We've had a whirlwind of exciting trips around here, getting in all the visiting we wanted to do before we're home bound with Little Boy.
(We've officially settled in now.)

We got to spend some time up at my folks, which included visits with my Grandparents, a church pot luck and a date night with Kyle. (We dressed up and went to one of the Wildfire restaurants and then made an ice cream stop. Oh, was it fun, and so delicious! Thank you babysitters and the "hotel" staff who helped to make the evening so delightful!)

We also did a bit of swimming.

Nana and Grandpa had everything ready with a special floaty seat.

Uncle Nate makes the transfer. When Alaina says his name, it sounds more like "Uncle Neck", but she definitely knows who she is talking about! And yes, it was a bit chilly getting in at first.

Alaina was hilarious in the pool. Every time one of the Uncles or Aunt Haley went underwater, she got this big eyed, open mouthed expression which plainly said "Where did they go?"

Another benefit of having a baby in the pool was how quiet and relaxing it was. Somehow after she went in for her nap things sort of erupted, and all these squirt guns appeared out of nowhere. Humm. There sure was a lot of laughter going with all that water though!

Yes, it was every bit as refreshing as it looks in the pictures! Fun times. :-)
