Who’s Your Suga-Daddy?

So I left the room for oh, 30 seconds and came back to this!!

What could I do but simply capture the moment?!

Finally Swimming!

Okay, so after six straight weeks of swim lessons for Koen, and four weeks for the girls, three of the four Martineau children are now swimming (Braden only thinks he can swim)!!  I can’t tell you how relieved I am!  Koen took his first two-week swim lesson from Ms. Heather and then all three kids went to Ms. Katie for the following four weeks!  I can’t say that having three swim lessons a day was fun for mom, but in the end all of the driving back and forth (thank goodness it was close) and sitting in the “way too hot” heat paid off!  Maddie is quite the swimmer.  She has mastered her butterfly, breast stroke and back stroke.  Now she just needs to teach mom how to swim!  Peyton, oh sweet Peyton!  She finally started closing her mouth and not swallowing all of the water.  The first week she went from throwing up in the pool, to getting out of the pool and doing it on the side!  What a sport!  Oh, but when she finally learned how to hold her breath and to get her rear in the air, she started moving and began swimming!  Koen, was also quite the swimmer!  He was the only one not crying in his class for the first week!  He loves the water and after many “Monkey Walks”, “Kabooms” and “Big Arms and Kicks”, he too is swimming!  Way to go Maddie, Peyton and Koen!

Peyton’s Dance Rehearsal

Peyton had a dance rehearsal and she got a little dance outfit that she was pretty excited about. Here are some pics as well as a video of her rehearsal. She’s a pretty cute kids if I do say so myself.

Well, I’ll get to the video a little later…the kids are calling…


Taking My First Steps!

So, when dad was at work today and only mom was around, I decided to take my first steps!  Not just one, but four!  Mom couldn’t believe it!  I was in the kitchen playing in the cupboards and then just decided to stand up and show off my stuff!  I think I’ll have it down before too long!

We love fire places…


So here is the story…

Brigett and the kids went up to her parents’ cabin. Being the slacker husband that I am I didn’t go with them. To make a long story short, Braden decided to check out the fire place…only problem is that it was very hot. He basically burned his entire left hand and got the finger tips of his right hand. Here are a couple of pics of it as it healed.

More family pics…

We took some family pics last week and we just got them back. You can check them out here:
