Our kiddos recently completed their annual ISR refresher swim lessons. For those of you not familiar with ISR, you can read more about it here in my previous post. But basically, these are awesome swim lessons that help infants, toddlers, and young children learn how to self-rescue in the water. We’ve been doing it since… Continue reading ISR 2018
Hellooooooo!!! I haven’t posted in ages. To be honest, our three bundles of joy that were born in a timespan of 2 years and 9 months have become quite the handful, and it’s been rough the last 6+ months or so. But I don’t want to dwell on that, and did want to share this long overdue… Continue reading Boogie Boy
When I first heard about Great Wolf Lodge last summer, I knew it was a place that I needed to bring our kids! And because Landri, Rex and I just returned from GWL in Grapevine, TX, I thought I’d do a blog post reviewing it for y’all. Also, since I was able to really test… Continue reading Great Wolf Lodge & Underwater Camera Product Review
I’m hoping that this post doesn’t come off as preachy, but water safety is one of my biggest hot buttons when it comes to raising small children, and I really want to share this awesome resource with you guys!

Anyhow, like Blue Hole, Jacob’s… Continue reading TX Hill Country Swimming Holes: Part 2, Jacob’s Well (Wimberley)
It’s summer and this is Texas, and that only means one thing. It is hot. So hot in fact that I woke up to steamed windows at my house this morning and I thought, this is going to be the perfect day to embark on my latest quest! Yesterday, while sunbathing at the pool, I decided… Continue reading TX Hill Country Swimming Holes: Part 1, Blue Hole (Wimberley)
Three little Lehnhoff’s, hangin’ at the pool… floatin’ in their clothes and lookin’ pretty cool! I’ve said this before. As a former swimmer, water polo player, swim coach and instructor, water park and pool lifeguard, and water lover whether it be a pool, river, lake, pond, or ocean, water safety is something that I take very, very seriously. … Continue reading Floaters: Small, Medium & Large
Ty is growing up fast! And while it seems to be passing so quickly, Ty Baby is a little slower at things than his siblings were as babies. I think it’s partly a function of him being the third child and my hands are full with the other two (less one on one time with… Continue reading 9 months: Swimming, Front Teeth & More!
Today, after five weeks of four day/week ten minute swim lessons, Rex has mastered the craft of floating in a body of water wearing clothes, shoes, and a regular diaper! I know it looks a bit extreme, but he still enjoys the water even though these clips I am about to share might make you… Continue reading Rex: Master Floater!
