My children lived in the pool this year. Starting out with no experience in the water, they quickly transformed into little fishies. We got some good use out of the pool and sadly that season is officially over. A while back we had a big family gathering with all the cousins and it was such a good time.

They played the family favorite, “toothpick game”, a diving board show, and a gathering is never complete without catapulting one another into the air. Even the little kids get in on this. So much fun – Hallie notes that her favorite thing is to have cousins come over and swim.

And a special birthday shout out to the world’s best only sister…

Happy Birthday!
