Skiing with the Colemans


Brandon and Stef invited us to go water skiing and of course we said yes. It has been since Megan was born that either of us has gone so we were excited to get the opportunity. I got right up and so did Brian. I guess it's like riding a bike, you never forget how. Megan was a little unsure about the boat ride but Ashlyn loved it.
We tried the life vests on the night before to make sure they fit. The girls wouldn't take them off. They just walked around the house that night ready for a flood.
Ashlyn really enjoyed sitting in the tube. I think she liked the slow rhythm of the waves hitting it.

Do you think she'll be ok? She was wearing water wings, a life vest and was in a tube. We figured she was the safest of us all. She loved kicking herself around in the tube.

Poor Stef was about a month away from having a baby so she didn't get to ski. This is Kenny her and Ashlyn enjoying the water. The water was the perfect temperature that day. I think Ashlyn and Megan could have stayed in it for hours. Thanks Colemans!

Megan's 4th Birthday


I can't believe that Megan is 4 now. Boy has time flown. She has really matured a lot this year. We love her so much and are so glad she is a part of our family. She is already talking about her birthday next year and how she will be able to go to kindergarten when she is 5. Happy Birthday Megan!
I love these two pictures because of her smiles. I see pure excitement in these silly grins. You can tell she got exactly what she wanted.

Camping with Dad


We haven't gone camping since we had kids, so Megan hasn't been exposed to camping much. We decided that it might be fun to have Brian and Megan camp in the back yard. She thoroughly enjoyed herself. As Brian was setting everything up, she kept asking "so, what do we do next". It was pretty funny. They had a good time, but Brian brought her in in the middle of the night because he was so uncomfortable. Maybe they'll have to use the trampoline next time.
Setting up the tent.
Can you tell she was excited?

All set for the evening.

More swimming lessons


Boy am I a slacker. I can't believe it has been so long since I posted. Megan also took swimming lessons at Lakeview Pool. Megan's teacher was Danielle and I absolutely loved her. Megan is a little leery of going under water. By the end of the two weeks, she had gone under a number of times. Danielle pushed her in the areas that she needed work in and I really liked that.
Here they are practicing their kicks.
Those kids never wanted to stay in the pool. It was pretty cold since the lessons were at 9:00 in the morning. Megan was a good sport. We will be back for sure next summer.
