Speaking of cellulite...I am trying to swim mine off. God knows I'm not a runner but throw me in a pool and I can swim. Just give me a cap(so my hair doesn't turn bright green) and my favorite goggles and I'm off.....I look real cute(like the lovely picture someone put of me in my high school yearbook)I love to get a good workout by swimming and I love the smell of chlorine. It gets me going haha... I know weird huh? I guess the smell just triggers memories. Memories of swimming as a young kid in our backyard with my brother and sisters. Memories of me swimming on the high school swim team (minus the yearbook picture). Or maybe it's just the smell of my husband:) He always smells like chlorine and sunscreen:)
I can't run long distances but I can swim forever!
While I was swimming laps yesterday trying to melt away all my baby weight before summer and covering my kids little bodies in sunscreen it took me back to the best days of my youth. Summer days! Swimming pools,water volleyball,water gun fights, sunscreen,the beach,the river,jumping off the houseboat,water skiing, tubing (NEVER AGAIN)watermelons,mom's tuna sandwiches,otter pops, summer skirts, flip flops, corn on the cob, BBQ,lemonade stands, I could go on and on.... I love the squeals and giggles and happiness that comes from our backyard!
Our own paradise:)
Here's some pictures I took of my kids.... I can't wait till Summer!!!!
Geared up for the water gun fight!
Nothing like a chunky naked baby in a bucket:)
Miss hot stuff....
Lovin the hollyhocks!
And to get the cutest summer pictures ever... just give your kids watermelon and snap away!!!
Who can eat their watermelon the fastest?
Love his long lashes!
Landen picked these off our blueberry bush for a quick snack:)
Another thing I will love this summer is our garden! We are growing so many things. So, when the kids are constantly saying,"were hungry" I will just say.... Go pick something!(just not your nose)
After a full day of swimming the kids and I made carrot cake....out of baby food! It was actually really good.
I love making memories with my kids... As summer draws near what stands out as your favorite memories? What are your plans this summer?
And I know my girls always wear BIG bows and flowers in their hair but today they are sporting BIG PINK bows for April Rose! In honor of "Hoping in Pink" Day
p.s. I sure got my work cut out for me with all this diaper talk. I am looking a both sides. (thank you everyone for taking your time to talk about poop and diapers on my blog) I never thought diapers could be so interesting LOL
Have a good day!
I'm off to do some laps:)
