It is H-O-T outside!!  With temps in the 100s all weekend long, the kids just wanted to go out and play in the sprinklers.  Until they got out there and it was even too hot for sprinklers!  They lasted long enough to enjoy a popsicle, but then it was back inside into the air conditioned house!

For some reason, Abbi has really been into pranks lately.  She'll watch pranking videos on or on YouTube, and just wants to play pranks all day.  Since most of the pranks consist of things that are way too messy - like putting flour in the blow dryer or plastic wrap on the toilet - and mom says no to all of those, she decided to find her own way to prank.  So she got all dressed up and hid in her room until Easton came in where she jumped out and scared him. Everyone got a good laugh, including mom and dad since she managed to shimmy her way into an 18-month old costume.  Oh, how this girl makes us laugh!!

Sometimes it's about the simple things in life - like top your own pizza night. :)

One thing is for sure - Abbi sure does love being in the spotlight.  She is constantly wanting her picture taken or a video taken of her.  I hope she always keeps that fearlessness!

This kid loves hats.  But he doesn't really have any of his own that still fit, so he wears some old adult sized ones at home all the time.  Walking through Target today, he saw this hat and had to have it.  And look at him - how could I resist??

We needed a photo of our family for an upcoming family reunion. We tried to selfie it, but ended up having to get the tripod and timer out.  I sure do love this family of mine!

And while you are outside, you just have to have jumping pictures, right?? :)

Sometimes it is so hard to get this girl to do her homework, but she is so smart and I love watching her work.  I'm so proud of all she does!

This boy...

He can be so frustrating and trying sometimes.  He refuses to grow up - doesn't want to get dressed himself, go to the bathroom himself, put on his own seatbelt.  And he still wants to ride in the cart at the grocery store.  It's so hard some days, because I just want/need him to have a little bit of independence.  But then sometimes I have one of those moments when I see just how much my kids are growing up, and I want a piece of that baby stage back again.  I know one day I'll look back on this stage of life and it will all just be a memory, and I'll long for the day when he wouldn't walk down the stairs without holding my hand.  Maybe I just need to hold onto every moment I have!
