First Swim

We are enjoying the pool! So glad to have it for the summer and future summers.

Hannah was the first one in. She has a softball tan.

And then Colton. He has a baseball tan.

Both kids are still playing ball. After this week, Hannah will be done and Colton will be done after next week. Hopefully in July we can really start enjoying being off.

The Vinyl Pond

On Wednesday we had our new above the ground swimming pool installed. I wanted to take more step by step pictures during installation but I didn't want to make the guys putting it up feel weird.

It took over 24 hrs to fill it with water. Brent put the chemicals/salt in on Friday morning and we got in that night. It felt so nice. We are going to put a deck around it later on down the road.

I'm off today and tomorrow, yea, so I'm taking advantage of the free time to get some sun on my blinding white legs. I have also discovered I no longer can just shave the lower half of my legs anymore :)!!!

I'm A Great Aunt Now

This past weekend Colton & I made a fast trip to Seabrook, Tx to see the newest addition to the family, Aiden James.

He is the sweetest thing. He likes to eat, poop & sleep. You know, like most babies do :)

Here he is with his Grandma who is officially BeBe now. She's to young to be a Grandma.

It seems like yesterday when Colton was this little. Aiden is Colton's (and Hannah) first official "2nd" cousin.

And finally with his Momma. She is such a good little Momma & so is his Daddy. Sorry Shea. I never got a picture of you with him.

We had a great visit. It was nice to get away even if it was fast & furious. We are having a family baby shower for them in July so that is going to be fun to plan. I have a list started of things to do but I'm waiting until after this weekend to really dive in deep. We are hosting my family reunion so we (and by we I mean Brent) has been getting things ready on the outside. I'll start cleaning on Thursday. I made the announcement to the kids this morning that they are responsible for the upstairs. They took it better than I thought but they are sorta being nice because we are putting in an above the ground pool tomorrow. And by we I mean the installion guys are putting it in :)

Memorial Day 2010

Enjoyed the day hanging around the house. We had a shrimp boil for supper. It was yummy. Luke let us share is bday gift, the slip n slide.

Hannah got her brother's old swim trunks.

Ben came down spitting out more water than was on the slide.

Hannah and Luke had red knees.

And this guy showed up after everybody had left. I hope we don't have a summer of rattlesnakes.
