Playing Catch Up

Already I’m far behind on my resolution to post weekend updates. I’ll never understand how time gets away from me so quickly.

Here are a few pictures of my past few weeks:

With the heat indexes reaching up to 110 degrees around here lately, we’ve been more or less cooped up in the house for most of the day. But occasionally we put on our big kid underwear and brave the temperatures just to say we did and survived. A few weeks ago we went with some friends to the local town center and let the kids splash around in the fountains for a few hours. Fun AND free. These kids have grown up together, from their little itty bitty days. As they’ve gotten older, busier with school and things, summer has become their “quality time”. The day that school lets out they’re asking how soon they can get together. We were happy to oblige.


The two princesses.

Doing the moonwalk.

No, I did not bring swimsuits. No, I did not bring sunblock. But, I DID bring changes of clothes! 1 out of 3 isn’t so bad, right?

The weekend after that, we celebrated Jeremy’s grandmother’s 80th birthday with a luau. Mema is one of my favorite people in the world. Loves margaritas and antiques. Busts her husband’s chops all the time. She’s lived every single one of her 80 years to the fullest, and I pray she has many more.

I love Ashton's crazy little side kick when he throws. He'll be a pitcher yet.

Papa would never let Chloe eat alone.

I've noticed that even in this age group, the men and women separate.

Like third grade all over again.

I don't know how or when this kid got so good looking. Ok, well I know the how. Obviously he got it from his mama.

So far we haven't done anything exceptionally "special". Just little moments that, when added together, somehow create bigger memories. I want to capture it all. I want my kids to remember the little moments, and realize how lovely life can be, even in hot weather. Even in storms. Even on seemingly boring, do nothing days.

What has your summer looked like so far, friends?
