This is another belated addition to the blog, but better late than never! This summer we did not get to go on a vacation, so the closest thing was a trip to the Auburn waterpark. William had never been to a waterpark and had a blast. Grammy got to go with us while we left Lily with Mimi and Papa, who graciously stayed behind so we could have fun without having to worry about Lily getting too much sun, etc. William's favorite thing there was the kiddie pool with the floating alligator and slide. In the afternoon Pop even showed up and after working all day to get his nerve up to go down the slide, William succeeded. We had a lot of fun and Willliam cannot wait to be big enough to go down the slides daddy went down.

About a year ago, William saw this suit and had to buy it. He could never wear it, because we kept putting off buying Sunday shoes for him (he always wears crocs). So the day I came home with a pair of Sunday shoes, he was ready to get his suit out. These are a few pictures of William, Dad, and Lily all dressed up!
for one of my neices' birthdays and dance recital. We had fun with them, even though it seems I have no pictures, and on the way home had a few stops. The first was this little historical village outside of Huntsville where I made everyone pose in front of the doorway to a cute old restaurant. They love me, so they posed. We found this other old store, further down the road, where we made David pose, since it has his initials like 10 ft. tall. We had a great time with my brother and his family and a really good time watching Emery Claire dance in her recital.
A couple of weeks ago, William started a new chapter in his life: PRESCHOOL. To say he loves it , wouldn't be an adequate description. He got so excited over shopping for his school supplies. Who knew a $5 backpack and a matching cammo lunchbox could make a kid so happy? So far this year his class has learned about letters A, B, and C and numbers 1 and 2. He has talked more than ever since starting school and knows what a traffic light is (if you're not familiar with the green, yellow, and red light disciplinary system, this doesn't mean as much to you). These pictures are from his first day of school. Notice he's wearing his light-up T-Rex shirt. This shirt is one of about 4 he insists on wearing to school each week. The others have dinosaurs and/or cammo. He is a funny kid and is growing up.
