Charlie typing a few emails before we take off.
Here's Charlie blowing out the candles on his pool party cake.
Pool Party Cake!!! In my opinion one of the best parts about being a mom is that you get to make silly cakes (and eat them). This cake was very easy and fun to make...just slap a few bathing suits on some Teddy Grahams and you're halfway there.
Brandon and Emma sporting the visors we made at the pool party. This turned out to be a really fun craft. Turns out everyone loves wearing funny visors!
Charlie making s'mores with his cousins at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort in Bastrop, Texas. We ate s'mores almost every night of our 4-night stay at the Hyatt...hmmm...maybe that's why the tummy is a little bigger this week?
One happy girl and her s'more.
Emma preparing for her pony ride. Is beaming too strong a word to use here? They had her at the helmet.
I think this might be our only family picture from the whole trip. I think it is hilarious.
Charlie's turn riding "Buddy Love" (insert Brokeback Mountain joke here).
That's all for now...we had a great time...it's good to be home though. You can't eat birthday cake, s'mores and ride ponies forever. Now it's back to our lazy summer days spent at home watching our tomato plants and my tummy grow. I am looking forward to filling the time with walks to the library, time spent at home watching my kids invent wild scenarios involving super heroes, babies and parking garages and I'm sure there will be a time-out or two along the way. Happy first day of summer to you! Enjoy!
