Summer Hill Block Party - we had so much fun with all of our neighbors at the block party. There was face painting, a balloon artist and a DJ!
The Pools - We have been spending lots and lots of time at Summer Hill Swim Club and Hillendale. We love being at HCC with Mason, Preslee and Finley. The kids are little fishies. Isabella now puts her head under water and can kick from one end of the pool to the other using a kick board. She also makes me so proud when she goes right up to other kids at the pool and asks them to play. She is always "making new friends." Alex amazes me daily. He can dive. He does front flips off the diving board. When I asked him who taught him that one, he said, "Griff asked if I could flip and I said I don't know. Let me try! And I can!" This summer he also swam for the 6-0 Hillendale Hurricanes. He has quite a collection of ribbons from his freestyle, backstroke, and breast stroke heats. He also won rookie of the year! Zachary loves the water, just like his brother and sister. He loves to sit and splash in the fountains. Mommy and Daddy are also enjoying the Happy Hours at the pools with their friends too.
The Beach - We have already been to the beach three times this summer. Nana and Pop Pop just bought a condo on the beach! It is perfect for the kids, especially Zachary. When it is too hot out, I can sit up on the deck and still feel like I am on the beach! We have loved being at the beach with our families and friends. The kids have played in the ocean, built forts out of boogie boards, umbrellas and towels, had sleepovers at Grandma and Pop's with Jake, Sophie and Luke, visited Samantha and Eva in Bethany, gone to Ava's birthday bash on the beach, gotten "tattoos" at Fish Tales and treats at Candy Kitchen, and Mommy's favorite - stayed on the beach late in the evening. Mommy and Zachary have even watched the sun rise over the ocean.
Stay tuned for Summer 2012- Part 2!
