You know your pasty white when...

My mother in law wanted the kids to come play today, so I thought I would take advantage of the situation and head down to the pool to lay out for the first time this summer. So I'm laying there minding my own business when this old man comes up to me and says," Sweetie I've noticed your getting red, you really should put some more sunscreen on. So I put some on because I don't know what else to do. Akward...!! Then he asks," So where you from?" And I tell him that I was born and raised here. Then he says," Oh you should have more color for being a native." REALLY!! Man did I feel sheepish. I thought this is whole thing was so funny and sad, I had to share. Oh and don't worry he came back 20 min later with more sunscreen. K so I know my summer life does not consist of

+

But honestly has it really come to this??

Memorial Day Weekend

I realize I'm a little behind on my post lately but I've been pretty busy babbysitting more than normal. We had a really fun Memorial Day weekend. We celebrated Mike's 27th birthday and had a fun filled day full of free things. We had Joes Farm grill for lunch. Outback for dinner. Went and saw Iron man 2, Bahamma Bucks and Krispy Kreme. Wow I'm pretty sure I put on more than couple pounds but it was worth it we had a great time together. We even had our first night away from the kids since before Kennidi was born. It was fabulous! Then the next day we were off to Woods Canyon lake for camping with Mike's family. The kids had a blast going on bike rides, hikes and being around the camp fire. Parker is a total outdoorsman, he kept asking to go fishing so he could catch a fish and eat it. No idea where he picked that up.

Both kids loved exploring

Of course my wonderful husband and his brothers had to find a snake for Parker. I don't know why they thought it was so funny. This little boy was obsessed with this snake he walked around with it like it was his best friend and he got mad when I finally step in and made him put it down.

They even had my sweet Kennidi join in on the snake fun. She kept grabbing it really tight which completely kept freaking me out cuz I swear it was going to bite her. Luckily everyone walked away unharmed. Even the snake!

My favorite was just being up in great weather realxing on the hammocks.

Look at that face. Camping will do that to ya! I was very excited to get home and clean the kids up and take a shower.

We have also loved the summer sun and whenever I can I enjoy taking the kids to the splash pad or to the pool.
