Summer Finally Arrived

I think summer has finally arrived. I'm still not sure but there are have been some nice days where I find myself closing my eyes, listening to the kids' laughter, and soaking up the sun.
The beach, hose, sprinklers, and slip and slide, have already provided hours upon hours of entertainment for the kiddos and neighbor friends.

Kasen is Austin's 'best buddy'. If they see each other outside, they run full speed into a crashing hug. For as much as they play together, they quarrel very little. They become so silly when around each other but they sure do enjoy their time together. 

The kiddos just spent last week in swim lessons. Austin really impressed me with this being his 2nd year in it. It's an intense week but so worth knowing how to swim with living on a lake. I am hoping the kids won't be afraid to put on their life jacket and jump in.
I know that I need to soak up on our time on the beach as someday this may not be as exciting as it is right now. For now, Ava makes me sand cupcakes, Austin fishes at every moment, and when Kasen comes over everyone grabs a water gun and shoots anything and everyone.
Glad that we live in a neighborhood with tons of kids of all ages. This summer we have been making a point to get together with neighbors every friday for a potluck dinner. It makes it one less dinner I have to worry about pulling together and it gives us a great reason to get together, share some laughs, and have a drink at the end of the work week. Praying its the longest summer in the history of Michigan because even though I love fall too, it also means Jason will be leaving for 10 weeks and I am just NOT READY for that. Not even gonna think about it anymore, just gonna be thankful for the warm summer days.
