Cecilia's first swim!

Cecilia had her first swim this week since it is too hot now to let her sit on the side in the car seat or stroller or for me to sit with her! She really liked being in the water with everyone.


 Gloria and Stephen have been getting along so much better and swimming together a lot when we go to the pool. I think them being in swim team together has really improved their relationship. Yay!

Ranch Visit

After a blissfully relaxing Father's Day, Monday we headed to a nearby exotic animal ranch to visit the K family, who was renting it for a few nights.
The Bison...this guy was big and burly!
European Deer
 Miniature horses
 and here come the zebras

 Sebastian was so excited after one of his trips on the golf cart. He came up to me yelling, "I GOT TO FEED THE ANIMALS! I THROWED THE FOOD AT THEM!" He just kept saying that over and over again. Priceless!

And Friday...

We had fun swimming with our normal Friday play group in the morning (sans Gloria who was at an Oncologist followup with Austin). Then Gloria and I rearranged their room and hit the big parish garage sale in the afternoon. I had to make a quick run back to the sale this morning to pick up a new bike for Anastasia (the one her size from Allia was falling apart!) because everything at the Friday presale is double price, and that was too much for a bike.

I'm getting nightstands to go in between the beds, but I couldn't find them in town. So we'll have to wait for them to ship. We are so glad to have our big girls back and to hear about their week of camp (even if they did bring a cold home with them. :/ )
