In the past week, Payton has been to a wedding, she has been wedding dress shopping, and tomorrow will go to her first funeral. My good friend Leigha lost her father last week, so Halley, Payton, and I traveled to Waterloo, IA to attend the visitation and funeral. Leigha has been such a blessing to my life, and Halley and I cherish the time we get to spend with her. She is such a great friend to us, and has blessed our family in so many ways.
Even in this sad time, Payton has brought us great joy - which is such a blessing. Since we were spending the night in Waterloo, we decided to stay at a hotel that has a pool, so that Payton could experience swimming for the first time. I knew she would love it since she loves her bathtime, so we packed her swimsuit and decided to give it a shot. How cute is she in this!
Here are a few more pictures as she explored her swimming capabilities!

Payton was pretty tired when we were all done, but she had a great time!
