I love finding these!

Also, she's referring to Sharpies.
I returned them after a recent confiscation. 
Not sharps, like a needle with a syringe.
That would be a bad idea. :)

Pool time!

I LOVE when it's a little cooler and the pool clears out. :)
We've been swimming a lot lately and having a blast!
(And by "we", I mean "the girls". I don't get in. 
My optimal pool day is sitting in the sun and staying dry.)

She's tall enough to do the big waterslides this year!

Being silly with friends.

Yesterday, we had the pool to ourselves for nearly an hour!
Can you spot Alice?

We just finished up a round of lessons for both girls.
Alice wants to be on the swim team, so she worked on the backstroke,
freestyle, treading water for a few minutes, diving, and even retrieved a 10lb brick from 6'!
She has surpassed my swimming abilities.
She LOVES swimming and I love watching her!

Clementine is getting close!
She would rather chit-chat and play princesses with her instructors than actually swim.

Birthday fun!

For my birthday,
we went swimming, 
then my homeschool moms group threw a brunch for me, which was AWESOME!!!,
(and I'm so sad I didn't take any pictures!)
Then, we went out to dinner, too!
It was a really great day.

To me, any day I don't have to cook is a good one.
I think I went 3 days without cooking!
Happy Birthday to ME!

On Saturday, I spent the entire day with my sisters-in-law!
Over Easy for breakfast, walking around the Broadmoor, lunch at Ivywild,
went to see some amazing photography at an art studio, chai at a fun coffee shop,
then dinner at Shugga's. It was such a fun day!
We tried to take a picture with the beautiful rainbow. :) 

Ben also signed us up for a painting class!
It was really fun and now the girls think we are amazing artists. Ha!

Now, we're sitting at a coffee shop while our girls are spending the weekend with Nana and Grandpa!
Happy Birthday weeks to me!
I feel so loved!
