Look at that new swim gear!
Drew is eager to try out his new "fins".
Mikayla was eager today as well!Look at them swim! Drew is not wearing floaties at all as long as someone is at the pool with us (Jennie was today). If it is just me in the pool with the two of them, I have him wear floaties. He knows this rule and doesn't fuss about it - he is just grateful to be swimming I'm sure! However, he is very excited to have someone swimming with us because he really doesn't like to wear the floaties.
We had so much fun today, and I'm sure we will be out there tomorrow as well! There is nothing like summer vacation!!!

Drew practices his golf game while the food cooks.
Mikayla patiently waits for her hot dog. We are letting her bangs grow, but they get in her eyes big time when she doesn't have a bow in.
Uncle Jonathan gets ready to take a bite of his brownie.
Drew and Mikayla after they had gotten wet from the hose. Jennie put Miki's hair in cute pig tails!
My pretty mom and sister - don't they look just alike?
Uncle Jonathan takes a turn on Drew's dirt bike Uncle Ovid gave him.
Mimi, and Aunt Jennie talk to Jessica while she eats. I tried to get a picture of my daddy, but since he came straight here from work he didn't want a picture in his work clothes! :)

Mikayla warms up a little slower. She didn't want to get off the steps at first.
There goes our little fish! She even jumped off the diving board a few times before we got out, just like last year.
Such a cutie!
So looking forward to summer...
Coach Craig gets ready to distribute the trophies.
Drew checks out his!
The whole team poses for many pictures!
Mikayla finds an airplane to ride - she wasn't too sure of this at first, but then she decided she really liked it!
Garrett and Drew enjoy a ride on the roller coaster - not a real one of course!
Mikayla's favorite is the same as mine - the carousel!

After the opening number, it was time for evening wear. Like I said in an earlier post we did not buy a pageant dress for Mikayla to wear, but instead she wore a dress she could also wear to church.
Jadyn, who is in Mikayla's tap/jazz dance class on Monday afternoons, models her evening wear!
Mikayla wanted her Aunt Jennie to be her escort for this pageant, and Aunt Jennie obliged. From that face you might think she'd rather be anywhere else at the moment! After evening wear, we rushed back to change them into their sportswear outfits.
Kenyon, who is in Mikayla's tap/ballet class on Tuesday evenings, models her sportswear!
Mikayla models her sportswear - a Capri outfit of pink, orange, and green gingham accented with watermelon slices and strawberries. She wore a matching bow (thanks mom!!) and white summer sandals. She is carrying a basket of fresh strawberries. Those of you who know Mikayla know that this is a huge step for her - to be walking on that big stage all by herself. We couldn't believe she did it, and we are so proud of her! After the girls modeled their sportswear, they came back out to answer their on-stage question which they drew out of a hat.
Mikayla's question is "what is your favorite food to eat?". After a brief pause she answers "broccoli". This surprised Miss Andrea and everyone else in the room including me! Miss Andrea then asked Mikayla "how much broccoli do you think you could eat?", to which she replies "a lot". The audience erupted into laughter.
Abbi takes her final walk as Little Miss Rising Star.
All the girls line up for awards.
Mikayla is crowned Petite Miss Rising Star by Abbi and Miss Nicole.
Bailey (Junior Miss Rising Star), Mikayla, and Joy (Preteen Miss Rising Star) pose for a picture together.
We are so proud of Drew and Mikayla! They are good children (not perfect, but good), and they make us proud everyday. They are very determined (they get that from their mommy), and very silly (they get that from their daddy)! We can't wait to see more great things from them!

Mikayla with her best friend Breanna - just call them "double trouble".
Then, on Saturday, Drew has his last baseball game and Mikayla has the pageant. I'm not sure if I will have any hair left on Sunday for Mother's Day!

Drew gets the opportunity to play first base a little in this game.
Drew getting one of his hits!
Drew waits on first base after his single!
"Taggin' up" Another great game (and another win) Red Sox!
After the baseball game we headed to get lunch then zoomed back to the auditorium for Mikayla's dance competition awards. Today will not be as hectic as last week, but we do have a few things on our calendar (dance pictures, shopping, etc.)
