We have only had a few weeks of summer but we are LOVING it! We can't get enough...sleeping in, staying up late, swimming, and lots of friend time!! YAHOOO!!!!
A few weeks ago we were doing some yard work and the kids were playing together! Mark decided to take a break and play a little hop scotch with Sis. ;) It's the little sweet moments like this that I want to freeze in my memory FOREVER!
This was the first swim of the season. It was a few weeks ago and the water was FREEZING!!! They didn't care...it's as if they didn't even skip a day of swimming...and I love it!!!
A dear friend of mine past away recently and I spent a few days in Jackson with these awesome friends. It had been way too long since we had all been together. We spent 2 days enjoying each others company while remembering our dear friend. It was a reminder to be thankful for each day...and also a reminder that no matter how many miles, children, jobs, etc keep us separated some friends are forever. I couldn't be more thankful for mine.
This girl...no words needed.
We celebrated Wyatt turning 6 with family a friends. He wanted a Scooby Doo party and that's what he got!! ;) It was so fun!!
Caroline (and Kelley and Tyler) we going to be out of town on the day of Wyatt's party so Kelley took off work and we celebrate Wyatt together! We had so much fun spending the morning together. Wyatt loved it...and so did Sis and I!! ;)
After a weekend of lots of swimming, partying, and late summer night we were all SUPER tired! I snapped this picture one day before lunch. LOL! For a little girl who doesn't take naps she was worn out!! We love SUMMER!!!
Later that afternoon the kids and I needed a pick me up...we picked something we can all agree on...Smoothie King!!! We love that place so much!!!
Mark's mom bought the kids a board game the other day. It was something Wyatt saw on T.V. and had told Maw Maw about. Go figure! He is a total sucker for commercials and she is a sucker for him! LOL!!! Once we got home and settled and were about to play "Googley Eyes" the "right" way we had SO MUCH FUN!! We did have to improvise a little because they can't read but it was still so cute! Totally a fun family game night game....;)
My sister is 35 weeks pregnant so the kids and I decided to spend a few days in Jackson last week. Wyatt had another b-day celebration with my family. My mom always does a themed dinner and this year it didn't disappoint!!! One of the days we were there I picked up my 2 nieces from day care early...It was a surprise and the LOVED IT!! I have to say...I did too! I get to spend time with my sister and her girls together but to get these 2 littles all to myself was so fun! I love the relationship we have and can't wait to see how much it continues to grow through the years!!!
When I say my mom goes all out I wasn't lying...this was the table for dinner the night we celebrated Wyatt!!
While we were all outside playing we had surprise visitors!! My sister posted about how it's no wonder we love to entertain/have parties as much as we do...we get it naturally I guess!!! LOL!!!
This weekend Mark's cousin asked Wyatt and Sloane to be in her wedding. The are so excited and Sloane even asked if she could do her "diva walk" down the aisle. We have her dance studio to that for that comment. LOL!!!
A few pool pictures....
