Summer Stuff

I'm putting the contents of several posts into one post because I've been having a hard time finding the time to blog lately. So this is sort of like an "all in one special", you get more for your money that way anyway.

A few weeks ago we went to the Cleveland Zoo, mainly to see the dinosaurs. Karilyn loved them!

Heidi was absolutely terrified of them. She kept saying "Go back, go back!" But then when we were done she kept asking to see them again. Hum...two year olds...?

We couldn't resist pretending to feed Diana to one of the dinosaurs, please don't call CPS.

Our sweet little Diana Rose turned 1 month old! We're enjoying her so much, right down to her cute little toes and button nose.

Last week we went to Tuscora Park in New Philly. We had a blast riding the rides and pretty much had the place to ourselves.

It was Heidi's first time to miniature golf, although I'm not really sure she understood the concept. It's a wonder none of us got hurt the way she was golfing...

Our sweeties on the 4Th

Karilyn has reached two major milestones!

She has learned to tie her shoes and...

She can swim on her very own. I'm very excited about this and so proud. Heidi is excited about it too, so excited if fact, that she wanted to take swim lessons too.

This is the before picture...

She did manage to get her toes a little bit wet, but that's about it. She wanted nothing to do with the teachers. Perhaps we'll try when she's a bit older.

And finally, here is a picture of Karilyn at her tennis class, which she loves.

What a bargain! I love the summer compilation!

My baby is getting SO BIG! She is SO SWEET. I wish I could get my hands on her right now.

I love the photo of feeding Diana to the dinosaur and Heidi striking a pose at the pool. Hilarious!

That picture of Karilyn and me running away from the T-rex turned out pretty good.

I laughed so hard at the picture of you guys feeding Diana to the dinosaur. So hilarious! I love to hear all the things you guys are up to. And Karilyn is getting so big! Wait, so is Heidi! Congrats on the swimming. I'm really hoping our kids join swim team--I have so many fond memories of cheering for Ken, I want to repeat them for our kids.
