Every week Violet sits on my lap before lessons begin. She'd get really quiet and nervous.

The water was really cold today. Violet was not happy about this. Nor was I.

moments before dunking, I was trying to explain to Violet to close her eyes and mouth really tight. She'd didn't really get the concept of doing it together.

Violet cried a little and explained, "no do it again Mommy".

With every class Violet did less and less crying. I think we'll be going to the pool more often this summer to keep her used to the water.

We spent the morning yesterday at Deanna Rose Farm. It was a nice break from everything and we all had a lot of fun. Violet warmed up pretty quickly to all the animals.

I like this picture a lot. It would have been better if there weren't other people in it.

More cow bell!

Did not like the goats at first. They kept licking her legs and chewing on her pants.

She warmed up to them and then wanted to hug them.

Gross! Oh, don't touch that end.
The goats made the most impression. She kept saying the goats were giving her kisses and that they were trying to eat her pretty dress.

We fed the ducks and the fish.

We played on the playground a little bit. It was kind of crowded with school groups. To many kids running around and Violet can't get out of the way quick enough.

Time for a break. By the time we left it was really starting to get hot.


Uncle John to Violet.

Capri Sun to be exact.

Most of the neighbors, and us, keep their garage fridges stocked with water, popsicles, and Capri Sun. That way whom evers house we end up at in the evenings, there is always something to drink.

I was told, "Birdies make bacon".

The mess was worse by the end.
