Landscaping...

Well, the sod has finally been laid and the landscape lighting has been installed. We went ahead and had the front yard landscaping redone while we were at it and it all looks so pretty! Really, there are only a few little loose ends until everything is completely finished.









I am still waiting on a table to arrive before I share final pictures, but our pool builder did a great job and it was all well worth the wait!

A New Swimming Buddy...

A few days ago this little frog jumped right into the pool and the boys spent hours chasing and swimming after this little booger- catching him and then letting him go just to do it all over again! Eventually, Remi put him in the flower bed to 'set him free' in hopes of him coming back to visit again soon...

Adventures at Pop's house...

A visit to Pop's house always seem to hold adventure for the boys. Of course, the first thing they always do is run to the coop to visit the chickens. This trip, they also got a ride on the tractor which was icing on the cake!

Baseball Camp 2017...

The boys just finished up with baseball camp this week. This was their second summer to participate and they always seem to have the best time! The last day, they get to play in the field sprinklers... that is probably the best part!!

A Poolside Ranch...

These two just crack me up. They can be fighting like cats and dogs one minute, the next they have drug their ranch set-up out to the pool, built a poolside ranch and play like there is no one else in the world that matters but each other...

The Boys of Summer

I think when I look back at pictures from this summer, they will all look a little something like this...

Roen's Sharknado Birthday...

This past weekend, we finally got to celebrate Roen's birthday. I feel like I can breathe a sigh of relief. Not only was I not sure the pool would be finished in time, but rain was also forecasted for the exact time of his party. There are still a few things that need finishing up- like laying sod and finishing the drainage system- but to anyone but me, the pool was ready. We heated it up and the rain held off for the entire party- we even got a little bit of sunshine.

Roen wanted to invite the entire Kindergarten and plus family, church and other friends, I think there had to be at least 40 kids swimming around in the pool. He had the very best day with all of his buddies!

Since his 5th birthday, he has been adamant that he have a Sharknado theme for his 6th birthday. The boys love the movies and combined with his love for sharks and the ocean, I am certain this is a party will always remember!



















































A huge shout-out to Tricia who took these pictures and got them to me within 3 days!!!

A Week With Family...

This past week, we have had family in town staying with us. My mom, sister, nephew and niece came to stay with us for an entire week! Although we had a very rainy start to June, we did get several full days of swimming in, and our house feels very empty now. I just love summer, where we can do late lunches, pajamas all day, and lots of time with family!!

Here are some pictures from our week that went by way too quickly...









































Micah's birthday was Sunday, and since we were all exhausted from Roen's party the day before, we slept in and then spent the day swimming and just enjoying the beautiful day. For dinner, Micah finally broke in his new pizza oven. We went to the store and got enough pizza toppings to open a pizza store and then everyone got to make their own pizzas. It was fun and yummy!









I couldn't think of a better way to kick off summer!!
