Since I last blogged and I apologize. I think it's just the time of year where we are so busy! It's hot, hot, hot out but we're trying not to let that slow us down too much. In the past week we've spent the evenings playing in the shaded driveway and enjoying popsicles. We had a blast at a friend's backyard barbeque, we attended a Water Safari event at the zoo--the boys loved this! The Fire Department brought out a fire truck, hooked it up to the hydrant and sprayed the kids.

Can you believe that they went up 1-2 full shoe sizes EACH since we last bought real shoes (which was in April)?? They're growing like weeds I tell ya! School starts on the 30th and they couldn't be more excited.
So during these last few weeks of summer, we've been filling up the kiddie pools and relaxing out front in the afternoon. I've realized that even with heat index's in the 110 degree range, I can't keep them inside all day long. They get whiny, cranky, and this leads to arguing, hitting, toy stealing, etc. Getting out in the afternoon really helps. And I'll admit, as ''white trash'' as it may be to fill up two kiddie pools, set them out in your front yard (our backyard won't work so we really don't have a choice) with lawn chairs and toys and then add to the fact that my 7.5 month pregnant self is in a bikini---it's worth it. When it's this hot, I don't care what we look like, lol! Taking them to the pool is not an easy feat when it's one adult to 3 kids in a large body of water. And it looks like they are having fun:
Yep, I'm starting to run out of room for her to grow. Hard to believe I have only 7-8 weeks left!
