Sometimes you need a little post-processing help to get everyone to look at the same time!
Last week we spent a few days in Arkansas with the Burns side of the family. It turns out that taking pictures is outweighed by survival when the trip involves 11 children under 13. But we snapped a few even if most of them are hazy due to the lens fogging over every time I took it out of the air conditioning. It was a fun trip and I think Samuel enjoyed it the most from our family. He’s still sharing new info over a week later.
Samuel is a different boy in the pool this year! He swims, floats, slides and jumps with ease!! It was so fun to watch him learn some new strokes and gain confidence in the water. He got to be in class with his friend across the street so we had lots of fun in the van on the way home from lessons each day too. Because it’s only fun if you ride together.
We’ve had unseasonably cool weather so the punishment for getting a little rowdy was sitting out on the side. Of course, Samuel never had to do that. Ha! (see below for evidence that I’m lying…)
We recently celebrated Ma-ma’s 90th birthday with 2 parties; one at her apartment and the other with friends and family at my Mom and Dad’s house. It was a joy to celebrate with her and hear stories from dear friends and family who have known her so long. Happy birthday, Ma-ma!
