my little lovebugs

Thought I'd try to (quickly) put up just a few pics from recently...these all made me laugh hard and smile BIG!

My sweet Riley...can't believe she is almost 5!!

we've been doing A LOT of this...I mean every day before nap, after nap, after dinner, whenever...they want to be in the water! Sunscreen and swim diapers run out fast around here.

but it's all worth it to catch fun moments like their expressions...

Blue Fun Dip anyone!?

You know how it goes...monkey see, monkey do...

(yes, she had a black eye, from hitting her face on the pool slide).

                                     and we're snugglin' on the couch when we're not swimming!

Helloooo SUMMER!!!

Just wanted to let everyone know we're still alive and kickin'!! (I had to think about my Blogger password when I logged back in it's been so long.) I went back to work the last 3 weeks of school and that was an adjustment. Not so much leaving behind my kiddos, but having to wrangle 65 kids back into check. To be kind, I should just say that my kids gave my sub a run for her money, chewed her up, and spit her out like a piece of bubble gum! Not good. I'm pretty sure it wasn't a glorious 7 weeks for all involved at school while I was gone, but we all survived the last 3 weeks and managed to get through it with a good ending.

Summer is here and I feel like I just had a summer vacation! We kicked off summer this weekend in high gear with birthday parties and a visit to the Kemah Boardwalk...LOVE this place!! This is something that should be on everyone's "to do" list at least every few months. We haven't been in years ( since before the kids were born) and I vow not to let that amount of time pass again.

We had a blast with cousins...we had a good dinner, let the kids run and play in the water while we listened to live music, they rode some rides, and then enjoyed Marble Slab ice cream...which I'm pretty sure they jacked up the prices bc of the location. ( Yes, two cones and 2 kid cups were $20 bucks!) Oh well, that is how memories are made and we had FUN!!!

                              Cole wiped out more than a few times...those pavers are slick!
                                                                    Reese and Riley

                                                     Misty and Chuck...(love this picture of ya'll!) Somehow I did not get a picture of Lana and JP...
                                                                This little girl (Blayke) is a ham.....

                               I don't think Misty put Ryann down almost the entire time we were there.
