Summer at Last!

Sorry it's been a while since I updated the blog. Summer has finally arrived here in Colorado and we can't do anything but enjoy it! Jake started swimming lessons a few weeks ago. He was not sure what to think about it at first, but after lesson #2 yesterday, he is now fearless! He now jumps off of the side of the pool into the water (into my arms of course), and I also caught him going underwater after the older kids did it (scared me to death!) He's such a big boy now!

Father's day was fun too. Dad spent Saturday golfing and we spent the day at the pool as a family on Sunday. We got Dad some new grilling acutroment and a new grilling cook book (cliche I know, but that's what he wanted!). Now maybe dad can cook us some yummy food on the grill this summer!
Now that summer is here, Jake has a new favorite thing -- popsicles and ice cream! Can you blame him? Our block has been targeted by several ice cream trucks lately, so Jake now knows exactly what that music is and has an immediate Pavlovian reaction the instant he hears it. I distinctly remember the sheer joy of the ice cream truck growing up as well (of course, mom and dad "share" with Jake).

  1. Love the pics!!!! Swimming is so cool for kids. G is at the pool with Dora every day after work. Did you know: there isn't a single outdoor pool in Ireland... How sad is that...
