Summer swimming

Unlike most parts of the country, living in Florida has caused me to absolutely dread summer!  Who needs a meteorologist when every single day is 93 degrees with a 30% chance of rain with humidity through the roof?!  This year I seem to finally be embracing it, looking forward to all the swimming, grilling & summer get-togethers with friends.  We kicked off Memorial Day weekend with a whole lotta water & fun!

Someday we would LOVE to have a pool, but in the meantime, we're making the most of our backyard with a sprinkler & baby pool & the kids are loving it!

My sweet little swimmer loves to point to my eyes and when I say point to them, I mean, jab her fingers inside my eyeballs.  Ouch!

Since Reese doesn't like the rough Florida grass in her bare feet, she was rocking these very fashionable shoes/socks or whatever the heck they are.

And only at this age are these chunker thighs so adorable!!!

Not only did Cam have a ball in the sprinkler all evening Sunday, but Monday he was a little fish & swam at Matt & Kelly's for at least four hours.  By Monday night, both of my kiddos were out cold in seconds.  Nothing like sun & water to poop you out!

My sister came up to watch the kids on Friday night so we could go out for our anniversary/my birthday & I'm so glad the kids had one-on-one time with her.  If we're around, Reese only wants us, so the only time my family can truly bond with her is when we're out of sight.

I had an awesome birthday!  The Ethiopian restaurant was interesting.. we had a great time, but since we don't get out often, we probably won't go back for a long time.

Saturday morning my parents came up to take Cam to his soccer game & watch him so we could go boating with Lauren.  We headed to an amazingly beautiful island & just relaxed all day long.  It was heavenly.

Who couldn't be relaxed in this environment?!

After boating we hit the marina bar for some gorgeous views, cold beer & live music.

I also tried boiled peanuts for the first time!  The texture took some getting used to, but they were  pretty good.  We did plenty of grilling, relaxing, family & friend time this weekend & having Monday off was spectacular.  I was NOT at all ready to head back to work yesterday morning, but I'm very thankful that I'm off today!  Only two more days & it's time for the weekend again!!

While we were boating Saturday, my little baby boy was playing his heart out on the soccer field!

So much so that he earned the medal for the week!  My sister text me a picture while I laid on the beach & I couldn't help but cry; I'm so proud of my guy!

  1. What a joy it must be to see Reese at an age where she and Cam can run around and play together! Your Pasco Pool is nice, but I can't wait for you to get a real one one day! :)

    Our boating day was a blast!

  2. With Pasco pools, come Pasco baths!
