Coco surprised Stryker with a karate class tonight! The instructor agreed to let Stryker try the class out for free this week to make sure he would like it & could follow along since he's younger than 4. He started out great but got a little teary-eyed when the instructor's voice got louder during instructions. After a quick break in my lap, he was back out there! The instructor took special time with Stryker during the class. He was so proud to have daddy, mom, baby Lake, & Coco watching with undivided attention. The instructor said he was impressed with Stryker's motor skills & how well he was able to follow instructions. Can't wait to see how Thursday's class goes!

Friday: Logan & I met the kiddos at Coco's house to splash around in the pool. Stryker was running around, playing water gun tag, & playing basketball! Oh & flirting with some older girls! After pool time, we headed to the playground to dry off. Stryker was trying to learn how to throw a Frisbee. We ate on Boston butt & ribs before gobbling down homemade ice cream. Stryker loves making it with Coco.
Saturday: Happy 3rd birthday Lucy! We celebrated Stryker's best friend's special day with an afternoon cowgirl/cowboy party at Tannehill. We had a great time riding ponies & eating some grub! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy her 3rd birthday.
Sunday: Decoration Sunday. Each year around this time, we remember Logan's dad. The church where he is buried has a decoration Sunday when friends & family come together. We spend a little time at his grave site placing plants/flowers before heading into the church to listen to special guest group of singers. They sing the good ole Gospel music - the songs that helped Logan's dad learn the Bible since he was dyslexic. Afterwards, we filled our tummies with country cooking from a little buffet. We always enjoy seeing everyone. While Logan let the kids nap, I mowed our yard. Yes, I did because I love to cut the grass. I love that time to listen to music, get sun, & pushing the mower provides a good workout. Logan surprised me when I finished by having the clothes ironed!
Monday (Memorial Day): The morning began with another pool session at Coco's before heading over to our neighbor's for a cookout. Stryker enjoyed the slip n slide with friends (twin girls) while we munched on good food/snacks.

Coco moved several weeks ago to Kimberly. Her subdivision has an amazing pool that is extremely kid-friendly. It has a big walk-in pool with a little baby pool nearby. The swimming pool even has a waterfall for the kids. There is a cool park & open field behind the pool. What a fun time we had at Coco's house! We will be spending a lot of time there this summer.
