Swimming Lessons

Maddux and Paisley took swimming lessons together this year. The first 3 days were basically a cry fest. But, miraculously on day 4, both were happy and did awesome the rest of the time! Ms. Pam really knows what she is doing and hopefully now our kids will both be little fishies in the water.

Maddux's favorite thing to do in the lessons is to jump off the side and swim to the edge by himself.

I'm a bit behind on this because Reese has been walking since right after her birthday. Just last week she gave up crawling completely and now walks everywhere.

This first video was when she was first figuring the walking thing out. In the second one, she is definitely more confident. :)

Date Night

In the last year, I cannot think of a single time that Maddux and I have spent time together, just the two of us. So, I took advantage of this Mother Son Date Night at Chik-Fil-a. I LOVE Chik-fila. Their food is ok (definitely better than most other fast food places though), but I mostly love that it's so kid friendly and the employees are SO awesome.

So, to start our date off, we got to have a little carriage ride behind a big white horse. Maddux was SO excited. I think he felt sooo special! We had a little table for two with a server and everything.
Dessert included...
Craft table...The kids were supposed to make this hanging heart for their Mom's that said, "#1 MOM" However, Maddux insisted it would be for Daddy, so we left the "MOM" part off. ;)
They even had a relaxing corner set up for moms to get a chair massage while the kids played.

It was an awesome night and I loved spending time with my little bud!

We threw her a balloon themed party last night and I think she loved it!
