Sleeping with the Dogs

So yesterday I was busy getting things ready to go to my Dad's house and I hadn't seen Torilynn in a while. I decided that I'd better be a good Mom and go look for her around the house. I looked for her all around the downstairs and I couldn't find her, so I went upstairs. I looked upstairs and still could not find her. I was about to panic when this is what I found: I think she thinks she is a dog, not only does she fall asleep next to them but I also often find her drinking from their dog bowls. Oh the joys or being a toddler.Landon on the other hand has out grown the "I think I'm a dog" stage. He sat on the couch and watched cartoons while I got ready to go. They grow up so fast, it seems like only yesterday it was him drinking from the dog's bowl.

Yesterday we also went swimming at my Dad's house. It was a lot of fun. Landon is a cautious boy and wanted me to be near by at all times, but I am pretty sure Tori though she was a big kid. She kept trying to get out off my arms so she could swim off. Maybe Tori liking the water will motivate Landon to like it more, I don't think he wants to be out done by his little sister.
Ella did not join us in the pool (because I am a paranoid mom and I had two other children to deal with) but she looked super cute in her swimming suit. I especially love the back of the swimming suit with the little ruffles.

That's really funny that she fell asleep with the dogs. Noah would do the same!!

Ella's swimsuit is SO cute!! Ahh, if only adults could get away with wearing ruffles on their booties...

That is sooo dang cute (and gross), that Tori thinks she is a dog, I remember when the older boys used to think they were too.
I am so excited to go out there and enjoy the warmth, and go swimming!!
