Summer Fun Overload

 We kicked off our Summer with a beautiful day at the Tulsa Zoo.  We saw the new Sea Lion exhibit and an awesome show put on by these two elephants.  

 Grandma hosted a super fun Luau for our church play group friends.

 Darin and her adorable kids came.  Just about seventeen years ago she was playing in that back yard with me!  So crazy how time flies.  
 Enjoying some super cute cupcakes that Grandma made.

 Then in June we took a girls road trip to Dallas to visit our great friend Kasia and her cute family.  It was so wonderful to catch up after so many years.

 Ben worked really hard during the month of June at Summer School so when the movie "Brave" came out we went on a "Mommy and Ben" date  to see it and eat out at Braum's.  He was full of conversation until the movie started.  Then it was business... no talking.  I'm grateful his father taught him so well. 
 The very best part of our Summer has been spending so much time at our apartment pool.  I can't believe I spent the last ten years in Idaho where swimming outside almost everyday is absolutely unheard of.  Don't get me wrong, Idaho summers are the best, but I am sure loving my summer long tan. :) 

 And since this is the first Summer my kids have actually spent swimming, we thought they needed some lessons.   One day towards the end they were all put in this canoe and the teachers rocked it and filled it with water to sink it.  The kids didn't have to swim for their lives since they were all wearing jackets, but at least they had fun. 

 Lucky girl Maggie just started her very first dance class the other day.  It's a two week camp with a little performance at the end.  I'm sure there will be more pictures to come.
