We celebrated father’s day with my dad and headed out to Dripping Springs for a fun day at their neighborhood pool.
Miles learned a valuable lesson that day: It’s a good idea to listen to your mommy when she says not to jump off the edge of the pool without someone standing there to catch him. Luckily my dad made it over to him within a few seconds. Needless to say, he listened to me when I told him to wait for me to jump after that little episode.
After about 30 minutes in the pool, Lyla decided she LOVED it and was kicking and squealing the entire time. I’m looking forward to getting them in swimming lessons when they are a little older.
Nothing helps make a small duplex more bearable than getting out of it and going to visit family! My cousin, Cameron, (aka Aunt Camei) was kind enough to let me and the kids descend on her house in Dallas for a week. We visited both sets of grandparents. It was a lot of fun watching Miles play with my grandmother.
Sometimes he was a little too rough with her and tried to rough-house with her just like he does with me. We also visited Mema and went swimming at the pool at her condo. Uncle Marc and Camei had a blast playing with the kids.
Miles had no fear when it came to jumping off the edge of the pool into Camei or Marc’s arms. My grandmother, Mema, wasn’t feeling too well that day but by the end of our visit she was feeling much better.
A few days before our Dallas trip Eric converted Miles’ bed into a full-size bed.
Sadly the footboard is in the very back of our storeroom so eric had to rig the footboard with a few 2×4’s. It always helps to have a handy husband
Not much to report on the house. Just more dirt work. Hopefully by the end of next week we’ll have a date for the foundation pouring!
