Golf

I decided to surprise Ben and take him golfing after our morning on the river with the boys.


Don't I look like a professional?

River

Ben and I took the boys to the river to raft down and then when we got to the end they decided they wanted to get a little wet.

Gigi's Birthday


For Gigi's birthday party we all got together at Tim and Liza's house.  We had a good lunch and the boys had fun playing in the pool.


Kyler forgot his swimsuit but it didn't slow him down at all.



Gigi got a little help blowing out her candles.

And a lot of help eating it.


Bradley is so sweet he was sharing his watch with the little boys.

ISR

Bradley, Kyler, and Cooper all went to ISR swim lessons this summer.  They learned to float on their backs and to do a little swimming.  Bradley could already swim but he enjoyed learning to float and now he can swim as far as he wants to because he knows how to stop and rest when he gets tired.  Kyler did a great job floating but he never wants to turn over and swim so he just gets in his float and kicks to get where he wants to go.  He refuses to wear a life jacket in the pool and he jumps off the diving board just like the big kids!  Cooper can float and swim short distances but he doesn't really like to do it.  When Mama and Mamaw are not around and it's just Ash he does it well.

Hollywild Zoo

I took Bradley, Kyler, and Cooper to Hollywild Zoo.  They had a great time running around and feeding the animals.

Bradley got to get up close with a peacock.

Cooper had fun watching the bears.

Kyler enjoyed yelling at all of the animals.

They all had fun feeding the goats their bottles.

Cooper made friends with the huge cow!

St. Augustine

Ben and I took the boys to St. Augustine for vacation.  Everyone had a great time and it was nice to just relax for a few days.

Bradley started the relaxing as soon as we got there... on the train we toured the city on.

Ashley, Bradley, and Kyler in front of a water wheel.

Sitting on the rock wall beside the Castillo de San Marcos.

Kyler trying to climb down the rock wall.

Bradley trying to ride one of the cannons at the Castillo de San Marcos.

Kyler, who is always daring, sticking his head in the cannon.

Of course they have to climb on EVERYTHING!

Bradley acting silly.

Kyler playing in the garden at the huge cross in downtown St. Augustine.

Ben and Kyler playing at the pool.

Ben and Ash under the love tree... they say if you kiss standing under it you will be together forever... we'll see!

Kyler knows where the ball is supposed to go.
Bradley was hitting the ball like it was a baseball.  He hit Ben in the leg and almost took my head off!

Kyler tried to go in after his ball.

The boys sitting on the bed in the house made from a Redwood tree log... the only house that is smaller than ours (only 400 sq. feet).

Riding the merry-go-round where there are horses with real horse hair tails.

Bradley on his horse.

What a great swimmer... too bad the water is less than a foot deep.

Bradley touching a sting ray at the Jacksonville Zoo.

Infant Swim Resource

Bradley and Kyler are about to start their swim lessons so I'll be sure to post some pictures of them... this is a clip about the swim lessons they are doing... for anyone with kids.

Papa and Gigi's

Kyler enjoyed climbing all over everything while we were playing at Gigi and Papa's.


Even the toys that were under the house.
