A two week absence from the blog means this is going to be a picture overload. We are just busy enjoying the warm weather and lots of outdoor activities. Jack wakes up saying "outschide" and fully expects to stay outside until dark. My house has been somewhat neglected and we go through multiple play outfits a day but these summer days are the best and we are enjoying them to the fullest!

Sister is much braver in the pool this year and will go under some. If she doesn't swim at least once a day she doesn't consider it a successful day :)

We go visit my grandparents almost every Wednesday afternoon and the kids love checking out their garden. They like to work in it too. Each one of them have a watermelon plant that they planted and we check the growth every week. Their garden is so beautiful this year. My mamaw says it's the best garden she can ever remember having.

Nightly baths are also a requirement this time of year. I like my babies to be squeaky clean before bed!

She loves her new fancy swimsuit! She looks like a teenager in this picture I know. It's hitting this momma's heart hard.

Baby Bo Bo loves pool time too!

If you need us on the weekends this summer, this is where you can find us. Jack has no fear of the water and goes wide open the whole time. Georgia frolicks like a little daisy and splashes around :) I love how different their personalities are.

Swimming with cousin Bo will be a highlight from this summer for sure!

Sunday we attended Juleah's bridal shower. We called ourselves the loud and rowdy crowd ;) And I got to hold and love on Baby Ben, my day was made! Her shower was so so nice and Juleah looked gorgeous. I can't wait to stand by her side in August.

I looked out our kitchen window one evening while I was cooking supper and saw this. It warmed my heart because my kids have such a wonderful daddy and I loved that Georgia was showing an interest in a sport! Jack was right there too and was hitting it off the tee before the night was through. I love long summer evenings at home just like this one.
Tuesday night I took the kids to a special class at the library for preschoolers. We had a lot of fun and got to see a lot of our friends! Some things are hard about having kids so close in age but it's also nice when they can both participate in the same activities.

Thursday night we found a five foot chicken snake coiled up in one of our planters! He had to be a dead chicken snake because that's too close for comfort being on our porch!

My mom and dad are keeping Bo this week while my sister and brother-in-law are out of town and mom brought him over to play Thursday evening. He turns one next month and they will be moving shortly thereafter. We are savoring every day with him.

This boy is officially potty-trained!! He has been consistently peeing in the potty for about a month now and now he is pooping! I am so proud of him and a huge shout out to Gram, Ma and Aunt Shanna who helped train him at AKK. They are miracle workers!
