FEBRUARY POOL TRIP!!! (Nope, you didn't misread that!)

Today was absolutely "gawgous"...as we said in Savannah! It was in the low 80's in the sunshine, so when Chad got home from work we decided to take a trip to the pool - I put Rauly's hair in pig-tails for the first time! She had her swimsuit on but we didn't let her get in the water due to her eyes and ears...she just pranced around in her suit. Shep on the other hand had a big time with daddy in the water! Afterwards we went for a walk around the area - when the weather is as beautiful as it has been lately, I could walk for hours!!

Oh my word! I love her pigtails! She is so adorable. It was hot here the past few days too. Don't think I could brave the water, but it sure looks good.
I can't wait to come see you and let the girls play! It may be sooner rather than later.
Hey, I am the first comment finally!

She looks so adorable in her pigtails!! I can't wait to have a girl and do fun things with hair! I'm the same as you, if it's warm outside, I have to be out there playing in it. We have been having picnics in the yard and going on tons of walks lately.

Forgot to mention this...
Yesterday, I was bored and started going through the top drawer of Josh's old dresser looking for old letters and cards we had written eachother, and I found a stack of cards written to him about a chapel talk he did on the power of prayer his last year. One of them was from you and Kristy! It was the sweetest card, and I just thought that was SO interesting that I found that now, when we're all connected through blogs now!

What a fun afternoon! It looks like you all had a really good time. Who would have thought...pool day in February? I'm glad it was such a pretty day. By the way, Rauly's hair is precious in pig-tails. Definitely a good look for her.

Melissa - I looked at the pics with fresh eyes last night and you're right - Rauly does look very long! (Not 4 yrs old!!!...but very very long!) :)

Lauren - Kristy is one of the most thoughtful people I've ever met! After Josh rocked the house with his awesome chapel talk she thought it would be a nice thing for us to write him a letter. I'm so glad to hear he kept little notes like that - I wish I had kept more of my notes and letters from friends!

Terri - Chad and I would absolutely LOVE to take a trip to the beach with your fam...name the day and we'll be ready!

Kristy - Hope the painting is coming along!! :)
