Summer is Upon Us

While it might not officially be summer yet, it sure feels like it around here!  School is out, our days are filled with play dates, vacations are scheduled, sunscreen is always at the ready, afternoon thunderstorms are the norm…

My noticeable absence from this blog was due to a little family trip to Washington DC last week (which I will blog about soon).  We got home late on Memorial Day and I’ve been playing catch up ever since.  Whew!  It’s exhausting when you have to hit the ground running after a trip.  I really needed a vacation from my vacation.  Between Zumba obligations, unpacking bags, tackling laundry, the boys’  Star Wars cooking/craft class, purchasing and delivery my aunt’s belated birthday present and attending my friend’s baby shower, I haven’t had a spare moment to think, let alone update over here!

Anyway, I just retrieved a few fun pictures from my camera and thought I’d share before I delve into the 90 bazillion trip photos.  I invited B and Steph and their kids over for a little play date the day before we left for DC.  The children swam while the moms chatted on the patio.  It was a nice afternoon for us and a great way to ensure a nap for the little ones.

Because the children devoured their lunches, I decided to treat them to s’mores for dessert.  I didn’t have a campfire going and was not about to start one in the fire pit.  So, I improvised with the broiler.  The s’mores turned out so yummy!

We’re looking forward to many more days like this.  Bring on summer!
