More Birthday Party (and Sunflower)

These are Amanda's pictures, so I had to sneak in the sunflower picture that she took.

Veronika's Birthday!

We celebrated Veronika's 5th Birthday, Saturday with a pool party. It was a beautiful day. She had friends and family to celebrate with. Andrea and Steve made a really cute Princess Ariel Party, with a lady like pinata, you pull ribbons to get the candy, rather than hit it with a stick! The lunch was delicious, hot dogs, chips and dip, watermelon and a really cute Princess Cake. It was a really fun event.

Father's Day

We celebrated Father's Day at Cock of the Walk, same place we went for Mother's Day. I wanted to go back so we could have the group picture, this time with Veronika. It's a nice place to go with children.
The kids get to feed the ducks and catfish after we feed ourselves. But this time there was a copperhead sunning on the rocks. Yuck! I am so afraid of snakes.
Happy Fathers Day to Ron, Brad and Steve. Happy Fathers Day to all you other guys too!

Babysitting and Swimming!

Brad and Paula celebrated their anniversary and let us babysit the boys overnight.
They were so much fun! We swam before dinner and after dinner.
Ron and I swam with the boys before dinner. Then Andrea, Steve and Veronika came over, so we swam again.
Tucker tried to fall asleep in the pool, so Poppa gave him a warm bath. Then he went to sleep on the footstool while Poppa was getting his pajamas on. He slept all night, from 8:00 pm to 7:00 am. And woke up happy.

Jackson loves the water and didn't want to get out after swimming twice. Veronika went from being a little scared of the water to going under water in less than a week. Jackson watched her and is about ready to try going under.
I can't wait to watch them swim at Veronika's Birthday Party. Kids learn so much from each other.

Silver Dollar City

Our first visit to Silver Dollar City, Andrea was 6 weeks old. We still love going there! I don't have pictures of the big kids soaking each other, but they had fun too.
