Just so you know what we've been up to lately,
besides building. And nailing. And painting.
You must know that I freakin' love summer.
If summer were a man, I would marry it.
And Mr. Summer would be hot.
And this summer's a bit spee-ecial, since my eldest and my niece were baptized together:
And ya know,
I just might regret dressing my son in a pimped out peach suit for such an occasion. Might.
And for the record, no one knows how to smile for pictures past the age of 4 in my family.
there's been cousin time.
Lots of awesome cousin time. The aforementioned Pirate Treasure Hunt:
After which we all did the Truffle Shuffle.
(Note to self: kids don't want socks. No kids want socks.)
And for this year's ride-fest, we bit the bullet and took our little ones.
And I'm so glad we did. Wow. What a delight my baby girl was. Pure joy.
She spread her joy wherever she went.
Summer can stay here as long as it dang well wants to, as far as I'm concerned.
