We be full swing

I realized that I haven't really posted anything about how fully into summer we are around here!  
So yes, we've been at the lake and on the boat.  And yes, we've been to the pool.  And yes, we put up the pool in our yard. And yes, We are so so so happy that it's HOT!

I was a little nervous about being able to enjoy summer with Charlie still being so tiny.  Savannah's first summer we didn't do much.  But she was born in May and much less drag aroundable. Charlie is catching on - even taking real length naps on the boat! No one really wants a caption for each picture, so just imagine - take it in - and know that we are LOVING IT!

Another great adventure in OK

We had another really good visit down in Oklahoma a couple weeks ago.  This was Charlie's first real vacation / long trip.  Weighing in at 6 months old - he did awesome.  He traveled well, slept okay, and was generally really enjoyable.  Savannah was, as always, a great trooper, a super helpful big sister, and we couldn't be more glad that she's ours!  

Travis' parents have some friends that were away for the week and they let us stay at their house...with a pool!!  Savannah was up by 6:30am every day and in the pool by 8am. She swam for at least 3 hours a day.  She is a fish! Charlie enjoyed pool side seating with the rest of the family. 

Here's the brothers working out together, pool side.  Like a resort or something. 

 Another great high light was getting to spend an evening at a friend's ranch.  We roasted hot dogs and s'mores, rode on horses, and played on their zip line!

And there was this. It was funny watching the girls learn how to use a gas pedal and a break for the first time. 

Savannah did not love the zip line at first.  I was lucky enough to get this picture of her scolding Travis for making her do it. She was pretty upset.  About an hour later she got over it and wanted to go again, with much more success.  

 Savannah's cousins, Lani and Maggie, are some of her favorite people to spend time with.  We are really blessed that we enjoy spending time with our family.  

Our last night there we went to a carnival.  I took Savannah on The Scrambler ride.  She was really excited and then suddenly buried her head in to me and begged for it to end.  Luckily those rides are really short, but it wasn't a great first experience on the big rides.  Whoops.
