062016 – 062216: Little Swimmer and a visit to Louisiana

We shimmied on down to Louisiana to visit with Wesley’s dad for Father’s Day, and to get a little pool time in with Lucy. She’s almost 6 and it drives me bonkers that she can’t swim yet. But this week… We got it!


She’s finally figured out how to go under water and she’s been having a blast doing it! Wes and I couldn’t be more proud!


And our weekend of swimming wore out my kids like I’ve never seen. 


They were out about 15 minutes after we left. 

We had a blast visiting or family, and Lucy of course left them with drawings everywhere. 

Judah enjoyed the pool as well and started putting his head underwater before we left. He couldn’t have his sister outdo him. He’s only sorta competitive, haha!

Lucy made Wes the cutest little Father’s Day gift at church. My favorite? He’s not very good at…”he’s good at everything.”

This little guy took naps while we were down. Crazy! He never naps. Swimming is exhausting!

And of course we got ice cream. And we also got it everywhere. (At least Judah did. His hands, shirt, shorts, legs, face, hair, elbows, chair and mirror had some form of ice cream on them before we left.) 

A great trip and super productive as well! 

We are so proud of our little girl and her finally braving the waters.
