so rare. The night was perfect with a light breeze.

It was a blast...and did I mention I am one lucky lady that this guy was my date!?!!? Yahoo for more Jammin's.

Dance Recital

I can't believe it's been this long since I have posted. Well, actually I can. It's been a busy summer to say the least. I am sure everyone is saying the same thing as Aug. gets closer. I am NOT ready for summer to end...especially since Wyatt will be heading to preschool 3 days a week. You can totally roll your eyes but I already know it's going to be an adjustment. ;)

We have stayed busy! Back in June Sis had her first dance recital. She LOVED every second of it. I wasn't sure how she would do once she got on stage but...surprise, she loves the attention. She knew lots of the moves as well! (especially being the youngest in the class;)

Arrgggg- Party #2

Last weekend we celebrated Wyatt's birthday with friends and family in STL! It was such a special time! Wyatt enjoyed himself...and had a great time with all who came to celebrate!!

The weather was perfect again and we all watch him open gift, ate pizza, and enjoyed being together! After getting home he wanted to set up all his new toys ASAP! ;) He is loving Hot Wheels and couldn't wait to set up his new tracks! Which now take up our entire basement...thankfully we are "remodeling"downstairs so it's mostly an open area or there wouldn't be space. Ha ha!!!

And a sweet 4 year old boy having sweet dreams. ;)

Arrrrggg- Party #1

We had Wyatt's birthday party a few weekends ago in Jackson, at my parent's. It was a blast! We were a bit nervous about the weather but it all turned out perfect! 

He was SUPER excited to blow out his candles and Sis REALLY wanted to help as well. ;) Wyatt picked the "pirate" theme and I think it turned out so cute! 

Opening presents...

We cleaned up and packed the car...we headed back to STL after a great weekend with family and friends! Wyatt couldn't wait to get home and play with his new toys!
