Minnie Mouse Photo Shoot

I took a few pictures to use for Mary Harper's birthday party invitation.  Here's what we came up with...completely last minute and thrown together.  She had fun prancing around the yard in her minnie outfit.  I think I for sure captured her personality!

Summer Fun

We have somehow managed to survive the first month of summer....with two more to go.  Here are lots of random moments of what's been going on around here.

 Love these Mickey readers we ordered from Scholastic!

Boating Fun

We spent the day out on the boat with some of the sweetest friends...
The Todd Family and The Hughes Family.  They were so kind to include us on their family day of fun on their fishing boat and pontoon boat.  The kids had a blast!  

Sweet girls: Mary Harper and Caroline

Swim Lessons

Both Greer and Mary Harper took swim lessons this summer.  There was not space for both of them at the same time, so they took during different weeks.  We took with Ms. Beth again.  She lives about five minutes from our house, so it works out great to get the kids there.  She is so wonderful with the children and had both of mine swimming and jumping off her diving board at the age of two.  Crazy!!  Mary Harper was so excited to be a part of this fun!  She was just like one of the big kids.  Beth said she was cheering on as well as telling others(who are older) what to do.  I was not at all surprised.  This girl is on fire!  Greer came in as a strong swimmer this year, but I do feel like it was a nice boost for his confidence since he always seems to be the youngest.

Donuts before Greer's last day at lessons!

Fearless and free!

kick, kick, kick!
