Our Family...

Here are some recent pictures taken at the park. We've found some great parks here and Ben is having a lot of fun. We've been taking him swimming now that the pool is heated and he is such a strong swimmer! My goal is to see Ben swimming by the end of the summer. Right now he is just experimenting with putting his head under water, blowing bubbles, and doggie paddling while I support him. Its funny because he gets so excited while swimming that his mouth is wide open and he's just kicking and moving his arms as fast as he can. Its so funny and it reminds me of my childhood dog, Tiger, and his excitement to swim in our pool. LOL! He has so much energy and wants me to help him swim all over the pool and I don't know where he gets all his energy!

Ben has been asking "what's that?" all the time now and he repeats everything you say. We went to Walmart yesterday and the whole time we were going back and forth asking "what's that?" and answering each other. It was a lot of fun to see how happy it made him to play this game.

Ben loves to sing and will say "dance" and then start singing cuz he wants us to dance while he sings. It is so cute and you can't understand most of what he sings but he is super proud of himself. The other day he sang for a couple of us at a family party and after each song we would clap and cheer and he kept singing over and over so that we would cheer for him.

Wow, Benjamin is so grown up-and so cute! I'm impressed that Benjamin does so well in the water. Cali still won't put her face in and starts shaking if she thinks she may have to go under. Benjamin must have inherited his mom's water genes. We haven't seen you guys in too long. And you look great!!! Tell Ricky that Natalie and Mark (and Cali and Tacy) say hi.
