Busy with all things summer

It's so great having both spouses have summer vacation off! We're all having ridiculous amounts of fun. Here's a little picture diary of just SOME of the summer activities we've been enjoying:

Hanging out with Dad in the monster truck.

Cooling off in the pool and/or sprinkler.

Sidewalk chalk.
Mama's little helper.
Our new t-ball/bat.
Ice cream cones.
You can't see them very well, but I made hanging candle holders out of shakers from the $ store to go above our patio table. Seriously ups the cozy factor!
Helping a friend with decorations for her blow - out (and by that I mean wedding)
Picking strawberries...
to make 2 batches of freezer jam and to freeze a ton for smoothies!
Picnic at the beach. (one of my personal favorites)
4th of July view from my aunt and uncles deck
Enjoying the show with Nona. I wasn't sure how she'd do but she LOVED them! She kept clapping and saying, "YAY" and "more"
I'm thinking that posts are going to be pretty infrequent - I just can't seem to bring myself to spend the time doing it with so many other things calling me!

were the candle holders salt shakers? I should go check it out. Our pergola needs alot of help these days getting 'warmed up'. I need to get some hanging plants too. But that's not too high on the list of things to do right now with a baby coming, but still good inspiration.
