The First First Splash of Summer

The water was only 77 degrees and there was no way my hiney was going in that water but my four children eagerly awaited the big moment they have been waiting all winter and spring for...their first splash in their Mamma and Poppa's new pool.  The Saturday before Mother's Day it was going to be the first of many splashes for summers to come.

It was breezy and only hot in the sunshine so we opted to make them wait until after we ate lunch which allowed plenty of time for me to capture these bathing beauties and handsome hunks poolside.

The backyard is a masterpiece thought out and executed perfectly and flourishing in the spring time sun.  I am a lucky girl to get to enjoy such tranquil beauty (I can tune out the four rambunctious kids...I've had plenty of practice!).  My in laws more than garden they create magazine worthy dreams come true.
Luke is growing up and wanting to be like Jack in so many ways.  It is fun to see them side by side in their "big" boy poses showing off all of their muscle potential.

Well here we go 1, 2, 3, JUMP!
They stayed and swam a lot longer than I expected but when their lips turned blue their Mom made them get out.  What a mean mom!
 My four little cuties!  Love them so!

Celebrating Others

Every body has a story.  And for today a few of us got to celebrate a very special little girl who overcomes challenge after challenge thrown her way.  Today HOPE RAN A RACE!  And half of it was uphill!  We were so proud of her!

 "Put me down Daddy...let's Race again!"

Hope attends the School Happy Hands Education Center and they are such a blessing to hearing impaired children all over Tulsa.  This jog-a-thon was one of their fundraisers.  If you would like to find out more information about the school, donate to help a child attend, or even become a volunteer check out their website HERE.

And just in case you want to see how much Hope has grown check this out from her one year photoshoot!
