2 birds...dead.

This past week was a busy one. We didn't get to see much of each other. So, Luke and I talked about doing something special for Oliver since his parents were both MIA for the week. Along with that, my nephews were starved to come hang out with us. I mentioned to them a few weeks ago that I would take them swimming some time. Finally after 3 weeks of asking, we killed 2 birds with one stone and went swimming with Oliver and Aiden & Andrew (we also invited Aaron, but sadly, he couldn't come).

I also wanted to try out my waterproof camera that I got back on December...Dare I say 3 birds?

So, we rode down the big slide...many many times. The boys weren't tall enough so someone had to go with them and we really didn't mind as you can see.

 This one is my favorite. I snapped this right as we were landing in the water.

We also played a little with the camera. Andrews eyes were fire red by the end of the night. I wonder why...

We swam/walked around and around the lazy river. By the end of the night my feet felt like they had blisters...don't worry, they didn't

I had so much fun with all these boys. 

Our friends Bob and "Bobwy" (that's what Oliver calls Aubry) joined in on the fun a little later.

Afterwards, we had to have some ice cream so we took the kids to Arctic Circle. Aiden and Oliver settled for chocolate ice cream with Oreos, Andrew wanted a chocolate topper and we all shared a huge pile of fries. 

We wish summer were here so we could do this exact thing and not be freezing in our wet clothes and 30 degree weather.
