After we left the hospital we took Mac to get a treat and some popsicles. The nurses said to watch him for the day because he would be a little wobbly on his feet. So we put him in one of those car shopping carts so that he wouldn't have to walk. He just was so busy though and kept getting out and being silly. At one point I took him up the baby isle just to keep the cart moving in hopes of keeping him in the cart. He of course saw something that caught his eye and climbed out as I was pushing him.
"Mom, what's that?"
"What does it look like silly, it's a plate, bowl, spoon, and fork." Just then I turn to look at him for a reaction and he is leaning in to me with his eyes closed and his lips puckered up waiting for a kiss. I gave him a kiss and then he whispers "I really love you mom." I was laughing so hard! What a ham! I'll take it any way I get it though! I don't care if it was the medicine talking! It was great!

Ryan did so well this year in the water. Every year she swims all day long, but this year she was not so...dare I say...CHICKEN. She did the slide, the tube, ski skimmer, and cliff jumping. It was really a lot of fun to have her at the lake. She has just grown up so much. I told her, maybe now that you have lost so many baby teeth you are not such a baby. Your big teeth must be helping you act so big! She liked that reasoning. I just adore this sweet girl!
Mac was a lot of fun at the lake too! He would ride the ski skimmer all day long if we let him. Although he didn't swim for nearly the length of time his sister did, he still swam hard. This little boy was great! He went on a hike and along the way the came across a ton of little frogs. Needless to say, he came back with seven of them. Aunt Lisa also made sure I checked his pockets too. I guess he was stuffing hand fulls of little frogs into his pockets! Oh this boy!!! I just love him to bits!
As for Jared and I, well we just are enjoying watching the kids have fun! We also managed some time on the wake board, air chair, tube, and cliff jumping, but the best part was just watching and enjoying the kids! We just feel really blessed to have been so spoiled this year!
