Summer is coming. We're ready.

We've had a string of warm days, and couldn't hold the kids back from swimming any longer. Mimi (my sister) was home with her family, and we were thrilled to see Fin again. All three of us sisters took our boys (the girls had school) to the Gray Animal Farm. Everyone had a blast. Max wanted to "see more animals" as quickly as he could. It was windy, but the place was empty, so it was worth it.

Mason has a really hard time with balance, so kayaking with him was tricky, but SO worth it. He loved it. He kept on saying, "here I come" and "it rocks." He waved and yelled hi to everyone we saw. It was a riot and I can't wait to go with him again.

Myles was thrilled to be wearing his Spiderman lifejacket again.

Mason's first turtle. He was less than thrilled.

Max loves to catch anything he can. He was my helper catching above turtle.

The cold water didn't bother Maddie a bit.

Max thought this was comfy. Mason let him know that it was NOT!

Mason's new hat. We're a bit late in getting him one.

I tried to post a video demonstrating Mason's obsession - serious obsession - with driving, trucks, and tractors, but apparently that's not going to happen. Trust me, the obsession is real :)

It looks like the Labonte Family know how to have lots of fun. How fun to have some warm weather to get a taste of summer around the corner. Your kids are adorable and I really like the last picture of Mason.

LOVE the new pictures, thanks for sharing. It's good to know Luke is not alone in his obsession. Anything with spinning wheels and basically any mode of transportation....he loves tractors and mustangs. LOL

Love the update--I wanna go swimming too!!

Fun update and so good to see them all out and moving about!

Do you get lake flies/caddis flies? It is extremely unpleasant to be by water right now in our neck of WI, because if you open your mouth, in go the lake flies! What a blast all your adventurous kids are having! I love the "real life" expressions on the brothers' faces. Hee hee!
