For Nana and Pap!!!



For Pap! Graham is really loving swimming this summer, still isn't interested in the diving board or slide. Little sister loves to ride down the slide with me. She has been using her puddle jumper by herself for about two weeks!

My sweet Graham swimming at three years old!

Gentry loves to jump off the side. She isn't so sure about climbing down the ladder.


Randomness for the Grands......

We spent last week @ VBS! PandaMania was just plain WILD! Graham and Gentry both loved it so much. I was blessed with the opportunity to teach the bible story to the threes and fours each day. We had a ton of fun learning that: God made you; God listens to you; God watches over you; God loves you, no matter what; and God gives good gifts! Graham is still singing all the songs and he is finally doing some of the motions, as you will see in the video below.

We are swimming like crazy around here! Hotel Horner is in full swing for the summer season! What a blessing our home has been to so many. Gentry learned to use her puddle jumper this week and is really becoming a pro. Graham is beginning to jump off the side and wants his jumper off more and more so that he can practice swimming.

We haven't been working on our "preschool" curriculum like we should but Graham is learning the books of the Bible and memory verses. Here are the first five......

Graham is also working really hard at potty training! It is all consuming for me. Hopefully he will be a pro soon. He just finished his fourth chart and earned a trip to Bass Pro!
I hope to post G's third birthday party pictures soon so check back.


Orange Beach 2011

We just had the best four day family of four vacation in Orange Beach, AL! The kids did a great job on the trip down. Lots of squeals and clapping from the backseat. Thanks to Mrs. Shelly we made it through the last hour and a half watching Cars. (It was a life saver!) The first night they were so excited to just be in a hotel.

After breakfast the first day we headed out to walk on the beach.

Gentry did not like the sand or the sound of the waves.

Graham couldn't wait to get in, but it was a little chilly that morning. We headed to the Gulf Coast Zoo hoping it would warm up a little.
After naps and a cookie Graham was ready to go to the beach!

Gentry was brave on Daddy's shoulders.

This is a video of Graham's first experience with waves.


Orange Beach Continued....

The days on the beach were fantastic! We also had great food at Lambert's, Old World Pizza, DeSoto's Seafood Kitchen, and Bruster's. Every moment we weren't on the beach Graham was asking if we could go. Gentry's best day on the beach was her two hour nap under an umbrella. She finally let it loose on Sunday as you'll see in the video below.
