6: Swim Lessons Summer 2011
7: Zach took swim lessons at Maley's this spring and summer - his teachers were Mr. Robert and Ms. Carolyn. The spring lessons were rough, but he began to relax in the water and quickly got the hang of it in his summer lessons. (goggles helped)
8: Baton Rouge June 2011 | Zach spent a weekend with his hero, Uncle Trent, and Aunt Courtney. They played legos, made homemade pizza, went to the playground and splashpark, and played in the pool every day. Zach had a blast and even made friends with Kahlua.
10: We stayed a week at Destin West this July. The kids swam all day every day and loved playing on the beach. We celebrated Zach's 5th birthday with a donut breakfast. | Destin Beach Trip 2011
12: Zach and Callie played in the Gulf the first night we were there. They'd run up to the water and run back on the beach screaming.
13: The last night of our vacation we walked out on the pier and watched the dolphins playing in the Gulf. There were fishermen all along the pier. | Callie played mini-golf with Grandmommy, Sarah, and Mark. She's standing under a giraffe.
14: Fun at the Pool
16: Florida's Gulfarium
17: We spent the morning at the Gulfarium in Fort Walton, Fl. The Dolphin show starred a dolphin named Zach. We also watched the seal show, petting a turtle, and stingrays.

26: KINDERCAMP 2011
28: Zach played soccer every day instead of waterplay. Given the option he prefers to run. He celebrated turning 5 on the same day as his birthday party. Every day Zach took a hot wheels car, keychain, or some gadget to show his friends. One day he went with stickers on his face and one day he went with a mohawk. What a summer!
29: Callie's KINDERCAMP 2011 | Callie came to stay with us for a week and attended summer camp with Zach. She took BB with her everyday and brought me handfuls of rocks when I picked her up in the afternoon. She is my sunshine - eternally happy and full of energy.
30: July visit to Birmingham | Zach and Callie enjoyed bowling and dancing to club music while waiting for their turn. Their bowling techniques ranged from kicking the ball to backing way off the line and rolling it in the general direction of the lane.
31: National Museum of Naval Aviation Pensacola, FL
32: Zach's first canoe trip was down the Okatoma (5 years old). He swam, paddled, and told us "go faster" when we were not in the lead. After 3 hours we were at our destination... as soon as we got out of the boat Zach asked if we could do it again.
