I have to admit that I have three children, the one I married and two I gave birth to! No offense to my wonderful Mother-in-Law, but there are certainly times when I think that I have a grown child on my hands... like when he buys the children a "Slip-n-Slide" and then proceeds to enjoy it more than they do!
My only concern is that we're going to end up in the hospital emergency room if he keeps on going the way he was in these pictures.

We decided to spend Saturday night in D.C. so we could rest up after a long day of traveling and visiting and so we could enjoy some pool time.
Pat and I bought the kids so floaters on Friday so they could be more confident in the pool and it certainly did give them great confidence... I have two water babies on my hands (they are Pat's children, you know!).
Pat went upstairs to get the camera this morning because the water was too cold for him to enjoy this morning... it was after we were in the pool for about 45 minutes and the kiddies were wearing down quickly.
This is the only reason you don't see excited faces in every shot...
We met our friend, Michelle, up in Washington, D.C., this weekend and had a blast visiting the National History Museum. She was visiting a friend for the July 4th weekend and we were able to get together for a few hours on Saturday.
Michelle lives in Northwest Arkansas and is one of the wonderful women I'm lucky enough to call my friend. It was great to see her so happy and close by... and hope that the next time she comes to visit we can get her down here to our neck of the woods for a wine tour!
Here are a few pictures we took in the Butterfly Garden at the National History Museum... I didn't take my camera out before that because I was spending time with my dear friend.
The only regret I have is I didn't get a picture of us together... but I will do that the next time she comes to visit.
P.S. The first picture is of a butterfly that landed on Pat's back right after we entered the garden and I had to pry him off before we left... I think Pat found a new friend.
