24th of July party at Todd and Megans
Davin is a little nervous around water. He had his life jacket and goggles on and stayed in the shallow end near the edge the whole six hours. We did get him to try the slide one time but he said he did not like it. However this morning he said he wished he would have went down the slide more.
Rylie's finger tips were raw from getting in and out of the pool so many times. There was a fun slide that went into the pool and everyone spent hours going down it. She and Lexi had fun reuniting with 6 of the 11 cousins that were born the same year. Almost one a month!
Skylar spent six hours in her floaty only getting out to potty. She didn't even want to eat, all she wanted to do was swim. The big cousins got a little rowdy, Clark and Todd wrestled Doug into the pool (after a tough fight), Skylar was so concerned we had to try and convince her that Todd and Clark were not mean and that dad liked it. The rest of the day she went around telling everyone "Daddy likes it?!"
Davin caught this fish all by himself. Doug was helping the girls when Davin jumped up and said he had one. He jerked the pole and started reeling it in. That smile stayed with him all weekend. He was ready to move to Vernon so he could fish all day. I guess there are no questions about it, he is his fathers son.

Our camera broke so I am really struggling to get current pictures. This is current but just not the picture I was looking for. This is our little angel, she has not only everyone in our family wrapped around her finger but pretty much everyone she meets completely melts and is instantly under her spell. She is kind and friendly to everyone. She always has a story to tell and you may not understand every word but her expressions tell all. She loves to play dolls, dress-up, barbies , school, trucks, soccer and hide-n-seek.
Rylie loves soccer she plays forward, outside-mid, stopper and sweeper but playing defense is her favorite position. She had the opportunity to escort the Real team out on the field when they played Madrid. She got to see David Beckham up close, she thought that was pretty cool. Rylie is the one in the pink camo shorts.
Davin turned 5 this past May and was finaly old enough to play t-ball. He was on the New York Yankees! He loved playing and did really well for his first time. He was a bit frustrated with the t-ball rules. All he wanted to do was hit a double but in t-ball they make everyone just stop at first base no matter how far the ball goes! He loved playing first base, it did not matter that most of his teammates were out in the field picking flowers, he was always squatted down and ready!
