Summer Fun

So, I am obviously not the best blogger.  It has been several weeks since I posted last.  We have been having so much fun this summer, though, that I really haven’t had the time.  So here is a look at some of the things that we have done so far this summer. IMG_2928



I purchased a little blowup pool at WalMart.  The kids love it and I enjoy having the opportunity to sit outside and get some sun, without having to constantly be in the pool.

Until we experienced the horribly oppressive southern heat that we have felt this week, we have just spent a lot of time playing outside.  I found this little tee set at Target and Mikayla has a lot of fun with it.  We haven’t been out as much during the day the past week or two.  The 95 degree heat is a bit of a deterrent, but we have taken advantage of the slightly cooler evenings and the summer time excuse to stay up a little later.  IMG_2973 IMG_2975 Mikayla has also been doing gymnastics this summer.  I don’t have any great pictures yet, because they don’t let the parents in there until the last day of the session ( which is Monday!).  Gavin is pretty good about hanging out in his stroller until her class is done.  He is so cute when you take a picture of him now.  As soon as you pull the camera out, he stops, looks at the camera, and says “Cheese!”.  It is so darn cute.

Okay, so I will try my best to be better at updating everyone with the comings and going of our family.  There is only about 2 1/2 months before Mikayla starts her last year of preschool.  :(

Gavin looks like he could be 14! He's so handsome! We bought a new pool this year too, our wal mart one didn't last through the winter so I went to k-mart for a replacement. =P Glad everyone's enjoying summer!
