Fun Stuff in July...

Swim Lessons...this is Reese on her first day...awaiting our session.  Ha.  So serious.  She was not too sure about everything, but eager to get in the water!!!  She is basically a fish.

She is taking lessons @ the Swim Ranch in Fayetteville.  This is her teacher Mrs. Virginia.  She is great and Reese loves her.  This place is beautiful, I have really enjoyed taking Reese each day this week.  Tomorrow, Daddy will get his turn getting in the water with Reese at swim lessons.  I will be sitting in the sun, trying to catch a tan while watching.  That is the plan.

Monday our sweet friends Ryan and Rachel Blackwell had their 1st baby.  
Brady Ryan Blackwell.   It was so fun to go and hold him and anticipate holding our own in just 4 short months...16 weeks!  Ryan, Nick and another guy named Bode grew up together and were really good friends from Kindergarden to 12th grade.  Well, Bode had a son several months ago.  Ryan just had a son on Monday and we will be having a son in Nov.  Ha.  Perhaps these 3 guys will be best friends too?  Fun to think about!

We had our small group over Wednesday night.  We played catch phrase and had a great time! Thanks guys for coming and for those who couldn't were missed.

Last Sunday night the Pinnacle campus had a family night @ the Springdale Aquatic Center.  It was really fun but I was freezing.  Nick did most of the swimming with Reese.

Our good friends from Dallas came up for a visit several weeks ago.  
Ben, Jen, Kingston and Kennedy Hangartner.  
Thanks guys for coming!!! We had so much fun!
(OK, you other Dallas friends...we are awaiting your visit.  
You are always welcome in our home.  Come see us!!!)

We took them to the creek behind the Church at Pinnacle Hills.  Usually we just put our feet in, but Ben said that he was thinking about getting in.  He did!  It was freezing and Kingston and Reese joined him.  We had lots of fun.  It was beautiful.

Several weeks ago we met our friends Serenity, Ashlyn and Kerrington @ the Splashpark in Rogers for a little playdate.  This was Reese's 1st splashpark adventure, she loved it.  
Thanks guys, we must do it again!
