Summer Days

Summer. Isn't it supposed to be "lazy" and slow?

So far, it has been anything but.

Sophie is lifeguarding at the pool on post.

Olivia is job hunting and helping with the little ones.

I actually have eight piano students!

Here's some pictures of our "down time":

I love my kids imaginative play.

Here we have Prince Philip rescuing Dora from her dollhouse in the bucket of Jack's firetruck.

Strawberry Jam

Olivia is now sweet 16!
Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Cupcakes were a huge hit!

The backyard kiddie pool has been a frequent fun spot.

See what I mean?

Relaxing in the pool!

While the kids are splashing, the mom sits in the shade with coffee and knitting needles!

I got a free basket for my bicycle at a yard sale. I love it!
The grocery store is exactly one mile from our house.

Now I can ride there for that something that ran out.

She really likes brushing her teeth!

One picture just wasn't enough!

My sister and her family joined us at Busch Gardens last weekend.

They are waiting for the fun to begin.

The engineer on the train gave Jack his hat after he lifted him into the engine and showed him how he drives the train!

She is too agile! She is climbing on everything. I spend a lot of time removing her from dangerous situations.

And that, my friends, is all I have for now.

  1. That bike basket is fantastic! How I wish I only lived a mile from the grocery store...actually I probably am almost that close to the commissary, but Fort Hood is not safe for walkers/bikers. Love the pics! Too bad I can't sit with you in your back yard and knit while our kids play together. =)
