Texas for the 4th

We spent a week in Texas with Lindsey’s family over the Fourth of July. Uncle Scott was in from Afghanistan at the same time, so we were very happy to have everyone together. The holiday was spent playing in the pool, drinking margaritas, and eating BBQ ribs.
We were particularly impressed with Avery’s increased confidence in the pool over the course of the week. Although he’s taken swimming lessons and been in and around pools often, Avery has always been very cautious in the water. But by the end of this trip, he was swimming underwater between Mommy and Daddy. Each time he came up, he took a breath, said “again,” and dove back under water. The pool really wore him out and he took some good naps while in Texas.

Around the House

Having two kids doesn’t leave much time for blogging. We’ve been chasing after a certain rambunctious three-year-old while feeding/burping/changing his little brother. How do people with three and four kids do it?
Avery is enjoying the good weather. He loves to play in the backyard and has been going on lots of bike rides with Daddy. He also keeps busy inside when it’s raining, and shows an interest in painting and ballet (much to Mommy’s delight).
Kieron is two months old now. He still sleeps a lot and enjoys eating. He’s a sturdy little baby. He’s started to smile at us and loves having ‘conversations’ by cooing back and forth. He’s very active and likes to keep his arms free and kick his legs a lot.
Avery loves tee-ball, and has a pretty solid swing

Sometimes he’s a little lazy though

What should I paint?

Do you like my tutu?

It’s red, like a fire engine

Avery wanted to recreate the movie “Up” here
