Marin's First Swim

Well...Marin finally decided to join the fun! She saw me swimming for the last few weeks and chose to bite the bullet. Mama took pictures of her in her swimsuit, but then forgot the camera at Granny's house when we went to Grandma and Grandpa Breese's to swim. I'm sure she won't forget it next time.

Meanwhile, I'm getting pretty good at swimming myself. I wear arm bands, but I'm not afraid to go under water or jump off of the side. This year I'm not drinking half of the pool. I finally listened when everybody told me to keep my mouth closed. Hard for me to do. I'm a talker! Time for my nap, gotta go!

Our First Blog!

This is our first blog post. Last weekend Mama, Daddy, Granny, and Grandma Breese all went to the Indianapolis Zoo with us. We saw the dolphin show. I (Maddox) sat very still and stoic throughout, even though I said that was my "number 1" thing I wanted to do. Marin liked everything we saw. She enjoyed the dolphin show and was actually boucing to the music. Mama took about 250 pictures, like always.

We got to see the newest members of the zoo, The Koalas. Mama got a picture of one sleeping.

We also saw and heard the lions. I don't know if anyone else has heard a lion roar when you're standing 30 feet away, but its pretty cool. The Daddy Lion kept talking and roaring to the Mommy. Crazy! We saw the meerkats, some cool lizards, and some turtles.

It was a lot of fun!! See pics below of us having fun!
