looking back.

looking back at old, or not really that old, beach photos i was overwhelmed with gratitude for what we have in this big family of ours. every summer we are truly blessed to reunite the cousins into what feels like a week of one big party. swimming, eating, more eating, hippo cookies, giggles, baseball on the beach, talent shows, and cousins just getting to be together. it really is amazing, and i am just so incredibly thankful. 
boy i can not wait to be back there soon. the more the merrier! pretty soon we're going to need to rent our own beach. ha!


off to the first day of sports/summer camp. good thing its only one week, b/c i miss these guys already. they are just too much. 
good thing i know they are probably having the time of their lives shooting arrows, swimming and playing any number of sports. dec is one proud backpack wearing dude. 
so for one week its going to be really quiet around here. just me and mike.

summertime is here.

so its officially summer around here. ruby graduated kindergarden, the pool opened, and we stocked up on popsicles and delicious fruit. its great to have a little freedom, less car time and more pool time. 
now, lets get that baby out!!!!!
