started off pretty early! Michael and I have been talking about joining our two front flower beds into one big flower bed, so we started work on that early this morning. I had shown him pictures earlier in the week of some things I wanted so Friday on the way home he stopped at the nursery. So for the first half of the day I was extremely thankful for the cloud cover - it made for a very nice and cool morning for us to work out in the yard!
The kids wanted to help, but mostly ended up playing...of course!
Emma & Addison traced the bear this time instead of one another - you can see how hard I was working in the flower bed by all the dirt on my foot! :D
After we finished up (I still need to get a little more mulch - we underestimated how big it turned out) the boys headed up to East Texas to go fishing with Uncle David (my brother). Aaron was over the top excited!!
He is really getting to be a big boy - it breaks my heart how fast, too!
As soon as they pulled away Emma and I made a quick sandwich for lunch, cleaned up a bit, and hit the pool!! I think we spent about three hours in the water!!
Races may have happened with friends, too!
I swear, kids do not stay on top of the water at all! LOL
I had to go under there with her for a selfie!
(Terrible picture of me, but I had to get a selfie with my best girl! And no, I don't remove my sunglasses outside, even under the water! LOL)
Don't know if she was reaching for me or trying to take my camera! LOL
After we were sufficiently water-logged we headed home, showered, and headed out for Pho...it isn't daddy's favorite place so we always go when he is out of town b/c it is one of our faves!!
After dinner we grabbed a movie from redbox, made a candy run through Walgreens, and came home to veg & relax the rest of our evening! The past couple of hours God's really been putting on a show - we had to go outside and watch for a while! It's really beautiful out there. The entire sky is being lit up! Storms always make me think of sitting on the lake in the house I grew up in with my mother watching the show! We loved to watch the bad weather!
