Summer Love

Our first week of summer was so nice.  With not many things planned, we were ready to sleep in and relax a little.  We kicked it off on Sunday afternoon with Lila's softball party at the neighborhood pool.
The girls had cupcakes and pizza...
did a lot of good jumping...
and had a great time with their friends.
While we were at the pool party, Jared and Jackson got invited to the Frisco Rough Riders game with Gavin and his dad.  Since the boys didn't have school the next day, why not?!
It was also my first time back at work in 10 years!  In between taking care of the kids, I've been trying to help Jared get his new office set up.  I worked with him for a few days last week and found out that he's a great boss!
Summer also means that we get to have lunch with Dad sometimes, especially since his office is so much closer now.  Happy kids.  Happy dad.  Happy me.

Madison spent the night a few times with us, too, and got to try out our new floats.  She was a fan of the alligator...
and all three girls loved the angel wings.

When were weren't in the pool, we were going on bike rides around our neighborhood, visiting the library and playing with friends.
On Saturday, we invited Lyndsie, Scott, Andrew and Maria over to swim and cookout fajitas.  We let the kids invite two kids each.  Caden and J played basketball for hours.
The kids jumped off the diving board...
and went down the slide at least 125 times!

It was a beautiful afternoon to be outside.

Cami enjoyed hanging with the big girls immensely.  They took a break from the pool, but then were ready to hop back in before dinner.
After Blake got there, the boys invited Uncle Scott to play Spike Ball with them.

Blake went home after we ate...
and even though the sun was setting, these kids still hadn't had enough water time.

They stayed in the hot tub until it was pitch black outside...

only getting out periodically to do chicken fights.  This little girl even won a round!
The next day had more water fun in store for the girls.  Not only did they swim in our pool before church, but they got to go to Emma's birthday party after church as well. 
My fearless little girl was all over their fast slide.

Happy Birthday to Emma, and Happy Summer to us!
