Avery - the lizard baby

...Funny Avery, just being...well, Avery. Is this a 2nd child thing?

Summer fun

Well, well, well...look who is finally taking one whole minute to throw a quick post up. My boss (aka - dad) has set forth a "bonus proposition" so I'm working my life away trying to make at least 20 hours a week in work. So far I'm only behind about 2 hours. I'm hyperventilating while I type seeing as how I SHOULD be working but it is after midnight - CAN I HAVE A WHOLE 3O MINUTES TO MYSELF? oh that's right, I don't' get time to myself because I have kids. I forgot. That's OK. They both start "school" a.k.a. mother's day out in two weeks and believe me - the countdown has begun! Kendall is beyond bored out of her tree and it is so flipping hot outside there's not a lot of options for activities.

Yesterday I decided to get some sun on this white white skin, so I threw on my bathing suit and the girls and I headed out in the backyard. I got out the Slip 'n Slide and the water table and they had a good time and I did too! I had to show Kendall how to properly do the slip n slide of course. It hurt a lot less than I thought it would...

...until today...

...and I woke up and my shoulders were KILLING ME. I say "were" but they still are killing me. Whew. But it was still fun. Mike wished he knew where the camera was, but ha ha...he does NOT! I however did break out the camera to capture the girls' fun. Kendall tried but didn't quite have enough trust to completely throw herself down on the ground and now I'm starting to think that she might have been pretty smart seeing how SHE isn't complaining about HER shoulder muscles wreaking havoc on her body today...

Avery just enjoyed saying "two, two, twoooooooooooooo" over and over (mimicking my "one, two, three" countdown for Kendall) and playing in the little sprinkler pillow at the end of the slide. Overall it was a fun afternoon and the grass isn't too terribly ruined. We haven't had much rain so it needed a little extra watering.

Avery is ready for school! She'll start in just a few weeks. I put her backpack on her and she refused to take it off. She pretty much looked like a turtle. A really cute turtle.
