It’s not often that I actually capture photo of all of the kids together, mostly looking at the camera and all of them with mostly nice looks on their faces.  I got lucky on this one.

We were at a friend’s birthday party extravaganza, or as Tommy put it an “epic” party when they announced that the Fire Truck was on it’s way for the kids to have a ride!  Needless to say, even my big 9 year old Tommy was excited.

I love the light on this.

 

Just hangin’

This morning, there was a tree being cut down in our neighbors yard and they boys just HAD to watch, I mean it was pretty cool.  It was a big, tall date palm and the man cutting it down was harnessed to the top of the tree and using a chain saw, afterall. The neighbor girl happened to be out as well.  This lead itself to nearly an hour long conversation over the fence about who knows what but I am pretty sure it was about Justin Beber and Selena Gomez.  They are a pretty hot topic around here these days.  In fact, I even let Tommy and Lucas use an iTunes gift  card to download an entire Selena Gomez album.  “I Love You Like A Love Song, Baby”  plays over, and over and over on my phone, why did I let them do that anyway??!!

I, I, I love you like a love song baby and I keep on pressing repppppeat.

Oh and yes, they wake up and put their swim trunks on. Hey at least they put on shirts today.  We’ll see how long those last.

My girls in summer and my son all year around live in their swim wear!

Summertime, Summertime, Sum, Sum, Summertime!

Summertime in this house means lots and lots and did I mention LOTS of swimming.  Early morning swimming, late afternoon swimming evening swimming.  Swimming with the neighbors and friends. Needless to say my kids are pretty brown and I think their feet may be becoming webbed.

Ruby is in love with “schwimming” this year.  Last year she didn’t really care about it one way or another, but we can’t keep her out of the pool now.  She is jumping off of the waterfall into the big pool and swimming everywhere.  Yesterday, she started swimming across the spa without her vest to her Daddy.  It’s only a matter of weeks before she is swimming completely without that vest.  Eli was about her age when he jumped off the waterfall with no vest and swam all the way to the steps.  I had a post about it, but when I switched over from blogger, it didn’t transfer over. You can still see it here but I’ll have to look on The Hubby’s laptop for it and link it up properly.

The boys have gone from cannon balls and jack knifes to full on flips!  Scares the you know what out of me! I’m just waiting for the first head to get split open.  So far we’ve been very lucky with the pool.  They only person who was ever really injured in it was The Hubby when he attempted some crazy jump off of the diving rock and split his big toe apart from his second toe. (is there a name for toes like fingers?)  He had 7 stitches on the inside (ewww, yuck) and 7 stitches on the outside of his foot.  That was our first summer in this house, in fact, I think it was in the first month we lived here.  Ya, he’s good like that.

Yes there are names! Starting from big to little…
Market, home, roast beef, none, and wee wee wee! :)

On friends that we’ve made family.

This is Mae Mae, or Mi Mi, or Megan.  She is Ruby’s best friend and lives across the street.  Ruby begs for her all day and cry’s when she leaves.  She is an exceptional little girl who we are very fond of.  Mae Mae will spend hours with Ruby, just playing dolls, coloring and being a “girl”.  The things that her brothers just don’t really get.

I am very thankful for Mae Mae, and her spirit.  Ruby and she are very much a like.  They are girly girls, and rough and tumble at the same time.  They won’t take any nonsense from the boys, they know EXACTLY what they want.

They are kindrid spirits.  Thank you Mae Mae for being Ruby’s Big sister, and PS…she NEVER gives her kisses away so you must be very special to her.
