The neighborhood pools opened up this past Friday so Alicia, Tami, and I brought the kids to do a little swimming. It was a lot of fun and a lot to handle! Thankfully Selah slept most of the time! But two in water wings and one newborn at the pool is challenging! I was very thankful Nick was with Alicia and helped me out a ton by playing with Soren and Maeta.
Here is how I travel for an hour long pool trip or beach trip. Note: The baby isn't even in there, I am wearing her in the Bjorn.
1 infant car seat (which she slept in for most the time)
1 baby tent
1 lunch box with 2 lunches
2 swimming suits
2 sizes of diapers
4 water wings
3 pairs of sunglasses
(what else do you think we could possibly bring?)
Friday night Alicia and Nick called us all over for dinner. Here is my mom and sister loving on the two babies...
And the two babies smiling at their Papa!
The kids are really into putting on plays right now. Here they are bowing after performing Little Red Riding Hood
Do you think she is a mom and aunt??? A very good multi-tasker/ helper for a sister (me) who is a little overwhelmed at the moment!
Dustin worked all weekend so I called my mom to ask for some help with a little girl who is feeling the need to act out a bit since new baby sister has arrived. Maeta needed a little special date from her nana, so they went out Sat. morning together.
Selah turned 8 weeks
A little girl in a bonnet melts me!
Actually, this little girl always melts me!
Sunday and Monday we spent swimming at my parents house. Dustin thankfully got to join us for the end of the day on Sunday and Monday! Soren swam most of both days!
The kids entertaining their Great grandparents!
Maeta loved swimming too!
I loved this picture of Caleb who is now missing 3 front teeth!
Sam is so wonderful in playing with the kids all day long! I keep telling her, I will owe her big time when she has her own kids.
My beautiful mom!
Maeta thought my dad would be so sad if she didn't stay in the pool with him. So she kept checking to see if he needed her!
Thanks mom and dad for blessing us so much by opening your home up to us. We loved our weekend with you guys!
