Summer Update

I am so far behind on updates that I dont even know where to start! We have had a fantastic summer! We have been on several fun trips, spent lots of time in the pool, had a great 4th, been to art camp, VBS, and swimming lessons! On Father’s Day–we went with my family to Destin–it was perfect! The waves were bigger than I have ever seen them –the water was clear–the weather was perfect! We had fun jumping waves, hunting for crabs and sand fleas (they are so interesting), eating out, building sandcastles, riding Go Karts and bumper cars, and just spending time together! For the 4th–we went with my family again to The Grand Resort in Fairhope, AL–it was perfect! The pool and waterslide were amazing–they had more activities than you could possibly go to from make your own firweworks, tie dye your own t shirts, decorate your own flip flops, hoola hoop contests, fireworks, parades, –i could go on and on! We went sailing, rented bikes and rode them in front of amazing antebellum houses on the bay, watched fireworks, swam, ate too much—it was so fun! We left there and went to Louisiana to visit a friend of ours–we rode a horse and carriage and spent the day in New Orleans, hung out and swam with friends, and went on a Swamp Tour! That was soo cool! We LOVED it! We are back home now and back to the real world—working and campaigning (Sam is running for Superintendent of Lowndes County Schools)
Landry is a champion swimmer–He loves it and I am amazed at how well he swims! Isabella doesnt know how to swim –but as long as she has on her floaties–she is just fine in the pool! Landry also learned to ride a bike with no training wheels this summer! He honestly still rides the bike with training wheels more because we havent done well at practicing with his “no training wheels” bike–but he can really go on his “Big Boy” bike—we just need to do it more often! Isabella loves to draw and write letters and words–she is always asking how to spell things so she can write it! It is so amazing to see their different interests and strong areas come out as they grow!
We have had a wonderful summer so far–can not believe how fast it has flown by!
Isabella and Landry are so much fun! They just love each other and have the most amazing bond! They say the funniest things. Time–slow down! 1 more year and these babies will start kindergarten! Hope you have all had a fabulous summer too!
