Swim Swim Swim

This entire week all we have done is swim. We love to swim, we never want to get out. Bin slides down the slide over and over again and even goes under the water. He is getting very comfortable in the water. Oaxie thinks the water is too cold so she usually just walks around supervising!

Silly Llamas

This evening we went out to visit Will and Jennifer. We brought some of Bin's baby clothes over. Jennifer is pregnant with twin boys!!!! We can't wait for them to get here so we can play with them. Boy, their lives are about to drastically change! We had lots of fun tantalizing their cats, especially the big fat white one. He weighs over 20lbs!!! We got to go on a walk and see lots of moooo cows and llamas. Mrs. Jen helped us feed them. They are really silly looking, especially the one whose teeth were soooo big he never closed his mouth. Mr. Will let us play with his guitar and piano. Mommy was worried we were going to break all of his big boy toys! She can be really annoying some time, geeeez.

Summer Is Here!

It was very hot this weekend, perfect for swimming. Mommy and Daddy got our pool out from last year but it had some "blowing up issues." It must have had holes in it so not all of the pool would stay inflated. We are going to get a new one soon. We were so ready to jump in that we could not wait to get our bathing suits on.

Out at the Brazos

Tonight after Daddy got off work we went for a drive out on the River. We went to look for deer and we saw a few and a skunk too! Next time we go we are going to play in the water. We mostly threw rocks in the water and rode all around. I (Bin) like to drive so Daddy lets me steer sometimes. We looked off the top of a big cliff. It made Mommy very nervous. She did not let us stay up there long. She was on the look out for mountain lions. She is so silly!

New Braces

Oaxie lovin' on sweet Anna

We went to get Bin's new braces yesterday. We picked out camouflage braces but when you see them it is more like safari camo instead. I guess you would say safari camo, I don't really know.... but there is red in it. Anyways, I kind of like it and so does Bin. He is doing very good with them. Hopefully you can see them okay in the picture. We went to try and find some new shoes but could not find any cool ones in his size. We have limited resources around the Mineral Wells area, you know!:) By the way, thanks Miss Wendy for going with us yesterday. Mommy said that you probably won't do that again for a long while!!!!! She said that we worked you way to hard!

Bye Bye O'l Pine Tree

Donny working the crane

Look how high Daddy is....scary

Today Daddy brought his crane from the shop and cut down the old Pine tree in the front yard. It was really pretty pitiful. The middle part of the tree was dead and the top was still alive.... go figure. Mommy was worried it was going to fall on the house if we have to many more of those bad storms that came our way a few weeks ago. Our Great Grandmother, Otie, actually planted the little oak tree under the pine tree. It may be permanently small because it has grown under the pine tree for so long, but hopefully it will come around. Otie is actually what all the grand kids called her because no one could pronounce her real name, Oaxie. Which is where our little Oaxie got her name. This house was originally Jon's grandparents home and after they passed away and we moved to Mineral Wells we bought the house. It has been a continuous work in progress. We have lived here for 10 years and have never completely finished it. I just took a little walk down memory lane for those who read this that are not familiar with our story!:)
