I love summer!

I'm not the mom that dreads dealing with her kids during summer.  I love it (mostly).

Here's our summer thus far:

Walk-in Saturday night movies, in the center across the street.
Viewing that night was Top Gun. 
 A race.
Random funny seen at a race expo.
Traditional Last day of school ice cream dinner.


Kenny had his end of year performance with his Drama crew.

If anything, this evening proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that this boy is FILLED
to the brim with drama. 

 Holden waited patiently during a dental checkup for his brothers.

We went to a baseball game.
It's a big deal when you let a lady wear your hat... 

 Hubband and I celebrated 8 years of marriage.
S'mores creme brûlée.  With homemade marshmallows.
Holy crap. 

Sneak attack picture.
And sangria. 
 The boys try to convince me they really ARE twins.

Highlights Top Secret Adventures has proven to be a brilliant move on "Santa's" part. 

We saw a movie and had the theater (mostly) to ourselves.
Bonus of privately schooling your kids?
They get out two-three weeks before the county.  YES! 

Spent several days at the pool.

The big boys spent a weekend camping with daddy for Father's Day.

So, Holdeezy and I spent the weekend doing what HE wanted.
"I want to jump!"

Then he wanted to "Buy a shirt, eat a mammich, and ride my bike". 

So we ate a mammich.

Rode his bike.
(The shirt he is wearing is the one he bought.)

Then, we spent more time at the pool.

Enjoying food fresh off the grill.

Tragedy struck:
Strep.  Pink eye. Ear infections.
Boom.  One week of summer disappears. 
 I've been working on DIY projects.
Pottery Barn version of this cost $280
Yeah... I've spent $40

Pink! Girly! Yay!  Testosterone, stay away! 

Pet the pig.

Taking a few minutes outside to eat some frozen Kefir before a T-storm rolls through.

General shenanigans.

More master bath DIY.
I'm SO close to being finished - I'll post pics when completed.  

It's only been 26 days, but it's been AWESOME so far.
