4 Reasons to Smile

1. Alyssa

2. Halle

3. Carter

4. Kate

Nothing like a sardine sandwich sleepover in a blanket fort.

There's a tea party going on in the backyard and it's a black tie affair.

Whirlpool city in my very own backyard.

Be sure to wear your life jacket in the 24 inch deep water. Wouldn't want to take any chances. (Actually Carter practically refuses to get in w/o his life jacket. He's afraid he'll drown he says. But at least he's letting himself float around; that's improvement. Before I know it, he'll be brave and swimming like a fish.)

I'm just feeling really lucky tonight to have these 4 little gems as my kids.

Does this post need a disclaimer after the night you've had??

And look at all there is to do in your backyard! We don't have a flat surface anywhere to put stuff like that. My girls have to make do with the neighborhood pool...or the creek!

Your kids are adorable!

I've been looking at those pools on craigslist for at least 2 weeks. Now I want one even worse!

I miss having the pool in our backyard, it is such a production to go to the community pool. Looks fun and I want to come play too.

oh how I've missed you! I have just felt absolutely overwhelmed by blog reading lately. I miss everyone, I just can't seem to find 3 hours to do it the way I used to. But you can guarantee I'll be checking in on you every day again.

Love what you've been up to. Send hugs to those kids of yours from us :)
