Happy Birthday to me!!

I had SUCH a nice birthday this year!!!  Jared was so nice to share his Father's Day with my birthday.  He even did all the dishes.  I got so many calls and birthday wishes--I feel so loved and blessed.  I AM so blessed to have so many kind friends and a loving family.  THANK YOU EVERYONE who called or talked to me at church or text-ed or facebook-ed or came over.  I am one lucky girl!!!

Our first family bike ride of the season!

We biked out to "Remember the Main Park" last Saturday with some friends from our neighborhood.  It's about a 14 mile round trip ride.  We all had such a great time!!  We LOVE our bike trailer!  Sam and Quinn like to hold and look at their helmets, but they don't like wearing them.  The park had a fun play structure and a nearby river...what more could two little boys want?  AND me and Jared weren't too sore the next day--I guess that means we're in shape!  Yeah...we're pretty awesome!

Swim lessons for Sammy

 Here he is waiting patiently (honestly...I was as surprised as you are) for his teachers to arrive so he could get in the water.  Before he can get in the water he has to get showered.  He hates this part but it is a little fun for me.
 Sammy really likes both his teachers.  I was impressed with them too, and the whole program.  There are 2 teachers for his class of 6 and there are about 5 other classes going on at the same time.  And there are lifeguards sitting on chairs everywhere, even one on the edge of the water where the kids in Sammy's class wait their turn to practice with the teacher.  I felt that Sammy was so safe being in the water without me!
 Here he is learning to float on his back.  When I try to get him to do it with me he always struggles off of being on his back.  That teacher must be whispering something extra special in his little ear!
 I LOVE how looks so HAPPY in all these pictures, and it is so fun for me to sit poolside and watch him enjoying himself so much!  He has this smile on his face the entire 40 min. class!
