It's beginning to look a lot like summer!

The start of summer...

is such a wonderful thing.

It might just be the best time of year...warmth, sunshine, bathing suits, late sunsets and watermelon...

Does it get any better?

Wait...it does get better...all of the above with good friends!

So, today marks a full week that we've been back home. Back into the groove of everyday life. Ok...groove makes it sound like its easy and everything is flowing. It is going but a work in progress...

We took time today to enjoy the backyard with friends. Jump from activity to activity, run around in bathing suits, play in sand (ok...mud), ride bikes, etc...all the "fun" summer stuff.

We had a little pizza party because the kids started getting really hungry...

But I'm not sure how they really were hungry because they were munching on muffins, watermelon and some chocolate chip cookies. They were also playing hard though! And, I know they were hungry because Gator ate a LOT of pizza!

It was tons of fun...the girls had a blast and by the end of the night they were so very, very, very tired. They keep asking to play with all their friends again tomorrow. It probably won't happen tomorrow but I do have plans to make this a weekly thing with friends. They had SUCH a wonderful time...oh, and they are sleeping...that's the best part!

Happy Summer!

Great pictures! Gator and Peanut are growing so fast!

I can't wait for it to be warm enough here to send my Monkey outside to just play and enjoy summer!
