Summer here we come!

Summer is my second favorite season of the year. It's actually a close second to fall. I just love the laid backness of summer. The laziness of it. The fun of it. There is always a trip planned which allows us to get away for a bit and just enjoy each other. No work schedule, no planned activities, nothing.. just family.

This summer I really do want to enjoy the time I have with the kids. Because starting August 16th at least one if not two of my babies will be gone during the day. I asked Jon Kent the other day what all he wanted to do this summer. And he gave me quite a list. Some of it's simple, some of it's silly and some of it are things that he has been asking to do for awhile now. I have written most of it down and I am really hoping we get to do most of it, if not all of it. I am actually looking forward to a lot of it myself!!

And since summer is almost here, the weather has been warming up. Thankfully. It's been pretty hot a lot of days this month so far. The kids have enjoyed it though, because it meant they got to play in their pool. Although, Jon Kent really isn't a fan of swimming. He doesn't like to be cold he says. Even when the water really isn't all that cold. He rather just roam around in the yard and play. He gets that from his daddy. His daddy doesn't like to swim or get wet. The water would have to be at least 95 for him to enjoy getting in a pool. Zoey and Nathan though, they love it. Could stay there all day. Especially Zoey. She is my little fish.

Baseball season is slowly coming to an end. I have to say, it hasn't been very enjoyable. Jon Kent and Zoey aren't really into it. They keep asking if they "really have to go". I loved baseball/softball. I played from 4-16 years old. But apparently my baseball blood doesn't run in their veins. Nathan really seems to like it though, so maybe that's were all my baseball genes went. It also could be the league we chose to play in. They aren't very organized. It makes it hard to teach the kids to actually play when they are making it so easy for them. Teach them to play by the rules. None of that pansy stuff. My opinion, of course.

And lastly, here are some pictures of random happenings around here. Most of pool time and then of my Mother's Day presents. Enjoy! :)

Summer is my least favorite season being in South Florida....our summer heat and humidity are awful! We just bought a pool for the kids yesterday, so hopefully that will help keep us cool! Great Mother's Day Gifts!!

You know, summer used to be my least favorite season. But as I get older, I'm like you...I totally enjoy the lazy, mellow, days.

Summer rocks! I'm sooo looking forward to it this year!
