It Don't Mean a Thing if You Ain't Got a Swing!

This picture doesn't even show how BIG this swing was, but Michael is 6 feet tall and is reaching up for Dylan, so that kind of gives you the idea!  The boys and the Grandma and Grandpa had so much fun.  This huge swing was right by the creek!  It was such a super find after a long hike.  The weather was perfect and starting to feel spring-ish... even flowers blooming around the trees and grass.  The boys played in the water, caught crawdaddies for the fish tank (craymen), dug in the soft sand.
Grandma Ann and Soren.  Soren was a little too tipsy on this big swing by himself.  I think Grandma and Grandpa had just as much fun as the kiddos!
I know I've said it before, but these kids are so happy outside.  They are like different people when they can just run free and be kids in the great outdoors.  I LOVE that they can do this practically all year round... it's just a hop, skip and a jump away.
My sweet gentlemen.  See those red legs in the background??  That's another family that came across the giant swing.  You can really tell how high it was!
Look at the handsome guy :-)  It was so funny, at the end of our hike we came across some Japanese girls.  Grandpa taught Dylan how to say hello to them in Japanese and they thought he was the cutest little American boy ever.  One of the girls had me take a picture her posing with him.  Dylan was SO embarrassed by all of their giggling and attention and of course we had to tease him just a little about his new Japanese girlfriend.  Dylan reminds me of Michael... the ladies love him, but he has no clue!
This week my sister and her kiddos are coming, my dear cousin and her girls and my favorite auntie :-)  It's going to be an "est fest" (my mom's new phrase) with all these girls around.  I can't wait and I'll be posting lots of pics. of our adventures.
Speaking of adventures, we are about to have a big one.  Our baby girl is coming in about 3 weeks!  I can't believe it and I'm a little nervous, but so excited to meet her!  At our last appointment she measured about 5.5 lbs. which is right on for this point in pregnancy.  We saw her profile and I thought she kind of looked like me.  It's so hard to tell though.
We'll keep you posted :-)
