Roller Skating

Mimi came to visit one Saturday in June and brought Franklyn a pair of roller skates! He was sooooo excited. He started out inside on the carpet and was later brave enough to try them out on the concrete. He was able to pick out his own helmet, elbow pads and knee pads earlier that day while we were shopping. He told me he also needed some butt pads! :-)

Franklyn was a little easier to teach than I thought he would be... He learned to balance himself with his arms and how to get himself going. Now he begs on a daily basis to go outside and roller skate!

The funniest thing about watching him is seeing that HUGE helmet on his head! I guess koreans have large heads... He had to have the one for eight year-olds! I don't know how he keeps his balance with that thing on!

Father's Day 2009

Scott was on a youth trip Father's Day morning so he didn't get to be a part of the pre-church photo shoot. I decided I could at least capture a few shots of Franklyn in his adorable outfit before heading out the door. We had a great morning at church and then took Scott to Los 3 Amigos for lunch. It was a nice Sunday!

Vacation Bible School

Franklyn has really enjoyed VBS this year. He loves the crafts, the songs, and the teachers. He kinda loves his girlfriends too....


One of my favorite things in the world is dressing Franklyn..... I think I work just so we can go on vacation and dress Franklyn nice. Not good! But, he sure is a doll!


Boy, did we need a vacation by early May! I was joking around one day and told my boss that I needed a vacation and he said, "Take one!" So, I got on the Carnival website and booked a cruise that was only 2 1/2 weeks away! I'm so glad we took the time to get away! The drive to Tampa was well worth it!

We cruised to Grand Cayman and had 2 wonderful days there! We shopped, went to the beach, toured Georgetown and Hell (that's right), visited the Turtle Farm, and just plain relaxed during the fun days at sea. Franklyn enjoyed the water park on the ship and had fun going down the slides. Scott and I enjoyed the food and the Mommy/Daddy time! We ALL enjoyed the naps!

We are definitely addicted to cruising and we already have another one booked for November. Can't wait!
