We're wrapping up our first week of summer break, and between it and the final week of school, blogging has become somewhat sporadic. But I think things will settle down pretty quickly. You know, once I figure out schedules that include flute lessons, a photography class (for Em...not me), volleyball practice, moms group, etc, etc, ect. It sounds hectic and summer still comes with a flurry activity but it's different, more laid back...less checking the clock to see how close to bedtime we are...more sleeping in and late night swims.

Last night we went to Music in the Park. This week's band, The Not So Fab Four, was a Beatle's cover group. They had a good sound, the weather was perfect with a wonderful breeze, and the company of lots of good friends.
My girls...growing up so fast.

 Best buds...

Goodness but this little fella will just make your heart melt!

Some tasty watermelon...

Squishy hugs...Mr. T wins!
