Before swim lessons, we had some time to kill so Kate and I stopped at a park near Cheryl's house for a little bit. While Kate played in the playground, I took off around the walking track that encircles it and watched her play as I walked. Along the path, I came across a painted rock that looked like an alligator's head, and then another yellow one with a heart that kind of looks like Ohio. I had heard that some people were painting rocks and hiding them all over for others to find, so I was pretty excited that we had stumbled upon them.

We are now in year 4 of swim lessons with Mrs. Cheryl of Hubenak Swim School. Kate's pretty advanced now and swims like a fish, but there are so many more things to learn and I love that she enjoys it so much. It's also bonus time with friends, and there's nothing wrong with that! These girls have managed to be in the same class now for the past 3 years.

Yiayia and Bill spent 30 very long days visiting some friends in Europe. Kate was not pleased with their trip and missed them terribly while they were gone. She cried the first few days after they left, but Yiayia had left some gifts behind for her to open occasionally while they were gone so that kept Kate occupied some, and they were also able to facetime and text as well. She was still super excited when June 8th rolled around and it was time to pick them up from the airport. She made them a welcome home sign:

I have visited Airfield Falls in the past for photo opportunities. It's the only natural waterfall in Tarrant county, and before there wasn't much of a trail head to get you there other than a sad parking lot and sidewalk. Not many people knew about it, which was kind of nice, but it's also nice now that the parks department has constructed a fancy new trail head with good parking and a cool partial aircraft display. Kate and I decided to go check it out today, since we've had tons of rain lately so I knew the falls would really be flowing.

It was the first night at VBS today and Kate was very excited! Our theme this year is The Battle Belongs to the Lord. The church building is decked out in Army and camouflage. We even have a almost life-size (cardboard) tank in the foyer. Everything looks so good!
Krystal, Scruffy and the kids came back over this afternoon to visit again. They have to head home to Colorado soon, so we won't get to see them again for a while. It's hard when family lives so far away. We were jut hanging out around the house when they told us about this ice cream-like place called Lumi Snow. It's not really ice cream, and it's not really snow cones......it's like if snow tasted like ice cream? I don't know - it's really hard to describe. All I knew is that we really needed to try this out, so we got dressed for VBS (it starts tonight!) and headed over to eat some snow.
