Our little swimmer

We started Noah in swim lessons again, except this time mommy and daddy aren't in the pool with him - it's just him and his little class of 3 other kiddos and Miss Liz. This morning was his first time and he did GREAT. In fact, he did so good that they brought over a blue ribbon for him because he completed so many "preschool" water activities. Then an instructor had him and a little girl get out of the pool while ringing a cow bell. "Attention everyone!!!!" The girl shouted. She explained that Noah and this other little girl had done so well that they earned a ribbon - and everyone in the place hooted an hollered - and I got a little weepy I was so proud!

Needless to say, it was heartwarming and very cool.

We had more water fun at a community water park nearby. I have heard of the place but had never been - it was awesome! It was just mommy, daddy and Noah and we all had a great time.

Six Flags

We bought season passes to six flags this year and have already been many times - Jenny and I went last week with Noah and Faith and had a great time. I'll put a pic up from last year for reference :)

Fishing with grandpa

My parents live in a great community in Manteca that has a cool "lake" you can fish in. We decided to break in Noah's new fishing pole one sunny day. Unfortunately we got skunked (didn't catch anything for any of you non-fisher-people out there) but it was still memorable to have Noah's first fishing trip to be with grandpa Boonie.

Back to blogging

Since I started Facebooking, I have really neglected my precious blog. And to all my readers, I apologize. Recently I took a break from Facebook to see how much time I actually spent on it... the answer is: too much. So, I am probably going to stay off of it for the most part, and get back into blogging, and keeping up with all of the blogs I link to. I look forward to getting things back on track :)

Here a few pics from the last couple of months.

Our little guy is a big boy! Noah is fully potty trained and it really only took about THREE DAYS! (and some $$ for the toys we tacked on the wall)

Mommy and Me soccer

I don't know which face is more precious - Faith's, or the the way Darren is looking at her.
