Mommy's Little Swimmer

This summer Benny and I have went swimming quite a few times.  We also took a swim class during the month of July that met on Monday and Wednesday evenings.

A cute pic of Benny before we head to the pool.  (BTW, that tractor and fire truck are two of Benny's absolute favorite toys.  He likes to crawl underneath our dining room table and play with his small cars, trucks, and tractors.)

Zoo Day

Taking Benny to the zoo was on my 'bucket list' for the summer.  Checkity-check!  We did it!

Daddy and Benny looking for the elephants...

 Over there Daddy.  I see them!

 The elephants were one of Benny's favorite animals at the zoo.  He kept pretending he had a trunk and made elephant noises.

 It was a pretty hot day, so we had to take a rest in the shade.

Hey, what are you looking at??

Trying out Mommy's shades.

We took a ride on the choo-choo train!

Birthday Bash

Earlier this month, Benny turned 18 months old and Daddy turned the big 3-0.  P.S.--He married a much, much younger woman :)  We had Nana, Papa, and Grampie over for dinner to celebrate.  Daddy requested a happy birthday chocolate, peanut butter pie.

 Blow out the candle....

No surprise here.  Nana is feeding Benny a little bit of pie.

 Daddy needed some assistance.

Nana and Papa had just returned from a trip to TX.  They got Kevin a nice new polo shirt along with this 'Texas sized acorn.'  Yup.  Daddy's a big nut.

Benny had his 18 month check-up.  He had to get shots.  Poor baby.  He was feverish for about 2 days and was very, very sleepy.  Here are the 18 month Benny stats:

26.6 pounds, 33 inches, and he had 10 teeth (#11 just came in)
