we love SuMmeR!!

ok, so its not technically summer yet, but come on! when its highs of 89-90 everyday for a couple weeks, we go ahead and consider it summer here in the sunshine state. here are some fun pics of the kids from the past week:

silly jack

its gotta be hard... playing at the park, taking naps, and eating ice cream, huh ellie!?

one thing i have learned as a mom is to pick my battles. lets just say i didnt even want to fight this one with our very determined jackman.
this past saturday the entire southeast participated in a HUGE service day. each stake came up with a service project to participate in. our stake decided to do "reel fun, real friends" and teach mentally and phisically handicap people to fish. (any guesses on who came up with this idea?!) (oh yeah, and any guesses on who designed the shirts?!) unfortunatelly i had to watch the kids while chris went, but i heard from all who attended that it was a big success. i think this was one of the biggest fish of the day! while bo and chris were fishing, larissa and i took the kids to a splash park. it was PERFECT for the little ones. and for only $ can guess where we will be spending our summer!
KERSEY CAME TO VISIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
words cannot express how good it was to spend time with kerz and her little family. elliott is PERFECT! what a good little babe he is. we spent a lot of time together, most of it involved food, naturally, and was way too short of a trip! elliott spent most of his time with grandma campbell, which was fine with me because i know its good for a mom to have a break occassionally. this was the only clear picture i snapped, but i know kersey has a couple more. jack ADORED elliott, but its hard not to :) we took a trip down memory lane and visited a few places we'd go to alot growing up. i have been blessed with an AMAZING friend!
this morning chris and i took the little ones to the beach. ahhhh, perfection! the water was soooo clear and blue. anyone who sees this water cant help but smile. rikki, marissa, natalie and lisa, this is what you have to look forward to next week!!!!!!

I love that pic of ellie pouting... I just had to add that.

thanks for adding that rik, the more comments the better! oh yeah, the footie pajamas are ellie's and i bought them at costco about 4 months ago. they are a little too big for her and a little too small for jack!
