We went to Arkansas in September to meet baby Ben. As always Maddie and Claire enjoyed playing with all their cousins and I enjoyed seeing all of my family. While we were there we had a birthday party for my nephew Evan who was turning 7. We had the party at my mom's house. She lives out in the country, she has lots of land and a swimming pool, so needless to say Maddie had a blast. Maddie even swam by herself. I cannot belive how fast she is growing up.
