We always love weekends around here! We got to spend lots of time together as a family the past few days which is my favorite thing to do!
Matt took Parker fishing early Saturday morning. They caught two fish while they were out!
Parker absolutely loves spending time with his Daddy! He is a lucky boy to have such a good one!
After they got home, Jake and I were able to spend some time together. We decided that it would be fun to head up to the neighborhood courts and play a little tennis! Neither one of us knew what we were doing, but it was fun trying something new! Jake got a bit frustrated (we did more chasing balls than hitting them), but I was so glad that he at least tried to play!
Sometimes Jake can be super hard on himself and has a hard time seeing all that he is good at! But let me tell you, this is one AWESOME boy!
He is so good at so many things. He is a smart little boy,
a SUPER STAR reader, an AMAZING swimmer, and quite the artist (just to name a few)! He brought this picture home the other day from school. I think they worked on it in art class, but I thought it looked pretty great! GO LIONS!
After Jake and I finished hanging out we were so HOT! We decided to grab the little ones and head back to the pool for a swim! Everyone had such a fun time swimming for a bit! We know that our hot summer days at the pool are winding down!
Let me tell you...these two are so fun together! During the day, while Jake is at school, they play so well together! They play all sorts of sweet things like mom and dad, doctor, library, camping, church, and dentist! (The other day both B and P had scheduled dental appointments for a cleaning. After they finished up I asked them what they wanted to do for the afternoon. I suggested playing outside. Brooklyn looked at me and said that she didn't think that would be a good idea because she might get her teeth dirty! Ha! Love her!)
I am so glad that I get to spend my days with them and I love how much they love each other!
And I have been brainstorming lots of ideas for this girl's FIRST BIRTHDAY which is coming up!
We are celebrating her next weekend with our family and I can't wait! I can't believe that she will be a year! It has flown by!
So long August...here comes September!
