So far...

...we have had a BUSY summer!
We have:
* been to the beach for a week
* A and R have gone to one VBS with their cousin M
* A and R have had a week's worth of swimming lessons
* A and I went to church camp for 3 days
* 2 storytimes at the library
* 3 of M's (nephew) AllStar games
* 1 weekend trip to a beautiful Hotel not too far away for Daddy's sales' meeting
(we got to swim, see a bird show, play in the hotel, cookout, and meet new friends)
* 1 afternoon at a nearby pool with waterslides, lazy river, etc. with friends from church
* several other days swimming at our neighborhood pool and our aunt and uncle's pool
* read lots of books
* learned how to play the Wii (Daddy's gift for Father's Day)
and so much more.
We are having a great summer so far. We are staying hot and loving every minute of it. We have lots of plans for the remainder of the summer...we just hope that it slows down a little bit more. We wish it could last forever. Hopefully I will get the camera out some and get some good summer photos for you!

Okay, here are more pictures that I promised. This summer M was big enough to play in the sand and the ocean for the first time. Last summer she was almost 3 months old when we went to the beach. She loved it! However, the first day it was double red flags, so you will notice everyone standing at the edge of the water. By the end of the week it was a yellow flag, but I tired of taking the camera in the sand. ENJOY!!!

Getting ready to jump into the wave...
my nephew, K, cute!
M checking out what Grammy is doing.
B doing what he did best this!
Granddaddy helping the kids build a wall to jump from.

Grammy and R walking to the beach to take pictures.

The best shot we could get of the 5 of us....maybe next year we can all look at the same time.
My sister, C, brother-in-law, M, and nephew, K.
We had a great time! I am going to upload some more in a few minutes.

More pictures....

Here is the best shot on my camera of the 6 grandkids on my side of the family. B decided that he was just not into getting his picture made this day. He is such the funny one...he kept me laughing all week long.
M and Grammy looking out at the ocean.
M and Grammy giving each other some lovin' cute.
Best Friends...need I say more?
Me and my girls...not thrilled with the shot of myself, but this is my life...I will miss the day when they don't want to hang all over me anymore. I DREAD that day!
Just missed getting M out of the water...she didn't care though...she loved it!
Can you see why this one has had 3 ER trips and one overnight in the hospital in the 10 days prior to leaving for the beach. She could care less that I continually asked her not to do this.
Uncle M and K.
Daddy and M enjoying her new float.

A enjoying someone else's float!
M and Mommy cooling off in the pool.
What a great time we had. I am hoping to get copies of pictures from my sister and sister-in-law. When I do, I am sure that I will post some of theirs. I know they had some from our time spent riding go-carts and bumper boats. Enjoy!

We're Home...

We got home from the beach Satuday afternoon and have been going non-stop since then. I have finally gotten around to uploading the pictures to the computer, but have not really sorted through them yet. I will leave you with 2 of my favorites that I noticed right off the bat.

First, is one of my 3 girls heading to the water. We were out taking pictures one night and I thought this was just precious.

The second is of our girls with their Daddy! PRICELESS!!!

I will post more pictures as soon as I sort through them all!
