It's Summertime

We've had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. It's very hot and sunny, feeling so much like summer. The kids are loving the outdoors and we are spending lots of time with family and friends. I love this time of year.
Carter kicking off the summer with the classic watermelon and hot dog combo.
Anna sporting her sister's shades, hence the enormous grin. Her sister's face was not near as happy!
A friend of our built this in our backyard this weekend. I'm hoping it adds to the outdoor things to do at home this summer. The kids had a great time and mom will work on not freaking out about sand coming in the house.

And because I wasn't ready to be with the crowds this weekend at the pool, we got out the blow up pool. Again, happy kids!

Anna, Carter and our friend Ella.

  1. Jen and Brian,
    Thank you for sharing your Memorial Day with us. Your children are beautiful. Their exhuberance and happiness jump off the page. You're doing and good job with them. And they're doing a good job with you. It's hard to be overwhelmed with concerns for one person when there are so many other important ones to consider.

    I sent your Mom a note today. "You can give without loving, but you cannot love without giving." Your Mom must love us all because we all benefit from her largesse. (And her wit.)

    As part of the holiday, I wish you sweet dreams. I am sure you are ready for some solid sleep.
    Love and hugs, Lorna
