More pictures from this weekend. . . .

This weekend, after over three months in casts and splints, Evan was FINALLY able to get into the pool for the first time! As you can see, he LOVED it. . . .

He kept saying, "This is so fun!"

Okay, I know this is probably TMI, but I just had to share! We have been working on getting the boys potty trained and have done so successfully for the most part, but the boys just aren't interested in putting their poop in the potty. Yesterday, during our party, Lukas disappeared for about 10 minutes and then came running out onto the patio to inform us, excitedly, that he had put his poop in the potty upstairs and he wanted to show us. Richard went with him upstairs where Lukas proudly showed his daddy what he had done. . .leave it to Richard to document the occasion with a picture! Needless to say, we are proud of Lukas as well!!!

you have a beautiful family, they look so happy. As for Lukas' picture... keep it under lock and key until he brings his future wife home. Mom's have a special privelege ... they get to bring out pictures of their children's accomplishments from childhood when they are adults... lol
