The first day of Summer 2011!
Written on 06/22/2011
Well we finally got sunshine. I’m glad because if I didn’t wake up to sunshine on the first official day of Summer I had my bags packed ready to head south.
We started our day off with a trip to the gym and then proceeded to go to Target to find ourselves a pool! I have a serious problem at Target. No matter what I buy or how much time I spend in there I always end up spending WAY too much money. I think they need to just stop tempting me with all their cute hats, dresses, kids clothes and home decor. If they could just make things not cute (like a certain store that starts with a W and ends with a T) I could go in and grab the necessities and leave. So technically it’s not my fault that I spend too much money at Target. It’s Target’s fault.
Ok so back to our day. By the time we got home nap time was fast approaching. I had to fulfill my promise to fill the pool and let the girls take a little dip. They were in heaven. These girls could swim all day long if I let them, and if creepy bugs didn’t land in their pool. This is a bit of a problem because not only do my girls have a fear for creepy crawlers but mine is about 100 times worse. So when a big ol’ bug lands anywhere near them or in our pool we just have to pray it somehow finds its way out! I think I need to invest in one of those 6 foot long net cleaners people use to clean their in-ground pools.
After naps and after Vin got home from work we were back at it again, this time with some nice acoustic music. We ended our night with a nice warm fire and roasted marshmallows. I’m REALLY looking forward to more of these warm summer nights. There isn’t much that makes me happier than sunshine. Thank you, Lord for this gift! We Oregonians sure don’t take our sunshine for granted!!
