The long lingering days of constant sunshine are coming to an end.
My back patio that has had bright sunshine to almost 7 is now long
gone by 6. I found this out tonight as I grabbed a magazine out of
the stack of mail to run out there and catch the setting sun. I got
all situated and then it hit me .. the sun wasn't there anymore. big sigh.
I read an article anyway, and I left that damn magazine out there
in hopes I'll get that extra 20 minutes tomorrow. As we are preparing
to get up to 101 this weekend, I know it will be one of the last. The
mornings are cooler, and that hot chocolate I've had nicely tucked in
the back of my pantry needs to make its way to the front again.
As we get sprinkled with our last freckles of the season these next few
weeks, I wanted to share some highlights from our summer of birthdays.
Cake Fights, Bat Races, and the Limbo. Fun times were had. Memories were
made, and fun times were spent with family and friends.
Gage, Jake and Bryan all turned another year older.
Wiser they are, and they make me laugh more then ever.
How ever did they grow up so fast?
Minute to Win It. Have you seen it?
Awesome show and Gage's party was all about some fun games.
How many dice can you stack on the Popsicle stick?
Grab a cookie, put it on your forehead and try and get that into your mouth with no hands. Fun times.
Life is sometimes about sitting afar and watching them have their fun,
and catching those expressions when they don't know your
watching. These are the moments that will stick with ya.
Be sure to Dance even if it's just the limbo.
And when you get cake thrown in your face,
laugh it off.
And don't forget to stop and cherish the most important moments.
Mr. Happiness never fails to turn
our frown upside down.
Bat Races. Close your eyes and spin your head
on that bat and then try to run.
Drunk on chocolate donuts.
Even when you don't know the outcome,
you still gotta go down swingin'.
Smart boy. Taking some time to take it in.
It's nice when we can all get together to
CeLeBrAtE. Mike & Mae.
Bryan checkin' out his goods.
Dad pointing out the features.
Give this boy anything Ben 10 and
its like winning the lottery!
I think he's a happy boy.
Ms Katie adapts well with all these boy
parties. She's a girly girl, but she'll play
in the dirt with the best of them.
Another Summer of fun memories.
Live it up.
