"Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays!"

Ah yes, Monday again. And a 5 day work week. Ick. But I keep reminding myself that in a few weeks I will wake up on a Monday at the beach. YAHOO!

We had such a busy, swimming weekend. We ended up going to my mom's yesterday on a whim since it was pushing into the 90's again. She's got an above ground pool with nice new Trex decking all around it, so it's definitely the place to be in the summer. And an added bonus, usually when we go over, she likes to cook for us so we get to hang out w/ Bertie & Pop Pop (which is always fun) and eat a meal together. Now that's my idea of a Sunday meal - snackies (and maybe a drink or two) by the pool and then a easy, breezy meal. Fun!

Caroline continued to amaze me in the pool - even doing a little under water swimming. I think she's starting to put the pieces together and will be a little dolphin before I know it. But once it was obvious she was getting a little worn out, I had her put her swimmies back on and she continued her jumping and swimming on her own. God forbid we try to catch her now - but she does insist that we are watching her! (Good girl!!)

I even got Bryce to try out the swimmies for a bit and he kind of liked it. But then Jason got him to start "jumping" into the pool and he would not stop. He was squealing and splashing and had no problem going under water. (I put jumping in quotes since he hasn't actually mastered true jumping yet - it's more like a big step.)

And thankfully, both kids were well worn out and once both were in bed, they passed out and slept all night. Whew! I must admit, I was a bit worn out too. Summer weekends definitely take more out of you than winter ones do.

It's so hot today - supposed to be 100 - I'm guessing an evening of sprinkler play is in order when we get home for the kids. Ah yes, the joys of summer!

We are going to try to go to the pool tonight. I can't stand to be out in the heat during the day.

Once we have the baby, you guys are all invited down to our pool for a day of fun in the sun!!!
