Taylor Highlight Reel Numero Dos

Kennedy has been enjoying swim lessons for the past three weeks at Asbury College. Their swim team is really good and some of the swimmers teach the camps. The teacher:student ratio is waaaayyy better than what we've had at the Y so she's been getting LOTS of pool time and she's loving it. This week will be her last week and I know she'll be sad but she has learned so much...just in time for our upcoming trip to the beach!

Kennedy and Lily poolside

Look at my big swimmer! So brave!

This past weekend we had some visitors in the Taylor house: Chelsea and her new furry friend Dewey the Goldendoodle. It was SOOOO good to see Chels (as always) and we loved getting to know Dewey too..who doesn't love a puppy?
Isn't he precious?
We Kennedy wore him out good every day!

Chelsea had mailed these sweet matching outfits a while back and the girls wore them while she was here so she could witness the cuteness.
Laura took this picture of me and my sweet Avery at swim while "big sister" was in the water.
Look at that mug!
Sara Beth came over for a play date while Chelsea was here. It was so good visiting. I can't believe they both used to babysit for me and now we are all good friends and one has a kid of her own. Oh my! Here are our sweet babies Ruthie & Avery:
I am so glad that I convinced Elizabeth to come over that day too because all the kids had a big time and we adults just sat on the patio and visited. Props to Elizabeth for venturing out with not one...not two...but all three of her boys!

I bathed Avery in the sink last week while Mom bathed Kennedy in the tub. She looked too cute with her strategically placed rag not to take a picture.

Chelsea is part of the family and just fits right in and rolls with the punches. Kennedy ADORES time with her (as do I). I'm sure Avery will love her just as much as her big sister does.

We got to go out for a fun girls night (thanks to Tim for keeping the babies) to celebrate Courtney's birthday. It was such a good time! Tammy came in from Louisville to surprise Courtney and surprised she was. ;)

I put aside some of the strawberries I had picked at Boyd's just to make this cake. I made it last year for Courtney's birthday and it was so amazing I figured I'd make it again this year for Chelsea's visit and for Tim's birthday too. It was just as delicious the second time around.

Courtney was clearly jazzed about it's reappearance. 

A friend of mine from college (Jentrie) sent me these cute matching dresses for Kennedy and Avery. We snapped some pictures before church on Father's Day Sunday.

If there is anything I can brag on my man is his Daddy skills. He loves his girls and I couldn't ask for a better Father for them. Our power went out at church the morning of Fathers Day. Instead of it ruining the service it gave it a really intimate feel and I loved it. It was really special with the acoustic instruments and singing and I was just thankful to be there. 
Me and my girls.
Check this little cheeser out. She's such a sweet thing...smiling all the time.

I'm officially caught pictures anyway. Hopefully there's no more 50 + picture highlight reels in our near future. Maybe I can get back on the blogging bandwagon. We had our cable disconnected and adjusting to life with a much slower Internet connection has been quite interesting! Thank heavens we can run WIFI off my smart phone..these things are amazing! Now...if they would just cook and clean EVERYONE would own them.


  1. Great pictures and highlight reel! I love it! ;) Such sweet babies and wish I could be there to see Chelsea and have a girls night with everyone! MISS YOU!

  2. We had fun too! let's hang out again very soon! Let's also get Chelsea to move back!

  3. Okay seriously Lindsy... those matching sister outfits are ADORABLE! And I just about burst looking at all those adorable pics. What a little "fish" Kennedy is in that big pool ... and Avery... what a dolly!
