Sunday Snapshot - It's Baaaack...

Summertime that is and we are so ready, HOT but ready, by golly!

We have made some ice cream

some really yummy ice cream

Cookies and Cream ice cream, to be exact!

We have done some swimming - with friends

and some slipping

and some sliding

We have enjoyed my Mom's beautiful yard

and her fabulous cooking!

We are ready! 

However, around here, summertime comes with a word of warning... 

I do NOT like the word "bored" and yet every summer as the kids look forward to being able to sleep late (yeah, that never works) and do nothing, every summer, about one week out, it happens!  That word leaks out, that dreaded word reappears and it drives me crazier crazy!

This year, I have laid it out for them and am looking forward to a little help around the house. 

Why, you might ask?

Well, I have warned the loafers my little darlings that if I hear that word, that dreaded word, come out of their sweet little mouths, they will be assigned a chore - a "Bore Chore!"  Bwahahahaha!!!

So here's to long lazy (but not "that word") days, summer baths (the pool), eating dinner on the front porch (esp after the house has been cleaned - Bore Chore #1), soccer on the beach (yeah, ya knew we couldn't go all summer without it), grilling out (night off for me - yippee) and FAMILY TIME!!!

Yep summer, bring it on!  My house could use a good cleaning!  Hehe!

To join in on more Sunday Snapshots, go here,
