This past weekend, we finally went snorkeling for the first time. I didn't have an underwater camera unfortunately so I can't show you any cool fish pictures. But you can see the amazing beach. This beach is only about 20 minutes from our house and is a nice lagoon so it is waveless (perfect for the kids). It looks like a postcard, doesn't it? Snorkeling is amazing! It is so beautiful and peaceful, drifting through the warm waters and enjoying a whole other world that our Lord created. We were even able to take Asher along and let him look under the water with his own goggles...he loved it. We will definitely be doing it some more!

And hello to old friends. This is a picture of Joel with one of our dearest college buddies Mike Compton (HT01 baby). We haven't seen Mike in about 5 or 6 years?? Anyways, Joel saw him in a cab while walking home from lunch and ran the cab down. Mike's crew was flying out in 1.5 hours so we had about 5 minutes with each other but they were a great 5 minutes. Wish we had had all night Mike!
And here I am 25 weeks pregnant. Feeling huge and wishing for that nice big U shaped pillow every night. I think I am wearing Joel down. We just happened to watch the TV show "Notes from the Underbelly" last night. For those who don't know, it isn't funny at all unless you have been there, down that with pregnancy. And last's night episode had a great segment on the U-shaped pillow. I was laughing so hard, I was crying. But it might have won Joel over to finding me one!

Potty boot camp started today for Anna. First I have to say that I NEVER would have chosen this time in our chaotic lives to potty train her. For the past 2 weeks, she has been sort of potty training herself: refusing diapers, asking for princess undies, constantly demanding the potty. So we figured since we aren't too commited to outside activities right now, why not go for it. So here I find myself at the end of the day frustrated from the pee clean-up (I go straight to undies) and lack of productivity. I thought that I would be the veteran expert after surviving Asher potty training, but it is just as hard and frustrating the second time around. I am hoping that Anna will progress faster since she seemed to want this so bad! But of course, she didn't want it today. But from this picture, you can see we had ONE success at the end of the day and she was so proud of her first sticker of her sticker chart. Hopefully tomorrow, we will get 5 more on there!
Above: Asher and Anna having a tea party. I know, is this really for boys?! But hey, they had a blast.
Below: Family movie night...can you believe they have to have their own bowls of popcorn!!! They won't even share with me. Hhhmmm...where might they get that from?
