Daddy's back

We've been so busy enjoying James being home that I haven't update our blog much. here's some pics of Grandma and Pops Leon's recent visit. 

I don't have pics of our 4th of July surprise- Daddy's return! We'd been telling the kids that "Lord willing" Daddy would be home by the 4th of July. James found out his flight home would get in 1030 pm July 2nd- a little late for our crew to be out! Grandma and Pops Leon came to stay with the kids- I knew it would be hard enough for them to go to bed thinking that Daddy would get to town the next day. so we kept it a surprise. You should have seen the excited faces Friday morning when they saw Daddy. KG did see him middle of the night and C came in our room early in the morning. Our room was dark and he whispered "Mommy, who is in bed? :)

Once CE saw him, she did not want Daddy out of her sight. so nice to hear "Daddy, Daddy, Daddy"

Lake Pines Swim Club

Last year we went to Lake Pines Swim Club for the first time and had such a good time so this year we were really looking forward to our trip. Four families went with us and we had a great time!

Baby V napped in his carseat while the rest of the kids swam and swam!

Look at the pretty table Heather set up for lunch- love the quilt she made! 

Everyone worked up a good appetite with all the fun swimming!

One of the few times K and C were near us- they got their wristbands and took off around the lake!

Love our friends!

"Nakey baby" had fun too!
