For the most part, June consisted of lessons. Mondays and Wednesdays Lucas had swim lessons at the new Aquatic Center. He has a great teacher and has gone from getting upset every time water splashes in his face to voluntarily dunking under the water. He has also done a 3 second solo swim. He graduated from Preschool 1 to Preschool 2 which he will start this month (August). He also did gymnastics June-July at Georgia All Stars from a LivingSocial coupon I had. I’m glad I had a discount on that program, because I didn’t care for that place at all. I’m going to try out another place called Zenit, and they have classes for Arianna’s age, too.
On the 3rd we released the Painted Lady Butterflies that we had raised from Lucas’s birthday kit.
The water park at the new aquatic center is really awesome. It has a playground part that is wonderful for the kids to run around on, a small deep end area for a bit of swimming, a lazy river, and water slides. It is like a close by, cheap, mini-white water. It took Arianna a little time to warm up to it, but Lucas loovveedd it.
Lauren’s baby shower was the 22nd for Miss Alexis Elizabeth. We had it at Chilis which I hadn’t been to in years and we did presents and cake! It was really fun to hang out with everybody and she got some really adorable little girl stuff.
For our 7th (12th) anniversary, Paul and I went to a movie theatre in Alpharetta where you sit in office chair style chairs and have little tables and they serve you drinks and dinner while you watch the movie. It was a neat experience, but we probably wouldn’t do it frequently. We got to see Superman and it was *awesome*.
We had a really rainy (and busy) summer, so we only made it to the pool a couple of times. Here are some shots of us hanging out.
We ended the month with a trip to the zoo with the Steins! We hardly ever get to see them anymore so it was really great to go do something with them.
