Photos On the 2nd Day of Summer…

 

(I originally had all of this planned for the 1st day of summer- only to find out that I missed it by a day! Rats!  Isn’t it usually on the 21st?  Am I crazy?  Also, I wrote this on Thursday, in case you are confused.  I am over-thinking this one.  Carry on!)

On the 2nd day of summer, we went to swimming lessons

(remember a few weeks ago when I said that I wanted to quit because I was tired of lessons?  Well, here we are at Level 3…I told you my mom-guilt was strong!)

And then to a splash park, to appease those of us who didn’t get to swim (Isaac.)  Along with every other child in our not-that-big-of-a-town!

We ate a picnic that I was feeling pretty good about

until the family next to us pulled out their sushi and pea pods.

We created a mountain of dirty laundry,

I got a little bit more sun on my shoulders.

And my vacuum is broken anyway- so why clean up?

So here I sit with itchy shoulders,

a messy house

and a glass of iced tea.

Oh, and NO IDEA what we are having for dinner tomorrow.

also, I like your new header! Are you going to have pictures there from now on??

Robyn said...

Love the new look!!!! PS, so I know where you buy all of your clothes, where did you find those swim shorts????

Robyn- I don't mind if you copy all my kids clothes! :) I take it as a compliment! We LOVE these swim shorts- my boys love how they are shorter so when they are wet they don't weigh them down, and I love them b/c I know in a few years they will be too embarrassed to wear them! They do tend to fade a bit, but the boys don't notice.
I get them from Mini Boden, here is a link

and your sister's website often has coupons for extra %'s off and free shipping!

Love the new look. Wonderful, wonderful.

Robin covered my question about swim clothes. Love Joseph's swim shorts.

The kids will remember the fun days and swim lessons. They will not remember the laundry and the broken vacuum.
