Hello Summer!!

‘Shaka Lacka’ its hot outside.  I’d like to say that pregnancy is a reason to think its overwhelmingly hot, but I think no matter what stage I’m in… I’m still HOT…. so hot that I have sweat dripping from my knees.. Who knew sweat could drip from knees!

Finding the time and energy to take a full on vacation is just not looking too promising, however I have found yet another reason why I love paying due’s to my local Home Owner’s Association.  <If you have been keeping up with me, its not because they assist in parking wars and apply penalties as I would if I were President>.  I love that we have a local pool club also known as the “BEACH CLUB” that literally takes the beach from the coast of Texas and puts it into a nice lil’ area where we can enjoy it, just 5 minutes away from our house.  This is an ariel shot I took from my personal helicopter.. haha, I kid… just making sure you are reading!

This is merely a picture posting….

I wish I had taken more pictures but I don’t have a water proof camera case…. and while Erik was off on one end of the pool with Ryan, I was with Reese so I missed out on getting more pictures of Ryan.  Luckily this will be a place we hang out a lot this summer…. so more to come!

Its a final count down for Reese’s birthday!! WHOA!! She’s going to be ONE on Saturday!! I can’t believe it!!  At this point, she is walking and spending a lot of her conversation time saying “WHAT!?” and has kicked the bottle and formula to the curb! She has decided that real food is the only way to live.  She’s made the transition from the bottle very easy…. next obstacle is the pacifier… thankfully we only use that for sleeping!

Happy Monday Ya’ll!!

That's so fun! I've always heard about that place but I thought you had to live in the neighborhood (or have someone that does live there bring you) to get in. That's what I was told anyways a few years ago. Happy 1st Birthday to Reese! Can't wait to see the party pics :)

What a great place to be able to hang out!

With both my kids, one day the pacifier was just "lost" and that was it. LOL They asked for it, we looked, told them it was all gone and they forgot about it fairly easily.

Oh and by the way Reese has to be the cutest little girl I've ever seen! Love her!

Shacka Lacka is correct!! Nice little beach club, ma'am! Super jelly over here.

I hope your hubs has sunscreen on his head. I am feeling sorry for him already.

And Miss Reese...she is stylin in that bikini!!

We've been contemplating dropping the pacifier, too. Like you, we only use it for sleeping. Let us know how it goes. Are you planning to go at it cold turkey or gradual?

Whoohoo @ the bottle transition! Is Reese drinking cow's milk yet or are you waiting until after she's 1 (so, Sunday? lol)?

Umm.. I think they did better than bring the beach from the coast of texas. We went to galveston the other day and had to climb through seaweed, the water was not NEAR as clear. We live like an hour and 15 minutes from the beach and I don't even really want to go. It smells funny.

PS. seeing Reese walk around just makes me more jealous with every picture!!!!!! She did take 5 steps yesterday but nothing since... little toot face!
