Day at the Beach

Our summer has been fun so far! We have experienced plenty of heat and humidity to go around. I personally have spent lots of time in my car, traveling all over my area. In 6 weeks, I put nearly 5,000 miles on my car. Luckily right now, I have been able to stay in my office more trying to get some training in on some software and other things. Aside from that, we have had a very busy tropical season thus far...Hurricane Irene and a few others that never made landfall but were close. And, we've had our fair share of tropical storms roll through. Again, we have been lucky not to have too much affect from most of them. But, it does keep us on our toes! The biggest news around here right now is that Rachel got called into the Young Women's presidency as 2nd counselor. Also, her baby bump is now showing, Sarah is walking and starting to copycat lots of things like actions and faces, and Kelly is still bent on naming the new baby Snow White no matter what happens. Parker is potty training and doing pretty well as long as he doesn't have any pants on...he does even better when he doesn't wear any underwear. He gets swedish fish every time he goes on the potty, and he gets the most excited when he goes and gets to try staying dry while wearing underwear. He got so excited the other morning that he went in by himself after crying for a bit about not wearing any underwear. He went potty all by himself. We were super excited and congratulated him for doing it and told him he would get his swedish fish...Parker squealed in excitement and immediately after being told he would get his swedish fish, he shrieked, "And I get to wear underpants now!" It was pretty cute! Well, we've been to the beach a couple of times now. So, the next posts are going to be some pictures of taking the kids there. Sarah really liked the sand and Kelly and Parker really liked sitting in the small waves. We are excited to go again! Enjoy the pictures!
