Check out the sand car and star fish

We only made it to the beach once. It was just too hot. When we went to the beach, it was at 8am! We left by 10, because it was just that hot! The kids enjoyed it regardless. Jack wasnt in to the sandcastle thing this time, he saw surfers. When the guys would walk past him with their boards he would ask if he could borrow one! He also liked filling buckets with water to dump on Grace's sand creations. He's such a boy. Grace was content with playing in the sand, and only got in the water to get more water for another wing on her castle.

Water Guns

Grandma got Jack water guns. . . . she turned him
loose with them before instructing him in water
gun manners. After his lesson he would swim up to people and say,
"Can I shoot you in the face?", and usually before you
have a chance to answer he would have already
shot you and been on to the next person.

Jack was not the favorite of anyone at the pool.

Grandma's Pool

The favorite part of grandma's house is the pool for my children. Hands down, no competition. By the end of our week, all the lifeguards and most of the moms knew Jack very well. Grace liked to follow the older girls around, and since they thought she was cute, they let her. That was when they werent going down the slide. I thought Grace would be fearful of it, it goes fast, its pretty long and she's so little she always ends up under water at the end. But that child would go down and immediately high tail it to the side and go down again, sometimes cutting in front of everyone else, and they let her!


Here is a pic of the new pool. Seriously, some of you out there that have visited many times may not believe it till you see it!

I'm A Little Behind!

Ok, so again, our blog would make us look like we are so boring. We are boring, but we do leave the house! Memorial day weekend we went to Canyon Lake, just about an hour north of SA with some friends and rented a boat. The kids were so excited and had alot of fun, what wasnt fun? The blistering sunburns we all came home with! FYI: spray sunblock doesnt work! I totally took my camera with me to capture the kids knee boarding, tubing and playing, BUT forgot to make sure my xd card was in it.
School ended June 4, Claire and Halle left June 5 for their dads in Denver. They will be home mid July.
June 9, Jack, Grace and I went to see Grandma in Florida. (more on that later!) We just got home last Wednesday, and have since been enjoying our newly opened neighborhood pool! Any of you that have been to our house have probably seen what was for over a year a really big hole dug in the ground at the front of our neighborhood. We kept saying, that will be our pool someday. . . and almost 2 years later its here! Yeah, there is a little sarcasm in that. Really, it takes 2 years to install a pool in an already dug hole?! But its done now and its really nice and we will surely get alot of use out of it this summer. Today our neighborhood even had a "Grand Opening" pool party and bbq, there was a bouncy house and snow cones and San Antonio's version of BBQ, Fajitas! So that catches us up to now. We dont have anything big on the schedule for awhile, so maybe i will keep up a bit better . . .
