First Summer Swim Trip

Ready for our first outdoor swim trip!

Hey Max, mom and dad LOVE swimming, so enjoy it, because you'll be doing a lot of it!

Party at the Bolicks!

Max REALLY enjoyed his first trip to the pool! We got pool passes and will be going back as much as possible! It was so much fun. Later on, Max had a few friends over to hang out and play games. They were a pretty rowdy bunch! In other news, I will be taking my Master's exam from June 1 to June 8. Wish me luck! After that's over, Max, Zak, and I will be enjoying our summer at the pool, Wrightsville Beach, NC, and the Bolick's lake!

Max's New Car!

Well, although Max is years from getting his learner's permit and driver's license, he has his first car. And boy is it a hit with the little guy!

Like father, like son...

He is so fun to watch when he is riding, or should I say, driving his new car. He even hangs onto the steering wheel, most of the time and is engaged in driving.

Make sure to stay tuned for a video of Max cruising the streets, once the weather clears up enough for us to take him on a good, long spin around the block!

Newly Painted Home & Mother's Day

Boy, has it been busy around our household! But, fear not, we are back!
As you can tell, and probably already knew, we have been very busy painting the house. We finally got away from the ol' yellow, and painted it a fresh, new, natural color called Squirrel. What do you think?
Aside from that, we were lucky enough to have Grandma Bolick come into town for a few days to visit with Max and to allow Joie and I to get a few things. She was in town for several days, and it was nice for Max to be able to spend some time with her. I am not sure who enjoyed their time spent together more, Max or Grandma B!

After we got Grandma Bolick on the plane headed back to NC, we went to visit Joie's grandfather for a little while, and then Aunt Wilda before going to lunch at Carmen's, our favorite Italian restaurant. Here is a fun shot of Max playing with Aunt Wilda's cane and Grandma! He is such a showoff!

Finally, here is a shot of the guys at Carmen's.
Hopefully now that the house is (nearly) done, and that the weather is warming up, we'll be outside more snapping videos and pictures of little Max more and more. We find that he is changing day after day. We'll be sure to post some pictures and maybe a video of Max in his new car, but I don't want to give too much away quite yet! Take care, and thanks for checking us out.
