OUTSIDE...

is where we've been...all day...every day this week (excluding naptime)! I LOVE summer. I wish it could be like this year round. I am not even sure what the point of winter is other than so that whole "seasons of life" analogy will work out for the occasional funeral. See what I mean...funeral=winter, its just so depressing. Summer though is warm and happy and begs for us to spend our days outdoors among God's creation where He intended us to be! (hence why He created paradise as a garden...outside!)

Anyway, you get my point. I love being outside and I love when it is warm enough that being outside can include anything with water. I am a water lover. Guess it's a good thing my astrological sign is Cancer! My daughter is following right along in her momma's size 6 footsteps. Not only does the child have small feet, she LOVES outside and more so playing in water. Any type of water. We had a blast the other night just watering the flowers together. Keaton loves it too but he would rather play Johnny Daredevil and slide down the slide of the pool in any direction he can contort his body into. This kid is incredible. We just put together our swingset, which have ladders on both end and monkey bars that run along the top, and we found the kid hanging on the first rung of the monkey bar the other night. Yes, I got him down with no issue and he hung on til I got him down but still. Sheesh kid! Needless to say, we will be boarding up the ladders here soon!


Here are pics from some of out outdoor adventures!


The girl with the most popsicles always wins!


Our new addiction...homeade Gatorade popsicles...



Keaton stopping what he is doing to say..."Wisten...wha is it?"
A rare moment of sharing actually captured...
This is my little man's hair right now...doesn't it just rock you!Look at the way it glistens in the sunlight...
Adam & Bethany were in town last weekend for a wedding. Uncle Adam entertained us while sis danced to the rhythm of the beat...


Adam & Bethany off to the wedding...aren't they just the cutest?

My two LOVE the outdoors too! Its hard to wrangle them in when we have to. They can play for hours out there so contently! I am looking forward to the summer so we can have more time out there and check out some more parks. Its getting warmer here, but not enough for water fun - soon though! Oh...I'll have to get a set of those popsicle makers...I'm sure they'll love them when its hot out!

You take the most fabulous photos.

I saw those popsicle stick holder thingies at Linens 'n Things last week and almost bought them, now I'm going back to get them.
