Gettin' a Kick Out of Soccer



Both Ella and Jack have been taking soccer this Spring. Jonathan took both kids to their respective soccer classes while I was away on a girls' weekend to Myrtle Beach. Thanks, Daddy! But, come on, there're no big, pink bows in soccer...

More Fun in the Pool





Papa got quite the arm and shoulders workout tossing the kids around the pool. Zane was content with just motoring around the pool, but the other big kids wouldn't leave Papa alone...."Papa, I want a twirl with a flip." In case you were wondering what Ella was doing in her jump, she wanted "to grab a cloud." She tried a few times.

A Day at the Beach





Despite Aunt Tracy's worries about getting sand in her new Odessey, we still made it to the beach one morning. Nothing beats the Gulf beaches. The water is so calm and beautiful. Jack's more comfortable in the water at the beach than at the pool.

Check Out Our Other Cute Nephews!





We spent the week in Florida with Aunt Tracy and her three boys--Jake, Zane, and Drew. Zane was the special birthday boy. We celebrated his third birthday with a "pool party".



Of course,Ella and Jack had to get in on the photo shoot, too.

Spring Break trip to Nonni and Papa's Florida Resort




We had some fun times morning, noon, and night in Nonni and Papa's pool. It took some creative coercion, but Jack was comfortable kicking around the pool with a ring by midweek. Ella is anxious to swim without her arm floaties, but still needs to learn how to use her arms to help keep her up in the water.

Jacob and Noah Visit



It rained the entire weekend, but we still had a good time when Uncle Chris, Aunt Chrissy, Jacob, and Noah came to visit. We hope to see them again soon--and hopefully get more pictures next time.
