Grandma got us some new sandals to wear around the pool and the back yard. They're flip-flops with caterpillars on them. They're kind of tricky to keep on, but we're trying.
Staying awake during our snack was kind of tricky too. We discovered that if we don't let ourselves sit for too long, the problem goes away. So we went back in the pool as soon as we finished.
Apparently 6:30am is too early to get in the pool. Just look at it though. It's so hard to wait.
So instead of swimming, we did some jumping with Kinsey . . .
. . . somersaulting on Mindy's bed. Mindy is the dog.
And of course, more jumping.
Even though it seemed like it took forever to get to our plane, it was well worth the wait. We definitely enjoyed the suckers as we began to taxi and eventually take off.
We were dutiful passengers and read through the safety instructions provided in our seat pocket.
It was all very exciting. Airplanes are awesome.
The in-flight movie was Baby McDonald or "Old McDonald" as we like to call it.
Don't let this picture fool you. Daddy is fast with a camera. This lasted less than a minute or two.
When we finally landed, we stopped on our way to baggage claim to watch a few more airplanes . . .
. . . and then GRANDMA!!
. . . can be an adventure. We drove to a huge parking lot and waited . . .
. . . for bus. We took the bus to the airport where . . .
. . . we had to take off our shoes. Really? Take off our shoes inside the airport? Apparently it's required to get through security. We obliged.
But our adventure didn't end there. We discovered the floors move at the airport, a little unsettling.
After what seemed like waiting forever, it was finally our turn to get on the plane. We handed over our tickets, headed down the jet-way and found our seats.
We visited Grandma and Bumpa's today before leaving for Texas tomorrow. We brought the slip n slide with us. It was pretty awesome.
It was almost 90 again today so the cold water felt pretty good . . .
. . . at least for a little while, then we just got cold.
We had our final swimming lesson for a little while. We had a great time learning how to float on our backs, comfortably . . .
. . . hold our breath, and blow bubbles . . .
. . . "save" our instructor, Ms. Barb . . .
. . . and go for a boat ride. OK, there's not much to learn there, but it sure was fun.
Today was our last day of school. But before leaving . . .
. . . we had to say goodbye to the baby chicks Daisy and Theodore. But before the goodbyes . . .
. . . we had to eat some ice cream. Chocolate ice cream. But before our frozen snack . . .
. . . we sang songs with all our friends to everyone's family.

We recently had our last Highland ECFE class, maybe forever. Mommy asked us what we wanted to get our teacher, Teacher Tom, as a thank you gift. With little hesitation, we said, "Pickles."
We're pretty sure he liked them.
You see, every class, before we have our snack, he says we're gonna have pickles for a snack because he loves pickles. Well Tom, we called your bluff. Enjoy the pickles.
Daddy bought a bike trailer. It's about the most awesome thing ever. We've been going on lots of rides lately. We've been to the Y, preschool and a simple ride through the neighborhood.
Daddy keeps saying it's really hilly, but we don't notice it. We do our part from the trailer yelling, "GO DADDY GO DADDY GO!!" Or, "YOU CAN DO IT DADDY!!"
