the only thing to do when it's 101 and rising...

...the pool of course!!!

I'm still on a high from the fun day we had today...and no, it's not from the sunburn I'm now sporting :)

We spent the morning with some wonderful friends at their pool. Thanks for having us over Aleesa & Craig! I didn't get too many pictures because I was too busy having fun with the kiddos - yes, swimsuit and all. HA HA I'm far from swimsuit shape these days but when in Rome...

I did manage to get these few while we were enjoying some delicious chicken salad and fresh fruit for lunch. Aren't these girls too cute??And this little chub is 100% water baby. He LOVED the water! His toes were so pruny when we got out. And one with my favorite little guy - yes, crazy pool hair on me and all! Lindsey~ I'm trying to embrace being in front of the camera more! LOL. Yes, no matter how we look! And then this afternoon one of my bestest friends in the whole world came in for a surprise visit and we got to spend the afternoon together at another dear friend's house catching up on old times and letting our kiddos play together. Aren't old friends the best? I love that we can pick up right where we left off even when we haven't seen each other in forever and it's like we've been there all along. Of course, there was plenty of chit chat and girltalk and chips & salsa to cancel out my Wendy's apple pecan chicken salad dinner... :) And too funny not to share...the one topic we kept going back to: Why on earth did we waste our early/mid 20s thinking and complaining that we were "fat" when we absolutely were not. In fact, we were pretty darn skinny...and tanned...and fit...and fashionable :) Ladies, enjoy your 20s because 30s is WONDERFUL...but after kids, especially close together, that body just isn't quite the same. HE HE HE

I'm so happy that you are now in Houston instead of NYC, Jammie!

Thanks for the wonderful memories Jammie & Bridgette!!! Love you both!

AMEN to the 20s, girl!!! I was just thinking about that-how I thought I looked "plump" in my size six jeans...boy I'd kill to get into those things again!

Love the pool pics!!! Looks like everyone had tons of fun!! I have embraced the same additude on pool attire...It doesn't like me nor I like it but that isn't going to stop me anymore :) I luckily am smaller then even high school but oh how the body sags and bubbles! The little ones are worth it though :) And yea to friend time!!!

Great! I love that embrace the camera concept! I guess we just have to realize that our kids will like looking at pictures of us with them later on.

Emily & Amber~ I'm glad I'm not the only one that feels that way!!! :)

Lindsey~ I think what stuck with me was when you mentioned something along the lines of "who ever looks at pictures of themselves with their mom when they were little and think, 'gosh, she's fat" Thanks for the perspective!!! You're so right!
