Lake Day!

Wow - where does the time go?? I can't believe how the weeks are just flying by. Our weekends have been filled up lately and June is already turning out to be no exception. This past Sunday, we met up with Amber, Stephen and Parker. Daniel loves to see his Aunt Amber and Uncle Stephen and play with his cousin Parker. We decided to try out a local lake and letting the adult boys go fishing while the mom's and kiddos went swimming. Well we had a blast and below are the pictures to prove it!!

Check out the last picture, can you tell Granny's been shopping for her two youngest grandchildren!! What's so funny is that this was not planned!!

The only other news I can think of is that Daniel is 90% potty trained!! This means we are going days now without accidents and nights too!! He went the last 5 nights without an accident in his pull up so last night for the first time, he slept in big boy underwear and he made it through the night!!! He still has an occassional accident if he's tired or just too busy. But otherwise we are almost there!!! YAY!!

Rachel! I love the photos! How fun that Daniel gets to go swimming with his cousin. I know what you mean about the time flying. This side of the adoption, time seems to go back to warp speed!

Yay! I'm glad to hear that Daniel is doing well with his potty training!

Also, I am so jealous. It's so cold up here in Chicago. We would love to go swimming, but it has been really chilly. Hopefully, we can go soon!

I love all of the photos!

Wow...potty trained already? He's only 2, right? How'd you do that so quickly? You'll have to post all you did. Or, come over my house when my two kiddos get here and help me. ;-)

What a great summer you will all have together. He's doing so well. I can't believe it's been over a year already. Big changes you've seen, I'm sure.

Hi from Russia,

He is doing so good with his potty training that is so great! Love the photos of the Lake. It reminds me of home in Michigan! A little home-sick this weekend.

Thanks for your kind words.
