  8. I love how quick children are to embrace happiness! Where, along the way, does that ability to smile so easily get lost?

  9. So very fun and such happy (gorgeous!) babies :) I'm glad they're enjoying it, and I hope you and Craig had a chance to cool off in it, too.

    I say this all the time, anytime John and I are ready to pack up all the crap you need to take to a commuity pool etc, I just say put the baby pool on the deck…..VOILA….ARUBA. :)

    so glad you had a great weekend. :)

    So sweet. My 3 year old just walked in, saw Katie's picture and she said "That is my best friend, can I wear that bathing suit?" Now I need to know where you found it because she will remember this. :)
