Summer Fun

(Don't pay attention to any other part of the pic- this doesn't look a thing like her, but it shows her teeth!)

While looking through my pictures, I realized I never posted on these beauties. I took them two weeks ago and intended on posting them, but time got away from me. Well, actually, school started and I'm swamped...and will be until at least October.
During the school year, we both work full time so the weekends are incredibly special to us. Our social lives get put on hold (yeah, I know, we DO have social lives....really, we do!), we don't see family as much as we'd like to, we don't get to do fun things (brewing, knitting, taking pictures...) and we're exhausted from the busy demands of the week. In other words, we're just like every other working family :) If you have little kids now, or ever had little kids, you know exactly what I'm talking about. Always too much to do and not enough time to do it. So when theses small moments creep up on me, I try my hardest to capture them to share with all of you, since we're not always available to share them with you in person.

Anyway, back to the end of wasn't particularly hot (which is unusual), but we dragged out the mini pool and spent an afternoon playing in the water. Adaline LOVES it! She climbs in and out in and out in and out, then sits down and plays. Then calls the dogs over to play. Then calls the cat over to play.

 Here, Adaline is showing me how her elephant (aka- "Alphnt") can spray water.
I savor every moment I get to spend with this precious little girl.
Here's to a few more warm-weather weekends!

Speaking of elephants -- I am loving Adaline's elephant bathing suit!
