Our Recient Adventures

Dan and I finally got to go to the PIMA County Fair for the first time since the day we met 4 years ago. It was fun to go back with the same friends and our kiddos. Landon loved the petting zoo. The little goats were just his size.

This past weekend we had BEAUTIFUL weather. The Hoefferle's took advantage of it and had a picnic at Agua Caliente.

Landon with his cousins Amy and Tyler.

Have you noticed that babies get by with looking super adorable in situations were adults wouldn't.

For example a super messy face during meal time.

And this CRAZY bedhead. Love it.

Landon's New Trick

Last night Grandma Tidwell helped Landon learn to clap his hands. This morning he still remembers how to do it. He is seriously growing up too fast.

Swimming Lessons!!!

Exciting! Here is the schedule and pricing for my swimming lessons this summer. Each class will be a private 30 minute lesson, usually between 8 am and 12 pm. I am offering a $10 Sibling Discount for the sibling's full session.

My idea for the mom and baby classes is for a group to show up, preferably three moms and their weee-ones (but we can figure this out as we go), ages between 6 and 18 months.

I prefer teaching children ages 2-7 years old.

The super week is to either take a break, or a good time to master some skills!

If you have any questions about the schedule or pricing, and to sign up, e-mail me at

Summer Lovin'

You all know that I LOVE SUMMER!! I love the feeling of the warm summer sun on my skin and if I could I would totally live in a pool. Well this summer is going to be extra special because we have our very own pool! As much of a PAIN as it has been to own a pool, I think summer time is going to make it sooooo worth it!

When we were in contract to buy our house the pool pump burned out. And as new owners of a foreclosed home replacing the pool pump was not at the top of our to do list. After the blessing of tons of rain our pool turned green. And not just kinda green it turned a beautiful shade of emerald green.

SICK!!! With warm weather quickly approaching we decided we should probably start putting the pool at the top of our to do list. We replaced the pump and I tried my best to care for it. I got it to this point and decided we need some professional help.

And now it looks like this!!! It still isn't perfect but it is getting there. Isn't it beautiful? I'm tempted every day to jump in but it's still FREEZING!!

This summer I am going to be teaching swimming lessons and I'm really excited about it. I have been brainstorming all the details the past few days and I should have it all planned out by the end of the week. Let me know if you want more details.

And now for an update on our favorite lil' buddy! He is growing up too fast. This morning at breakfast he helped me put the spoon in his mouth. He would smile every time with a mouth full of food. It was adorable how proud he was!! He has a new smile where he shows off ALL of his gums (still no teeth but his gums are getting bumpy). It's really funny!

He hasn't started to crawl but he is an expert roller. He also LOVES to walk around holding our hands. He has pulled himself up on furniture a few times. We keep joking that he is going to walk before he crawls.

This picture is currently our favorite! We love the faux hawk. Doesnt he look so grown up? We just love our little buddy boy!

While Daddy Works.

This post is especially for Dan. He requested a new post with new pictures to make his work day extra special. Of course Landon was happy to strike a pose for Daddy.

This is Landon's new trick...
He loves to stand and with Mommy's assistance he is getting pretty good keeping his balance with the help of furniture. We wish he would learn to love practicing to crawl as much as he loves to practice standing and walking. Don't you just LOVE chubby baby legs and bum in tight jammies.

Landon wanted to say "HI DADA!!"

Dan has also been requesting that I post before and after pictures of our house and pool. I was really bad at taking before and after pictures. So finally after 6 months after moving in, here is what I could come up with (more pics of the rest of our house and pool will be coming as soon as i can find them).

And finally I post this pic just because it makes me SMILE!!
Dan/Daddy we miss you while you work.
