We swam this morning and took afternoon naps. When Dylan got out of school, we went back to the pool. Needless to say, the babies were sleepy. I turned on Care Bears for them to watch on our computer in the bedroom, put the babies on the bed, and helped Trey make supper. (oh yeah, I said "help Trey make supper") How awesome is that? He grilled for supper and it was awesome! Anyways, back to the babies I left on my bed. I came in to check on them because it was so quiet. Quiet in my house means something very bad is happening. I was so surprised to see them snuggled up together watching the movie. Moments like these are few and far between and definitely priceless. The next time I came to check they were wrestling and Laiken ended up shoving Jack off the bed.

The pool is open and we have been swimming almost everyday since last thurs. It is awesome! I love it. The pool is perfect for Laiken and Jack. It has 4 half circles, one on each side, that are only a foot and 1/2 deep and wide enough that each little half circle is like a baby pool. They are probably there as a step to access the pool from every side, but they look like little baby pools to me, and work perfectly. We walk to and from the pool. It is great, we get a little exercise and a little sun every day. We are already starting to get dark. Unfortunately, standing in the pool most of the time we are there, and the walk there and back are all factors contributing to having a flip flop tan line again. I swore I wouldn't have one this year but seems unavoidable. Besides, it was still there a little from last year. Hard to get rid of. On one of our recent walks back from the pool Laiken picked up an earthworm and carried it all the way back to the apartment. She put it on all kinds of stuff on the way back and set it down and picked it up repeatedly. She even got upset once because she "broke" its head off. Lol. By the time we got home, he was limp and no longer moving. I convinced her he was sleeping and to leave him in the grass. Gross!

Last weekend we went to Greene Co. to visit Mimi and Paw Paw Colly (Ryan and Jody). They are our adopted Grandparents, Trey's aunt and uncle. They are very close to the kids. It was the first time we have been to see them since we moved to Louisiana. It was such a treat for the babies, because they got to stay outside all weekend. They wore barely any clothes the whole time and stayed so dirty. They loved it, I know. Kynnedi had a baby pool for them to swim in. We had not brought swim suits, so Laiken swam in her panties. Not too bad, but daddy was not pleased that Jack borrowed a pair of Kynnedi's potty training panties with pink lollipops and pink cup cakes on them. They were so cute on him. He looked so sweet. Mimi and Paw Paw Colly have goats too. The babies really enjoyed feeding the goats. It has been awhile since Laiken had seen them. She loves Mimi's goats. On Saturday night Trey made Crawfish and Shrimp Fettachini. It was a big hit. They were skeptical at first but once plates were being made, they were all really impressed with him. It was nice to cook for them for a change. We all had a really good weekend. We will be going back in June for Kynnedi's 2nd birthday. My, how they grow up so fast!
