fairy tale friends...

this week avi had 2 friends celebrate birthdays, both having cute princess parties.  unfortunately i was only able to stay at one of the parties & get pics, but they were all such cute princesses!  becks was such a great sport to tag along (even though i wouldn't let him dress up like a cowboy or a pirate~ in fear of scaring all the princesses)  jackie was so darling, thanking everyone over & over for coming to her party.  kelle dressing up as Cinderella just put the icing on the cake... forgive the pun:)  all the kids at with the party & just at the farm wanted to come say hello to "cinderella".  watch out disneyland theme park employee!  i am so glad that avi has such fun friends with sweet, patient parents:)  happy, happy birthday jackie & bella!

swimming is great...

this summer my kids both took swimming lessons with the amazing miss pam & miss kaylynn.  i would be totally understating things by saying they LOVED swimming & there teachers!  they are now both incredibly confident & capable in the water & wish they could be in the water all the time.  both of the "miss's" impacted my kids in such a positive way i can't even explain it.  we love them sooooo much!  thank you to the miss's & all of the life skills that they taught my little lovies.
