A Getaway to the Murray's!

We headed to St. Charles yesterday to see my best friend, Jenny and hang out and swim in her pool for a little getaway. It was just me and the kids.

We also couldn't wait to see their baby, Michael, who we hadn't see since he was 2 weeks old.

Michael dips his feet in the pool for the first time.
Alaric was amazing!!!! He loved the water. Ever tried to surf some with Joe

Jenny and Michael loved watching us!

We were in the water 3 hours on Thursday afternoon and almost the same this morning. It was great. Alaric put his face in the water and swam for the first time under water with and WITHOUT floating and Amara floated around the pool for the first time with her floaties. We loved it!

Baby Michael is so sweet and an amazing baby!

Amara got to go to Meijer shopping with Jenny, her Godmother. Who surprised her by buying a cookie cake to celebrate her birthday and a pink TuTu!

We loved the cookie cake they picked, especially me! Did you know store bought cookie cakes with tons of frosting are my absolute favorite?

The kids had a blast playing with Michael and trying to get him to laughIt wasn't hard as he is a really great baby!

We floated around and around the huge pool laughing and splashing and pretending to captains in the army, super heroes, space cadets, and all sorts of other things

THanks Murrays for having us!
