Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

First summer swim

These are the days I look forward to all year! Ok, I am a fall/winter person... cooler weather, pumpkins, fall clothes, football, Thanksgiving, my two girls birthdays and of course Christmas.... however, the one thing that makes summer bearable for me are the wonderful Sunday afternoons we spend at my parents pool. Cook-outs, watermelon, my dads unbelievably good homemade ice cream and swimming all afternoon! It's even more fun when my brother is in town and somehow or other a giant water balloon or water gun fight ensues!

We had our first Sunday afternoon swim this past weekend and as always it was so much fun! The water was cold but that did not stop our little waterbug Anna from swimming for a couple of hours! Of course our little sleeper Serene took a nap in the shade with her Nana!

The day ended with Anna getting the ride of her life! Her Pop took her for a ride thru the neighborhood in his vintage Mercedes Benz and since she is technically by the state of Texas tall enough not to HAVE to have a car seat, she was able to ride with only a seat belt. Boy was she feeling like a pretty grown up girl!! Her ride ended with Pop letting her stand out the sunroof while they drove up the driveway! What a thrill for a 3 year old!

I love these days!!
