Beach Ball Fun

I have been busy re-doing my kitchen countertops. You all know how I love my primitive look and after seeing some wood countertops in a primitive store not too long ago, I thought I would give it a try. Well, things are really taking shape. One section is almost complete and another should be almost complete today. I just love how it looks and if you all recall my kitchen cabinet make-over then trust me when I say that they countertops tie in perfectly with the knobs on the doors and drawers. Well, after working on those for a little bit last night, I decided to help DH get out the beach ball sprinkler for Cameron. I thought it was warm enough and what a great way to cool off. Well, he is way into much more then last year. He would run up and then hurry and run back as you can see here. He would squeal really loud and then run for cover. It was hilarious!!
Even Daddy got into the sprinkler too. He thought it would be neat to put Cameron on his shoulders and well Cameron hit the water and about took a nose dive off of Shawn's shoulders. Good thing DH had a hold of him. Geesh, Cameron is such a wild one!! I would've posted more pics, but DH wasn't too fond of me posting them.
Look at that GREAT smile!! Nothing better then hearing a little one laugh with excitement.
We went to enroll Cameron in swim lessons last night, but they didn't have Mommy/Child classes so we are going to have to try something else. I was hoping to find something close to home, but it doesn't look like that is gonna happen. We are also going to attempt Potty Training 101 today, but so far it isn't looking good. He pee'd 3 times within 45 minutes!! How can a child have so much pee in their bladder after they just got done soaking 2 pairs on undies, a pair of socks and shorts. Any suggestions from all you Mom's? Could he just not be ready yet? He turns 3 in January.

can not wait to see your countertops.
looks like Shawn & Cameron had fun outside running through the sprinkler.
Collin does not get to spend much time outside this summer. (due to his incision) But he has fun just sitting on the porch swing with Daddy. :)

Fun! About two months ago Lukas told me he wanted to go potty in the toilet. He went two days with only one accident. Then he completly lost intrest. I tried to push it but he flipped out. He still goes somtimes but he will only go when HE wants too not when I ask ect. I figured I would try again at the end of the summer when we aren't on the go so much and not outside so much. That way he won't feel like he is missing out as much by coming into go potty. I have heard WONDERFUL things about the 3 day potty training method. I don't know too much about it but you buy it online and I think I am going to buy it when I really push it.

Owen had lots of accidents his first's a big change. Just keep trying and if after a few days it's still going south then stop and try again in a month or so he'll remember everything you taught him.

Cute pictures. We have that sprinkler ball too. Big Fun!
I am anxious to see the counter tops too.
2.5 is early for boys. I say wait until he is really showing signs & try not to stress. They will let you know when they are ready. It sure saves the heartache with all the accidents. Mine were all potty trained in a day, but I waited until they were all ready. All before 3, but they were ready.
