A lazy, hazy summer day

We started out the day as per usual: a slow waking up, resplendent with sunshine pouring through the living room windows; an early matinee – lately, it’s been Stuart Little (affectionately referred to as “the bunny rabbit” by Seth); and the inspection of all of our Cars characters.

Apparently, Erin makes a great parking garage. ;)

After breakfast, we embarked on our first outing as a trio – me and my two littles.  We drove about 45 minutes to meet up with 4 other moms and their kiddos for some fun in the (really, really hot and sticky) sun.

I’m pretty sure I need to get this pool for our yard, too.  Angela said it was, like, $25 at WalMart, and it’s both long and wide enough for even me to stretch out.  I don’t know if these dimensions constitute an “above ground pool” (which is restricted by our HOA), but I don’t care.  Fine me.  This momma needs a good watering hole.

I was okay with him drinking the water; at least until the pool started to fill up with grass and mud.  In or out, kiddos.  Make up your minds.

Seriously?  Could he be any cuter?  So glad he finally grew into his Toledo Mudhens ball cap.

Seth had no problem taking a time-out in the shade….as long as cupcakes were provided.

And the little miss?  Slept for the entire four hours we were gone.  I’m thinking the heat is gonna get to her like it does her momma.  ‘Cept she looks cute-enough-to-eat no matter what, while I have to find some way to make my sweaty brow come across as a “glistening” one. ;)

Ah, summer in the south.  Gotta love it.

My niece and nephew have a similar pool, and I've had a hard time staying out of it. Looks like Seth had a wonderful time!
