Splish Splash

The summer heat is really getting to us lately. It has been hitting over 110 everyday. We have been in hibernation mode. So, we remedied that with some pool time with the cousins. Everyone (including the moms) were soaked to the bone and feeling good.

Bathing beauty Aislinn minus brother. He wouldn't let mom get his mug shot.

Kyla, ready for the dive.

Emmy with her first popsicle. She was covered head to toe and loving every moment.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!

Love this picture! Aislinn loves her shoes, keys and cell phone already.

It's A. . .

We have decided to find out this time. Drum roll please..........It's a girl! We have another little princess on the way and we couldn't be more excited. You can see Baby Bean's first picture below.

Nature In Our Own Backyard

Within the last week we have discovered little friends in our very own backyard. One night last week we were going to walk outside. Jenna went to step out on the porch and low and behold there were four furry little baby birds sitting there all curled up. They were the cutest little balls of fur and so friendly. We all were so intrigued we reached out to them and they immediately started climbing into our hands and chirping away. We couldn't take them in because of our two cats would think they were dinner. So, Jenna's sister has taken them in. We get to visit often. We did find out they are baby quails. We were a little worried that they may die without their mommy. Turns out they are very self-sufficient and can live on their own at 2 weeks. For the time being we are all enjoying them.

We have also discovered that we have a Peter Cottontail that has taken up residence in our backyard. He sits out there eating the grass and taunting the kitty cats at the window. Apparently we have really good grub. He sits out there enjoying the grass and being our little mower.
