Can't believe he is 6!!!

Birthday Presents
Hewitt was such a trooper
We had to move on his birthday
Hewitt is one of the sweetest, most passionate kids I have ever met,
not to mention very very smart.
Love him, can't believe he is 6.

4th of July
We spent the 4th with My Aunt Kris and my cousins. We had so much fun swimming and doing fireworks. These are my festive homemade oreo's that me and Linford made.

Linford is actually a really big help in the kitchen. He actually helps when he's in the kitchen with me. He always tells me he wants to be a chef.

Swimming has been such a MAJOR part of our lives this summer.
We swim atleast once a day 5 days a week.

Harper is our little fish.
Its a little scary at times how confident he is.
He recently taught himself how to swim and
it is the cutest, most impressive, funny thing to watch.
I get comments on him from mulitple people everytime we are at the pool.
"WOW, how old is he?"
"He's quite the dare devil isn't he?"
"He's only 2?!?!"
He LOVES the water.

Movies on Monsoon days

Movie nights on the weekends.
My friend does this with her kids and my kids think it is the COOLEST thing ever.
Love my kids.
Love the Summer.
