Splashing into Summer

Do you like that cheesy title? You’re welcome.

We officially have daddy all to ourselves for a short time. We are trying to make the most of our time together, and not focus on the overwhelming stress looming overhead. This week is supposed to be stormy the whole time.. if that isn’t a perfect picture of our lives, I don’t know what is.

We had a fun weekend and took advantage of the sun and heat.


We live within walking distance of  this free splash pad. We drove because it was absurdly hot, and nobody wants cranky kids showing up to the splash pad! It is so fun to watch the kids go from timid and afraid of getting wet to letting buckets of water get dumped on their heads.


Monday, we decided to put a little pool up in the yard so we can enjoy the water any time it’s not storming.

Does anyone else HATE the sunscreen routine?! haha! It is super important to Scott and I to keep the girls protected; especially since Addi had a pre-cancerous mole removed last year. We got this brand (specifically this and this) and I am excited to try it out once our current tube is gone. I have heard that it actually rubs in easily, which is pretty rare for a natural sunscreen. I am mostly excited to {hopefully} kill two birds with one stone by using the bug repellent sunscreen.

Tomorrow, I am heading to The Merc with my mom-in-law bright and early. Ree is opening up the ranch for tours this week! I keep hoping to run into her at Walmart since she shops at ours. It hasn’t happened yet, but I am pretty focused on my list when I am at the store. ha! I’ve probably walked right past her and had no idea.

I’m also trying to plan Scott’s 30th birthday that is on Sunday!! I won’t share any of my plans on here in the off chance that he reads this. But, I am trying to make it special! I love him tons.

Happy Tuesday, friends! I hope it’s sunny where you are!
