a little swim before bedtime

Since the start of summer both of the boys have been going to work with Mike. It's a nice arrangement for all of us most of the time. The boys get to go play on a huge ranch and get dirty and do little boy things while I have a chance to clean or run errands without all the distractions. But there are times where it sucks as well. They have only been in the pool a handful of times. By the time they come home it is late or the water is so cold that you can barely stand to be in it. Luckily they don't seem to be bothered by it too much. 

That's why last night after everything had settled down we thought it would be a good idea for a nice little evening swim before bed. Here are a few pictures I snapped since I don't get to do that very often with them anymore.

pool time!

A few weeks ago I decided to get a pool.

Not like in years past where we have gotten those little rinky-dink plastic or blow up pools. You know the ones, they don't last very long with two boys and a lab. So this summer I thought the bigger the better!

After some searching and a really good sale at Academy I found this beast...

Okay, it's not a beast per say, but it is big enough to lounge in and let the kids get all wild and crazy. And it saves us from spending a ton of money at the city pool!

I even spruced it up a bit with paving stones and rubber mulch! 
Next will be adding some signs on the fence and lights to my porch :)

So this summer I am planning on BBQ'ing a lot with friends and teaching the boys how to swim (finally!) 

What are your summer plans?

my little bloggy break

Hello Y'all!

It's been 2 months since I have logged on and posted anything and I have to say that the little break was really nice. Things got so busy with the end of school and summer starting. Now that school is out and the kids go to work with the Hubby most days I have a little more free time. 

*insert happy mommy dance here*

I hope you have all had a nice couple of months and I look forward to getting caught up on my bloggy reads this week and getting this baby back up and going! 

See y'all again soon!!!
