Our summer so far...

May - our first boat outing of the season, it started drizzling when we got the boat in the water but we decided to ride around a little at least. And we were so glad we did, we got to follow a group of 3 dolphins around the intracoastal for a while, it was great to see them so up close.
We started a Friday night cards tradition with some friends in the neighborhood. Caroline, Caitlin, and Samantha enjoy themselves while mommies and daddys have fun too.

We began June with what turned out to be a family trip to Camp Don Lee. This was our first time camping with Caroline and she enjoyed it.
Got to take her sailing for the first time.
Our attempt at a group shot of the 5 grandkids (no one knew at the time that #6 is on the way!)
Relaxing in the CDL pool (glorified pond.)
The whole family.
Travis' mom and step dad came down the week of Caroline's birthday. Doug along with some help from Travis built Caroline a swing set in time for her birthday party.
Grandma and Grandpa Grimes came down on Caroline's birthday and brought her birthday gift..a big girl bicycle. She's gotten very good at riding it now.
We had a princess and pirate themed birthday party at the house for her.
Couldn't get her to stop playing to come eat pizza, but she finally slowed down long enough for some birthday cake.
After cake everyone headed inside to open presents, Caroline's 2 best helpers were right by her side as ususal!
Caroline as Buzz Lightyear.
I visited her daycare for their July 4th parade. Caroline were her "Big Sister to be" shirt to announce that we're expecting #2. We surprised my family the next day at their local July 4th parade too where caroline shared the exiting new with them too.
