It has been a while since my last update! I decided last night I probably should spend a little more time updating my blog! Recently, well about a month and a half ago (June 13th to be exact), my sweet girls were baptized in a private ceremony at church! We had a peaceful afternoon ceremony. The girls did such a great job! They really enjoyed the water sprinkling on their pretty little bald heads! Afterwards my mom cooked a great meal and baked a beautiful as well as delicious baptism cake! It was a very special day for everyone! God has blessed us so richly!!

Well, the twins are crawling...EVERYWHERE! They have been figuring it out over the past couple of weeks and now they are on the go! It used to be so easy just sitting them down in one spot and being able to come back to where I left them, now, my eyes have to be on them 24/7! They are explorers...they love to discover new things...especially things that I haven't yet child-proofed! Now I've got 3 kids on the go, what a great free gym membership!

Parks has been on a 3.5 week vacation from Mom's Day Out...he starts back to the their summer program next week! So I have been having to find alot of activities for us! But its already in the mid 90s and so humid outside, the best activity I've found is SWIMMING! Parks LOVES to go swimming and I LOVE to get sun! So we get along great :) And afterwards he is sooo exhausted he falls sounds asleep before we even make it home! Parks has really enjoyed swimming with his friends Anniston & Emma Reid! This is such great fun for them! The days we don't go to the big pool, we stay at home and enjoy our mini blow-up version! We had a great visit from Addison Gay recently and she was able to enjoy some swimming with Parks man! His favorite summer activities so far are SWIMMING and EATING ICE CREAM CONES! I couldn't think of a better way to enjoy the summer!
Last Thursday night the girls ventured from their pink plastic newborn infant tub (thanks Janel!) to the big girls bath tub! I filled the water to maybe an inch since I was on double bath duty and they are VERY ACTIVE beginner sitters! Before, we would bathe and dress them individually, but now, its a cinch! And I must say, they feel like BIG GIRLS now! They love to splash around with each other. Its so much fun to watch them explore new things, especially their new big bathtub!!

We just got back from a much needed beach trip down in Destin! We left Tuesday and got back today (Sunday)! It was a great trip!! There were ALOT of firsts on this trip! This was the girls very first beach outing! They LOVED everything but the sand! We took them out on the beach and they napped the entire time! And Parks, well, this was the first year he actually enjoyed the beach! He played in the water and built sandcastles. He had so much fun! He also LOVED the pool! There was very little downtime for mom and dad! Will and I did go out one night to have dinner at Hammerheads in Baytowne and our last night we took Parks to ride go-carts! He LOVED it! Luckily, my mom came with us to help us with the babies. She was fantastic! We are so glad to be home, but greatful for an wonderful family vacation!

The time has come! The twins are sitting up!! Collier beat Anne Collins by a couple of days, but thats ok because Anne Collins beat Collier when it came to rolling over! Now they can REALLY play together! I just sit a toy between them and they play away! Anne Collins is alot more aggressive. She wants the toys to herself! She is very very playful. And Collier is very laidback and observant. She watches Anne Collins, but don't get her wrong, when she wants something, she lets you know it! They are so much fun to watch! At 7 months, they already have such a great sisterly bond!
