Suzanne and Jodi pushing Ali outside on the swing.
We all went up to Huntsville this past weekend
to visit Uncle Allan & Aunt Suz,
and for Ali to see the Dodgies (dogs).

Her Aunt and Uncle got her a swing for outside,
she got to play with the "dodgies",
and she got lots of yummy food.
She could not have asked for anything better.

Reading with Mommy and Daddy
I completed my second rotation of fieldwork for OT school this past week.
It was at St. Vincent's East in Birmingham, AL.
It was a great experience and taught me a lot.
Only two more semesters of academic work and then
two semesters of just fieldwork and I will be done.
I just can't believe how fast Ali is growing, and I'm grateful I get to stay home with her while Adam goes to school.
Being a mom is such an amazing experience.

Ali had great time playing with her cousin, Brooklyn.

Springville Splash Pad


This past Thursday we went to Springville Splash Pad.
At first, Ali kept running up to the concrete, but
never went to go get into the water and was somewhat unsure.

Jodi had to go help her through the slide once or twice.
(because she loves slides)
Once she got the hang of it she had a ball.
She really liked all the water that fell from the bucket that was up high.
