Cousin Love

The cousins enjoyed each others company a couple of weeks ago.  There's only a total of 3 of them (my brother's boy and our two girls), so everyone gets a lot of attention.  My mom brought him in Friday and we had tons of fun.  I wish I would have gotten more pictures (we used my mom's camera the majority of the time).  

We started the adventures Saturday morning at the Wild Cats exhibit in Wylie.  I think William really liked it.  Then later in the day we were supposed to go swimming, but it rained and rained.  We ended up playing in the house and taking naps.  Later that evening we all loaded up and went to eat at On The Border.  We rarely go out to eat, just easier at their ages to get take out, so the girls were loving it.  Once we got back from eating it had stopped raining.  Jordan decided to load up William and Addison to go swimming.

Sunday was full of time outside and swimming.  William is a fish.  He loves the water and is very good at it for his age (almost 6).  I wish he lived a little bit closer so we could have him over more.  Addison adores him.

Ranger's Game

The girls experienced their first Rangers game on June 30th.  Before we left Jordan and I agreed that we weren't going to make it the entire game.  It was KIND OF hot and the girls aren't old enough to sit sit still that long.  However, we made it and enjoyed it.  We are so grateful for a great friend for the tickets!!!  They were in the shade, by the restrooms, and about 25 rows behind the opponents' batters box.

Favorite part of the game: Food and running around the corridor
Favorite part of the game: Yu Darvish free t-shirt.  She wore it 3 days in a row

One word for this guy: Selfless

The girls and I could not have asked for a better man to be placed in our life by God.  What a blessing every day!!!  We love you!

Swimming Lessons - Kind of a Dud

Addison finished up her swimming lessons last week.  I wouldn't say it was a waste of money, but there were some lessons where that might have been the case.  It's good that she's getting acclimated to the water, but as far as learning how to swim well we did not accomplish that.  She was more interested in what was going on with other people in the pool, splashing everyone, throwing things in the water, etc.  You get the point.  I'm pretty sure she had to go potty every day, even if we went potty right before the lesson.  She was the youngest in her group, so there were things that she didn't do as well.  We're thinking that maybe next year we'll go with a private lesson or somewhere other than the community pool with 50 other people swimming in it.
