Kevin took the girls to Peppersauce Cave this morning to go spelunking, with Duane and two of his kiddos too.  The dads were a little worried how the kiddos would do with having to crawl through a small hole and then rely on headlamps and flashlights to see anything...but it turns out the kids had a GREAT time and they spent WAY longer in the cave than they thought they would.
I'm so glad the girls have a daddy who enjoys doing all sorts of fun things with them.
One day Barrett will be old enough to join in too!!

..::Circus Circus::..

The circus is in town!
We took the girls tonight and we had a blast!
I haven't been since I was a kid so it was really fun to take my own kids!
I think Kevin and I enjoyed it as much as the girls did!
(we left Barrett at home with a babysitter since it was past his bedtime)

S-U-M-M-E-R = Swim Lessons

It's that time of year again!
When we spend soooo much time at the pool...the kiddos need to know how to swim!
It's a must.
We were supposed to do lessons the first two weeks of June, but Alexa breaking her arm kinda threw a bit of a wrench into that we pushed lessons back a couple weeks.
The first couple days, Alexa was pretty hesitant to use her arm but by the end of today (the 4th day), she was doing really well!  Next week will be even better, I'm sure of it!

..::So Long Rosa::..

Poor, poor Rosa.
She has been a good car for us.
She's been with us for a loooooong time.
We prayed all through dental school that she would just last until we were done.
That was THREE years ago!
Despite many things not working properly on her anymore and things literally falling apart on her...she has survived.
Until this weekend. :(
The A/C went out for the 2nd time in a month. That was the last straw.
She wasn't worth putting more money we went truck shopping!!!
Goodbye Rosa!
Meet Jorge.
The newest member of our family.
(pronounced hor-hay)
He's a long-anticipated, much dreamed-about addition to our family!!
And Kevin couldn't be happier!
We look forward to a long and happy, adventure-filled relationship!
