Camping and swim lessons

This past weekend we went camping up north. (in a tent, camper is not up to par quite yet!!) The weather was beautiful, but we battled epic mosquito conditions. I have never seen anything like it. Micah and I are the worst with bites everywhere, luckily Adelie wasn't touched. I look like I have chicken pox.
 I didn't take many pics of Adelie's first camping experience, but we did capture our redneck swimming! The water was cold, only the little girlies seemed to care.
(Sunday was very hot, but none of us actually brought swimming clothes, but we improvised!)
Adelie seems to want to take a nap whenever we go swimming. This has happened in the YMCA pool before too!

 Micah's last swim lesson
 My brave boy-jumping in the pool with no bubble
 He has mastered floating on his back without a bubble or assistance!

 Treading water on his back, all by himself
 Saw this idea on a kids tv station-Banana ice cream.  I took 3 ripe bananas, cut into chunks, put in freezer.  When they were frozen, put them in a food processor and blend.  It had the exact consistency of ice cream, and it was delicious! Micah had no idea it wasn't real ice cream. He kept asking for more! Definitely doing this again!

 Took this right before this sweet little girl was done playing and decided to just roll over and put herself down for a nap. She is such an easy baby!
Up next-Memorial day zoo trip! Stay tuned!

Sleeping Beauties

Caught pictures of Adelie sleeping the past 2 days...notice her favorite position??

 Micah fell asleep like this last night...too tired to even finish eating his apple!
 Sleepy cats...

Micah's first Tigers game, Adelie is 4 months old!

Last Saturday we had the opportunity to go to Detroit again for Home Plate (players giving their testimonies!) with the youth group. Micah was able to go this year.  He wouldn't take a good pic all day, but we tried to make the day memorable for him. He got to ride the carousel, got a certificate with his name and date on it that commemorated his first game, we walked around the whole stadium,  and Uncle Myke spoiled him with ice cream! The only thing that would have made it better for him-he really wanted to get on the field.

And yesterday Adelie turned 4 months old.  She is such a happy baby! She did have a round of shots yesterday, so that makes for a sleepy, but not too crabby yet, baby.

Tried some rice cereal. Note her tongue-not much got in her mouth. Maybe she isn't quite ready yet.

Sweet baby girl

Her Dr appt stats- she weighed in at 11 lb 7 oz, 23 inches long. About 10th percentile.
In comparison: Micah was 14 lbs even and 24 1/4 in long at 4 months,
Matt was 13 lb 4 oz, 25.5 in,
Jennie was 12 lb 12.75 oz, 23.5 in.

Our little peanut!
