Summer Time Fun

Here's a few photos of our past couple of days. We had a playdate with 2 Fuller families that live in the area. Rebecca N. came over with Isaac, Peter, and Katie, and Sarah R. brought her 3 kiddos, David, Emma, and Katie Beth.

Boy, Owen was not used to not being the oldest, but he hung in there. Thanks Isaac and Katie Beth for your patience. :)

The Arnolds (who now feel WAY behind in their childbearing) have been spending a lot of time at the pool and the park. Owen decided today that he needs to wear a towel around his waist too, so that's the bathroom hand towel. One day when he's a huge teenager, I'll laugh thinking that the hand towel used to fit around his waist. We're striking Owen's favorite pose, of course.

Cherry face pictures are from swimming with Sarah and Rob and the kiddos this afternoon. Owen is turning into quite the fish. Today, he gladly accepted instruction from Katie Beth on how to do laps around the pool holding onto the edge. A little scary for Mommy, but he did it! Same for climbing up the big twister at the park. Scary, but he did it!

Today's number of asking for Owen over and over: down to approximately 100. I guess I need to change his clothes somewhere else because that's usually where we derail. We normally sit on his rug and EVERY time we do now he lays down and says "owen night night." Over and over.

And every time we go to the pool and every time we go to sleep:
"Grammy home?"
"Yes Ryan, Grammy is at home."
"Cody home?"
"Yes Ryan, Cody is at home."
Same thing with relatives and every 3-4 people he sticks in another:
"Owen home?"
"Yes Ryan, Owen is at home with his mommy and Daddy."
"Yeah, Owen."

I think it's funny because he sees so many other kids on such a more regular basis and NEVER asks about anyone but Owen. 2nd generation of a lasting friendship...

I'm so glad you guys are already plugged in with some friends for you and for O-man. And I love you blogging regularly!

It is great to hear from you, and I am excited you are a blogger, too. It looks like you are doing well. You have a good looking family. Looking forward to keeping in touch. Kaylee

I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate your blog. Dad and I just got back from watching the fireworks over the East River in New York and came back to the hotel and went straight to the computer.

Believe it or not, Owen has already changed and grown so much in just two short weeks. I'm sure I will say that over and over during the next year.

You have always had the gift of gab, but that has parlayed into blogging, as well.

I am excited for you all to have started another new chapter to your life. The Marie Antoinette is lucky to have you!
