Palmer Turns Three!

My sweet Palmer turned three. She begged for months to have an ice cream party. That girl loves some ice cream! So we decided to have her party at Ben and Jerry's. She invited a bunch of friends and they had so much fun.

Shangri-La 2010

Shangri-La is a family tradition for our family. We go to Lake Ouchita every summer for a week with my family and friends from back home. It's great! So relaxing! We just swim, go out in the boat, eat, and relax all week. Here are some pictures:

As soon as we got to our cabin, Hudson immediately found this cabinet she could climb in.

Swim Lessons

Emerson and Palmer took swim lessons from Kristi and Chuck Trisdale. I was amazed at how much they learned. Before lessons Emerson wouldn't put her face in the water and Palmer was scared of the water. By the end of the week they were both swimming as you can see in the videos below. I now have two little fish.
