time to play catch up

Sooo, I've been slacking in the blog department. What can I say? Summer is in full swing which means we've got swimming and movie watching to do. And oh yeah, a little cleaning and such. Since I haven't written in a week, this post is gonna be a random collection of news and thoughts. Please try to contain your excitement.

First of all, I just need to say that the Twilight series has RUINED my taste in books for life! No other books seem to compare and hold my attention anymore. I think I hear Luke breathing a sigh of relief right about now seeing as how this means I'll be spending less time reading and more time housemaking...since that's what I am these days. A homemaker. It's a big job but one of us has to do it.

In fact, I feel like this series was so good and well written that I need to put them on display somewhere. Sad, I know. And pathetic too come to think of it. Don't worry, though, I am refraining from using them as decorations in our house. Feel free to breathe a sigh of relief too.

Moving on. Last Saturday night we enjoyed a D-E-licious dinner with my family. We saw some old friends and familiar faces. Do you know what I love about living in San Antonio? This is where my roots are and every once in a while, I run into someone that has been a part of my life in some way. Thus, allowing me to take a walk down memory lane. Always a joy, except for when it's not. Luckily, I haven't had too many of the not so fun experiences which is why I still enjoy living where I was raised. Claire and I took a couple of pictures to document the quality family time and fun had by all...

In the words of Fergie..."G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S" :)

Ready for church

Remember how Luke had trade days last week? Well. Lucky for him, he had some landscaping stuff to take care of and guess who his partner in crime was? Yep. Little A. It was so sweet to watch the Father/Son bonding going on in the backyard. I thought maybe you would enjoy it too so here you go.

You can thank me later. :)

We also bought Austin a little pool and he wore. himself. out. He was too cute to watch and it turned out to be a family affair, Savannah included. Oh, you'd like to see some pictures? Well, ok. Twist my arm...

He kept pouring buckets of water out of the pool and into the grass. Something tells me that by the end of the summer that part of the yard will be seriously green.

My love.

Quick pic before resuming his water dumping activities.

I love this picture.

So there you have it. That's what we've been up to these days. Nothing super exciting but memory making nonetheless.

I'm sure more of that will be going on this month since we're pretty busy. For example, one of our good, good friends is getting married in Tulsa on my birthday. I cannot WAIT to get up there and see all of our forever friends! Plus, Luke and I will get to go sans Austin so we can "party like it's 1995" as my mom would say, which includes staying out past 6:30 and dressing up. I've been a little homesick for Tulsa lately so this trip couldn't come at a better time.

Alrightey. I think I better do a quick "bumble bee" clean before Luke gets home and I head to Bible study. I sure hope the girls remember who I am since I haven't been in a few weeks. If not, I'll just remind them of the stellar snack I brought once upon a time. Who could forget goldfish and cupcakes. Talk about a walk down preschool lane.
