All four of us celebrate our birthdays in July.  In the last week Drew and I both had our birthdays.  I turned the big 3-0 and Drew turned 37.  We had a great week celebrating with friends and family.  Here are a few pics from the celebrations!

Beating the Heat

One of our favorite ways to beat the heat this summer has been hitting up the pool.  Our buddies the Smiths have a family pool that we have been making good use of this summer.  While the twins didn't necessarily learn how to swim at swim lessons earlier this year, they did get more comfortable with the water.  The like to jump off the side and have me catch them.  It's pretty adorable!!

Elson had taken off his swimsuit at some point!

Two Years Old

The twins turned two this past Saturday.  I can barely believe that two years have passed since I gave birth to these two little people.  They continue to amaze me everyday.

We started our day with traditional birthday pancakes.  Elson only ate the sprinkles off of his, but Emily devoured hers.  We played at the park and enjoyed lunch at Chick-Fa-La (the twins favorite lunch spot).  After naps, we got ready for the main event....the birthday party.  I decided to do this year's party at Gymboree.  The twins love it there and I was happy to not have the mess at my house.  We had such a good time at the party with most of our best buddies. It was truly a perfect day!



I love this picture....Emily is letting Max Henry know that she will take him down over that cupcake

Happy 4th of July

We spent the 4th of July hanging out with family and friends on Cross Lake.  It was a good time, but we didn't last long because Emily was in one of her moods.  Oh well....I guess that is life with two-year olds!

Last weekend our friends The Garons invited us to go out on their ski boat.  I wasn't sure how it would go with the twins, but I'm happy to report that they really loved it!  I was also pleased to see Drew's athletic side when he showed off his skills on the slalom ski.  A great time was had by all!!
