Swimming Lessons

The boys and I had so much fun taking swimming lessons over the last few weeks!  Camden took the preschool class for 3-5 year olds and Coulton and I took the parent-tot class.  Both classes were held at the same time. 

Camden did a great job swimming!  His favorite thing to do is jump off the swimming blocks that the swim team uses at the deep end of the pool. 

Coulton did a great job too!  He was a little sad at first when we got into the water, but once he got used to it, he was splashing and kicking like a real swimmer! 

Here's Coulton practicing his new standing skills!  We took a few pictures before getting in the pool. 
It was so much fun to have swimming lessons together!  Calvin got to come watch us once and took Camden to one of his lessons when I was in Utah.  We can't wait for summer and all the swimming to come!

Day trip to South Carolina

We had a fun day one Friday a few weeks ago.  Calvin was going to be busy on Saturday, so we spent the day together.  We packed lunches and headed out for a hike.  We walked along the Haw River, which was really nice.  Camden learned some outdoors skills and practiced his climbing on this tree.  We marched around to the tune of "Follow Me, Boys!" playing on my phone.  It was a lot of fun.

After the hike, we started on a drive to a place in South Carolina where we stopped last year on our spring break trip.  We couldn't remember the name, but it was this farm where they grow peaches and pecans and had an old tractor museum.  We found it again-McLeod Farm.  Camden had so much fun with all of the antique tractors.  We also got a peach enchilada with vanilla ice cream and some pecan-sweet-potato bread; both were delicious! 

It was a fun day trip and great being able to spend time together with our family.

Camden and Coulton are buddies.  They love spending time together.  I know I'm behind, but here are some pictures, in no particular order, of my darling little boys having some fun together!

The boys love to take baths together.  We fill up the tub with bubbles and toys and they have a lot of fun.  When I take Coulton out to get his pajamas on and let Camden stay in for a few minutes longer, Camden says, "Hey, I need a friend in here still!"


Camden is so good at being a big brother.  He loves to help with Coulton.  Here he is helping feed Coulton his rice cereal and baby food.  Camden likes to mix the rice cereal and pour the baby food into a bowl.

For Valentine's Day, we sent some fun Valentine's packages.  The boys enjoyed helping me put them together.

We often walk over to the playground near our house.  The boys like to slide and swing together.  On this day, Camden picked his and Coulton's matching shirts to wear!


We stay busy with lots of chores to do around the house!  The boys like to play in the laundry basket while I fold the clothes. 

You can see Camden trying to help Coulton hold still and look at the camera :)

And finally...the boys like to ride around in the truck together in the back seat!  We often take drives as a family and look for new places to see. 

We truly love our boys and hope they continue to enjoy being together!  I will keep working on posting more regularly!
