Sunday we left for Daytona Beach, Florida. We went with the Morgan family and had a really fun time. All of us missed our babies alot though. Ava and Brody stayed home with Mimi and I think they all really enjoyed their time together. Florida was fun, but we sure are glad to be home! Brody started pulling up while we were gone, and I think Ava has finally cut her second tooth. It doesn't take long to miss a lot! Here's some pictures from our trip---- and check out Ava's new trick- she started this the day before we left! Also, you know I can't pass up showing off Brody's sweet smile every chance I get!

Today we met Lindsey at Burger King so all the kids could play. Then we went to Target to get a few things we still needed for our beach trip- we leave Sunday! Yea! Hannah and Adam were so excited about their new goggles that the very first thing they did when we got home was get them out and model them for me. Don't ask me why, but Adam thinks having goggles on also requires rain boots- Go figure! Also, Ava is maybe finally getting enough hair to hold a clip, so Hannah decided to fix her up- I think we need some WAY smaller bows!

Today we had a great Father's Day. We got up and went to church and then out to lunch at Johnny's pizza. Then we came home and I took a nap- have I mentioned what a great husband and father Daniel is?! We've had a relaxing afternoon just enjoying our family time together. Lately we've been trying to feed the babies some soft table foods- the carrots we fed them yesterday seemed to be a big hit! Here's some fun video of them chowing down!

Sunday afternoon, Daniel and I went to a sendoff party for Jessica Scott. She is Miss West Georgia and will be competing in the upcoming Miss Georgia pageant for a chance to go to Miss America. She works in Children's Church at our church and we thought it was important to support her in what she's doing. While we were out, we stopped and bought a kiddie pool for the kids. They invited our neighbor Hannah to come play with them. The babies also took a dip in the baby pool. It was a fun afternoon!

Hannah has been such a big helper lately! Adam, too! On Friday night they decided they would reorganize their rooms and they did a surprisingly good job! They even cleaned out the bottom of Adam's closet! WOW! I'm not sure what made them want to be little cleaners, but apparently it continued on for another day with Hannah! Last night, Daniel and I were trying to watch a movie and kept hearing banging around in the kitchen, so finally we called Hannah into the living room to see what she was getting into, and she said she had just finished unloading the dishwasher! I was so proud of her...I almost don't want to share that this morning for the last 20 minutes or so, I've been getting dirty dishes back out of the cabinets and drawers to put back in the dishwasher where they were waiting to be washed!!! I know one thing- I won't be sharing that knowledge with Hannah!

Today was Adam's last day of swimming lessons. I am so glad this time is over! Its so exhausting! He did so wonderful, though. He was jumping right off the diving board today and even asked Marty if she would let him swim all the way to the steps! Guess he's gotten brave in the last two weeks. I forgot my camera today, but I took video of him on Tuesday jumping into the deep end of the pool. I'm also going to include a cute picture I took of Ava - she loves to clap her hands now! We took the babies to Chick-fil-A's headquarters in Atlanta yesterday and they got to meet Mr. Truett Cathy- Ava kept clapping at him and he was getting the biggest kick out of it! She is such a ham!

Today we went back to Egleston Children's Hospital in Atlanta for our final sweat test for Brody. We just received the news at about 6pm that his test results came back completely normal-----BRODY DOES NOT HAVE CYSTIC FIBROSIS!!!!! We are ecstatic and so thankful that our many, many prayers have been answered. I have to say though that the last couple of months of worrying and wondering have definitely taught us a few things about what's important in life- and it has nothing to do with a clean house! (anyone who's been here lately can vouch for that!) Thanks for all of your support and prayers! Now we can get on with watching our HEALTHY babies grow up!

Today we got to enjoy the 90+ degree weather at swimming lessons. Adam did SO good-I'm including some video and pictures from today. When we started to leave, I realized that I had a flat tire on my van- FUN! Daniel left work and came to put my spare on for me and then he and Adam took the tire and had it repaired. Thank goodness Daniel could do that for me!
