Where Have We Been?

We are right in the middle of a long, busy weekend. We've been so busy over the past few days that I had to take a brief blog hiatus.

We've been growing Chia Pets. And not smiling because it was so hot at Dylan's T-Ball game.

We went shopping and hung out with friends.

We celebrated my great niece, Aubrey's 4th Birthday, with a big party. The kids are so lucky to have so many cousins...many of which are close in age! We only get to see Aubrey every few months, and Dylan and Lexie adore her. Aubrey and Lexie had so much fun having "girl time" while all the boys ran around.

The past week has been really hot, so we headed out to buy a little pool for the kids today. After eating our dinner outside, the kids were thrilled to jump into their new pool. It lasted for about 5 seconds. The water was ice cold!

Dylan was a trooper, and decided to go back in. Once he got over the initial shock, he ended up staying in for a while.

This is as far as Lexie got:

I'm sure that the water will be warm by tomorrow afternoon!

In the next two days we have a memorial day picnic to attend, a birthday party to go to, a visit to the zoo planned, and a T-Ball game! We're looking forward to having a lot of fun!

*While you enjoy your cookouts, cold drinks, days on the lake, and day off of work remember those who serve and have served. Remember those that gave the ultimate sacrifice for YOU. Remember them. Honor them. Thank them.*

  4. Looks like they had a blast!

    We had that pool last year but it had a leak in it from the start and it was really hard to keep the walls up. This year we bought the inflatable one for $25 from Walmart and it's AWESOME! (ok, actually I got this one from Target, but it's the same thing!)
