Happy Father's Day!

What a wonderful week-end!

There was LOTS of swimming this week-end! Devin went in our pool Friday afternoon, Abuela and Grandpa's pool all afternoon Saturday, and swim lessons on Sunday morning.

It was Devin's final swim lesson Sunday morning and he received a nice progress report from the instructor. The summary of it is that Devin has mastered all but 2 of the skills for his level. The two that Devin has not mastered he was close- 10/15 feet on reach and pull front with bubbles and 3/5 feet on front swim with bubbles. He also received a comment to "pay more attention." Surprised? We're not! Haha! He just loves to goof around when he isn't in the action. He's still young...

We are very proud of Devin's swimming ability! He has really been confident in the pool so far this summer. He is jumping in by himself, swimming around the entire pool unassisted, and wanting to practice without life jacket/floats.

There was lots of food this week-end too. A bbq, Father's Day brunch, movie outing, and cake. Erick requested an Italian Wedding Cake (Sandra Lee recipe) for Father's Day and we have been enjoying it all week-end. So sweet and delicious!

Sunday afternoon we went to see Toy Story 3. Dads were getting in free at Chunky's (with free popcorm to boot!) and Devin is still free there so it only cost us $5.75 in admission! Score! Devin has been waiting to see this movie since he first found out there would be a third. He has been so excited, and honestly so have Erick and I. Its contagious. When your child is so "into" something, you can't help but be excited with him! The movie didn't disappoint either.

We ended the week-end with a little Wii time. After an hour of Wii basketball, table tennis, and sword play it was time for bed...but not before we took a visit to "Melt Down City!" Poor Devin was overtired. He will sleep well tonight!
