Fun Days of Summer

Wow, I cannot believe we are already in August!! (that means I get another year older this month and I am less than 100 days away from having a sweet baby girl in my arms!!) ...I have a lot to do!!!

Anyway, we have been having lots of fun this summer so I thought I would share some of our favorite things to do! The boys love playing in the pool!! They would prefer a nice big pool, but you get what you get! When we get the pool out they could literally play for hours! We didn't get to play in it as much in July because it has been so hot, but hopefully when it cools down a little bit, we will get back at it. They ask everyone they talk to if they have a pool and if so can they come use it! A bit embarrassing, but it gets us a few pool invites from people! ;)

They love to play on their "skape boards." Doesn't matter what you tell them, that is what they are called!! :)

Spider-Man!! (You can't tell in the pic, but the lenses fall out of these googles all the time so we just left them out. He doesn't care...he just thinks he is spider man when he wears them!)

Luke is doing such a nice job of "washing" Cade's hair.

Our next favorite event of the summer was a family water balloon fight!! We were out walking one night, and saw another family in our neighborhood chasing each other around the yard having a water balloon fight. I thought it was such a great idea and I knew the boys would love it! They ask several times a week if we can have another water balloon fight. If it didn't take so darn long to fill all the balloons up with water, we would do it more often!

The boys couldn't believe they could actually throw the balloons at someone! It took them a minute to get the hang of it!

"Can I really throw this at daddy??"

BTW - I did get in on the action too!! I took a few minutes out to take some pics, but thats it. I wasn't missing out on all this fun!! :)

And our latest summer adventure was playing in the rain. I have been wanting to let the boys play in the rain all summer, but it is always thundering and lightening. We finally had just a rain storm so we let them loose. They thought it was the coolest thing to be able to play in the rain and they had so much fun!

We decided to get rid of the shirts!

Don't they look like they are having a blast...even the big boy?!!

I did not get in on this action, but I will next time. After they got done, they asked me if I would play in the rain with them the next time we did it and of course I said "yes!!" I just may look slightly like a beached whale running around in the rain....but oh well!! :) Hope you all are enjoying your summer as much as we are!!
