Golf With Daddy...

Richard and Tatum are now golfing buddies. Tatum got her own set of Golf Clubs when Cooper was born, as a Welcome to Being a New Big Sister....little did we know, she was going to LOVE it, and be really good at it. At least we think she is really good at it for a 6 year old. Richard joined the McKinney Golf Club, so they are able to go often. They love it! Great bonding time....well, I think so at least. She has not come home yet complaining about Richard yelling at her to do it right. I am sure that will come too!

I love to watch her hit with her driver. She hits is high and in the air. I laugh when I hear the "ping" just like the big boys!! On this day, Richard said she also sunk a 12-13 foot putt. He was impressed!

It's been hot, but this day was only about 94 degrees, not too bad considering it has been well about 100 for a few weeks! Needless to say, that had a blast and they BOTH can't wait to get back out there!!

Summer Fun...

We have been doing lots of fun stuff this summer, without even going anywhere yet! Tatum has been such a great big sister! I am so proud of her. She loves to take care of Cooper, and has never once shown any jealously towards him. She loves him so much and I love that! She is always so concerned about what his is doing. One little whimper from him, and she is telling me to get him. She thinks he can't cry for even 1 second!! Too cute!
We have been swimming a lot! Richard loves to throw Tatum around the pool, and she gets a kick out of it! She has really become a fish this summer!

Did I mention Richard has been having a ball too??!!?
4th of July this year was very uneventful! Tatum got sick the day before with high fever and stomach cramping. I ended up having to take her to an After hours doctor on 4th of July evening. Dr. said she had a stomach bug that had been going around. So, our fun day plans to go to the Golf Club, Take a Hot Air balloon ride, swim, and play all the events happening up there did not happen! We did take her out to watch fireworks, but she was falling fast, so we watched then headed straight home. Cooper, slept through the whole thing!!! They looked cute though!!

After Fireworks, Nana and Papaw came back over for a little bit. My dad was holding Cooper and I had to take this picture because he looked so cute!! Just look at those cheeks!!!

More swimming! I must say, we have done a lot of it, but with the temps being over 100 degrees almost's the only thing we can do to tolerate it!
This is how Cooper tolerates it. He just looks MAD! But, this is one of my favorite pictures!!!

More to come from Tatum's Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini party!! I can't believe my baby girl is 6!!!
