I have been a horrible blogger this week. I'm not sure why, I just haven't felt the urge to blog. Taking a break is okay sometimes, right? So the pictures I am sharing today are from the last 2 weeks, which have been busy around here.
I am linking up with Jeannett:
I love when this one climbs into my lap to cuddle. Luckily I had my phone nearby to capture a sweet picture. She doesn't sit still often.
Both girls are really into playing with babies. They also love when we see real babies out and about. They are sorta obsessed with a friends newborn too. Yikes!
We have had some really nice weather lately. Warm most of the day, but we have had some thunderstorms and rain too. Luckily we have been able to hit up the small and big pools this week. I have no idea what she was doing in this picture. I'm pretty sure she was just checking out her hair when she dipped it in the water.
Every blogger and their brother is using this new app called a beautiful mess. I allows you too add text and graphics to the pics you take with your phone. It's super fun.
Dixie and her brother Baxter celebrated their 7th birthday on the 20th. There might be a party in their future, and cake.
Last Saturday we held the 4th
annual Memorial Golf Tournament for my Dad. He was killed in a car accident in August of 2009. I really haven't written a post about it all because I feel like my words will not be good enough to explain the awesome person he was. We had a great turnout and a successful tourney.
More fun with the A Beautiful Mess app.
Like I said earlier, we got the pool up and running and the girls enjoyed the balmy 70 degree water temp. That number doesn't sound so bad, but after a bit their lips were blue and teeth chattering.
Poor Daddy had to join in on the fun. Mommy still hasn't ventured in. It doesn't help that our temps are supposed to be in the 60's this weekend. Brrrrrr
These girls crack me up.
Ya'll I am nervous about this. Any of you who know my husband in real life know that he had an affinity for anything to do with fire, fireworks, blowing stuff up as a teenager. He and his friends were ridiculous. So it definitely worried me a bit when Ave found the sparklers and knew exactly what to do with them and wasn't scared a bit. Geesh.
On Sunday after the golf tournament we went on a family walk with friends that were in town. I feel like every time I go along it turns into a hiking disaster. Avery was a grump and Lily decided to give up on walking about 15 minutes in. Ave wanted nothing to do with me so poor Nathan was stuck doing this.
Back at the car and after a snack they were feeling a little bit better.
Lily had a park and picnic day at school this week. School is over for the summer next Thursday so it was nice to get one last glimpse of her playing with her school friends. It was very cute. I am so excited for her school program next week. I might just pass out from the cuteness.
I am trying really hard to get back on the band wagon. Why does exercise have to be so stinkin hard?
And it doesn't help that we have a date night and eat stuff like this. Those are fried pickles. So delicious.
I promise to try to get back to blogging regularly.
We are still thinking about the families that were affected by the tornadoes in Oklahoma. I can't even imagine the devastation that they are having to deal with.
Have a good holiday weekend!
