Isaac enjoys a little R & R poolside. Maybe we should call HIM the "Big Easy!"
Believe it or not, Lainie found the exact flower used on "Horton Hears a Who!" Ironically she found it in the front yard of the local library. If there is a flower anywhere remotely nearby, Alaina will find it. Brinley soon found another and the search for little "who's" was on! Dr. Seuss would've been so proud.
Classic Brinley. She can get that swimming suit on in 6.3 seconds when she hears that we’re going to the pool.
Brinley is fearless when Daddy is around to catch her. She will swim laps around the pool alone with floaties on her arms, and is currently learning to blow bubbles out of her nose. She refers to herself as the "purple ballerina ducky" while in the water. I proposed that maybe she could be the "purple princess ballerina ducky" but she shot me down. Apparently water fowl, even colorful dancing ones, are not allowed into the circles of nobility.
We've been slowly letting the air out of Lainie's floatie-sleeves and she quickly makes up for it with extra paddling to stay above water. Is that ethical? Either way, she's learning to swim.

We have had some requests for more pictures of Isaac, the beloved boy. I say beloved because I don't think there has ever been a little brother more adored by his sisters (and parents). Yes, we suppose it is arguable, but we won't waiver. The girls have yet to utter a negative comment about this angel boy coming into our family and have been VERY patient and helpful.
