Happy Summer!

Summer is here and so is the very miserable weather. This is Arkansas, you just got to love it to live here and try to remember how beautiful Spring was and Autumn will be.

In May we helped celebrate my Granny Baker's 83rd birthday. I hope to look this beautiful when I am 83.

Before it got too hot, we went to Nana and Papa's to ride horses. This is Nash's first time on a horse. He wasn't sure he liked it or not. Everyone else had lots of fun. Layla and Dylan were riding together and had their first fall, off a horse, more like a slide off of the horse. Traumatic either way, Layla wouldn't get back on. But Dylan got right back on that horse and told Papa "maybe we should go a little slower", I don't think there is slower speed than snail.

As I have mentioned before, we are in the process of trying to sell our house. Before we put a "for sale" sign in the yard, we had some major cleaning to do, which included the garage, see below. You know the game "Where's Waldo?", see if you can play this one, "Where's Nash?"

Yes, that's him in the playpen, he was having so much fun pressing his face against the mesh.

We have no pool, so the next best thing, a sprinkler.

Nash thought it was too cold, so he wouldn't go near the sprinkler. Dylan found the Hydrangeas more appealing, although she did get a little wet.

Summertime fun, lazy days, doing nothing in particular except Vacation Bible School, Music Camp, Bball Camp, Cheerleading Camp, Swimming Lessons, Science Camp, and that is just June. It sounds like a lot, but they still find time to ask, "What can we do now?, or say "I don't have anything to do". However, they have learned not to complain to me about not having something to do, I can fix that problem quick, by saying "go clean ___________, or go practice _________ (fill in the blanks).

We are trying to keep up with our reading skills this summer. I thought this was cute, Harrison reading Harry Potter and Layla reading Junie B. Jones.

I hope everyone has a Happy 4th of July!
