So these random pics pretty much sum up our summer. If you follow me on facebook then you've probably seen a few of these. But I wanted to make sure I post them here since I am sooooo awesome at posting pics on my blog
. Maybe I'll get their 3rd birthday pics up here soon. Maybe.
|It was the perfect recipe though in terms of number of ingredients. Plenty of opportunity for both kids to pour, stir, and pick out all the chocolate chips and raisins.|
|Ryan watched Wimbledon for one day and now he is convinced he is a tennis player. So my wonderful hubby went to Academy and got the kids oufitted with real tennis rackets and headbands. OH MY.|
|Also handy dandy to use as a guitar.|
|Their sweet soccer goal. Q would like to play soccer. This thrills me to no end. I am definitely signing both of them up at the Y for fall soccer this year --- can't wait!|
|3 year olds are camera shy. They thought they were hiding from me in this picture. It's a NET, guys. I can see you. And you are adorable.|
|And even the grown ups love the splash portion. And I love this man :)|
|Q just chilling. She always wears her sunglasses like a little diva.|
|The kids also got their picture in Katy Magazine along with a quote from me. I guess it helps that I write for them and know the editor but whatever. It's always fun to see your kiddos "published". (Picture by Kendra Martin Photography)|
|This is also a new summer thing. I am baking. WHAATT??? I.am.not.a.baker. But I came across these bundt cakes and I have been kinda obsessed with making them. It makes no sense at all because with 4 eggs, I really can't even taste the darn thing. But Matt seems to like it and every week recently he's brought the leftovers up to the office. This was a rainbow sprinkle one I made for the kids' official birthday. They liked it too. I've probably made 7 or 8 and I've only screwed up one. Not bad.|
So that's a portion of our summer in pictures. I have to admit, I was pretty negative at the beginning of the summer. I mean, I detest the heat. And I was worried about what I was going to do with the kids all day long when clearly you can't play outside for hours on end. But now that we've discovered I can take them to the pool and not have anyone drown, the arrangement of multiples playdates, baking/cooking time, book reading, coloring, and lots of forts --- it's actually been pretty darn fun. Not going to lie about it though --- we have spent a couple of days just watching "Up", "Nemo" and "Monsters, Inc" multiple times. Everyone needs some downtime every now and again. And if I could stop crying at the beginning of "Up" every.swinging.time, that would be great.
Hope y'all are having a great summer!
