Our Week...

On Tuesday, we had a kiddie pool play date at a friend's house...complete with leftover potluck lunch! I don't know what is with Daniel's face in this picture, but I thought it was funny!

Daniel and Kate jumped right took Liam a little longer to warm up.
On Wednesday, we hung out at home. Daniel is obsessed with the movie CARS. It is on repeat in his room all day long. He doesn't necessarily watch it all day, but it just has to be on. My mom even has a copy at her house because we forgot it at home and Daniel threw a fit! He ran up and down the hall screaming, " I want Cars! I want Cars!"

On Thursday morning, we walked the LSU Lakes with Aunt Jane and Halle. Daniel did surprisingly well...he usually hates being in the jogging stroller! He laughed hysterically when he saw some funny squirrels chasing one another, and when we saw soemone walking with a dog, he immediately sat up and said, "Puppy! I want puppy!" Talk to your daddy about that one, boy!

Here it is Fridy already. Trying to straighten the house and one minute, they are helping you clean....
The next, they are making a mess!
I love this crazy kid!

On another note, does anyone have any idea why these pictures are posting all fuzzy? They don't look fuzzy normally.
