Swimming Lessons

This week Presley started her swimming lessons. Paige's kids and Presley are learning together in Rex and Paige's pool. It has been so nice to just go over and have our private teacher show up. The first couple of days Presley was scared but did whatever Tyler (the teacher) told her to do. By Thursday she she couldn't wait for her turn in the pool. It's so funny because her and Landon both have this look on their faces like, " You want me to do what." They are all doing so well, Sydney has been so cute and so proud of herself that see is getting good at swimming. Tatum is also doing very well, she is so cute because she has a secret crush on the teacher and has a hard time concentrating on what he is telling her to do. We can't wait for next week to see what they learn.

Swing Time

So this weekend Dustin was visiting Home Depot and felt the need to get the family a swing. He enjoys working in the yard and after he is done, he likes to relax and sit back and enjoy his nice back yard. So I came home from work and he surprised me with a big comfy swing. It is actually nice to sit out and relax when the sun goes down and talk with him. Tonight Presley joined him and I was able to capture the moment.

Do you know the muffin man?

Tonight I made blueberry muffins and I put them out on the counter to cool off and sure enough, I came back to find Ms. Presley with one already in her little hands ready to eat. She had a lot of fun today with all the kids and grammy and papa. We took my dad out to eat for an early Fathers Day present since he will be out of town this weekend. Once again Presley and Landon took the cutest picture together.

Putting on a show at Nordstroms

So tonight we ran up to the mall. We were in Nordstrom's dressing room waiting for Dustin to try on some shorts and Presley was being so cute. She was looking at herself in the mirror, standing on the tailoring step moving her foot up and down going "1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,10". Then I would say, "You forgot 5," and she would say "SHHH" and then start over again. The girl helping us thought she was so cute and Presley was totally putting on a show for all of Nordstroms! It was a great night after a long day of work!

Big Mess

So a couple of weeks ago our hot water heater broke! We didn't know it had been leaking for over a week into a couple of the walls in the garage. We had no hot water for over four days, because Dustin ripped everything out for repairs. Good thing that my sweet sister Paige took us in and let us stay at her house while Dustin and a family friend fixed the walls and installed a new water heater. We had a lot of fun at Rex and Paige's house, and enjoyed our own wing of the house in their guest quarters! The kids had tons of fun playing all day and night long! We are very glad that we are back at home! Being out of the house for 4 days meant there was a lot of catching up to do! Not a fun mess, but things are back to normal and good now!
