ice cream, swimming, and friends

We had a fun week. The weather was great so the kids and I went swimming for the first time this summer. Reese liked the water, but Eli wanted to run around the pool rather than swim in it. We also went to Cold Stone Creamery for some of their yummy cake batter ice cream. I let Eli pick one topping and he chose reeses pieces (in honor of his sister's name I'm sure).

Brad's good friend Alex and his girlfriend Emily stayed with us this week. They took a road trip from Iowa and are planning to move to the Phoenix area later this year. We had a lot of fun and look forward to them moving here! Eli loved playing with Alex and Emily and would follow them all around the house. Every time they would leave he asked when Alex and "Elmo" were going to come was so cute.

Yesterday Eli had some friends over to play...being he is already such a ladies man, they were all girls.haha They all played great together and had a lot of fun!

    where do i start! I LOVE the picture of Reese in her swimsuit, pretty sure that's going up on my fridge! Looks like Eli IS quite the ladies man... to be expected I guess when you're that dang cute!
    I'm so jealous of the pool pics, at least thats a way to stay cool in that hot weather!
