Swim lessons, Fathers day, and a new Pool!

We have had a fantastic summer thus far. Edward started the summer with swim lesson, which he loved! He would grab his towel and head for the door each evening as swim lessons approached. He was really good about going under the water and jumping in the pool; however, he did not blow any bubbles. I think he was the only kid in the class who didn't figure that part out. We smiled, laughed, and had a great time swimming for the entire 45 minute lesson.
For Father's day, Edward and I made a card and a special lunch for Stephen. He had to work on Father's day, so that was a little bit of a bummer. While Stephen was at work we made a great dinner of pulled pork sandwiches and an amazing easy to make desert. (I will post the recipe for those interested) YUM!
Since Edward loved swimming so much, I went to Target and purchased a little back yard pool. I will say he would much rather throw rocks into the pool than get in and swim. I think he liked the big public pool because we were in there with him.

I am sure there are many more adventures to come this summer and I can't wait!
Also, I am planning to have another giveaway real soon... so stay tuned!

Hmmm...could that possibly be a baby bump at 19 weeks?? It's so tiny, I can't tell!!! You're adorable, Jules!

That's good that he likes swimming. And seriously, Julie, you barely look pregnant.
