4th of July vacation continues.

We have been having a really relaxing vacation yet I’ve been making the kids participate in most of the activities our resort has to offer.

The wildlife zoo show was really cool to the kids. Even the 'bigs' liked it. I ended up walking Tallulah around in her stroller outside for a little cause she just didn’t care about wild animals from the zoo.

We had breakthrough with River at the pool. He finally asked to go swimming with me and Charlie. And now wants to go into the big pool-- not just be a spectator.

Tallulah, on the other hand, is a different story always taking risks to see how far she can go till someone has to rescue her from danger.

Sophia and Pearl entered a hula hoop contest; they’ve never really hula hooped in their lives, so there wasn’t much chance of them winning and Sophia was not happy about it.

And Lincoln and Charlie made real sharp shark tooth necklaces yesterday afternoon. Really cool to any boy. Even Parker wished he had made one. Too bad.

Last night the kids went to a dive-in movie at the pool where they saw The Lego movie for the first time. Their awesome Daddy bought them all a big bag of their fav candy from Walmart to pig out on during the movie. They got back late and crashed.

We were woken up this morning to Sophia letting us know that River had decided to potty train himself with a full diaper already. Ugh.

We are now all awake and we sent some kids down to the pool to save us ‘our seats’.

Chris and I are having our coffee on the balcony. Ruby has her swimsuit on and is ready to hit the pool.

Did I mention I am really loving American Indian names right now?

Glad River is enjoying the pool now, too. Makes it fun for everyone!
