My indulgence...

My latest and greatest indulgence is this... can you tell what it is? Matt wonders why I keep asking him to pick up more CoolWhip on his way home at lunch (b/c then he leaves after lunch and I devour, he is none the wiser that way)! I just mix raspberries (and sometimes blackberries if I have them) with the Cool Whip and voila... heaven! And best of all, there's only a FEW calories in there (or at least that's what I like to tell myself)! :)
We put water in the water table this morning, it was a little chilly, but they needed to go outside... Elliot couldn't help but SPLASH in there, causing quite a mess, but the smiles were worth every drop of water that escaped!

The kids only have 2 half days left of school after today and then you would ALMOST think life would slow down, but no way! Not here anyway! Landon starts basketball camp right away again on Monday from 9-11 and Bailey has tennis camp from 11-11:30 (is it even worth it?), then Landon has a baseball game on Monday night, Friday night adn Saturday morning. Bailey has a softball game on Tuesday and we have an open house to go to on Saturday, and maybe 80's night Saturday night! That would be a good way to end the week! To top it all off I have to babysit still Monday thru Wednesday next week, but then I'm done for the summer... mixed feelings about that!

The house is progressing along quite well. I think at least! Matt's has been working LONG days between work and the house, from 7:30-8am until at least 11:30-12pm, needless to say we don't see each other much right now. But... it will all be worth it, right????!!!!!! I dread the day that I have to start packing to move... while I'll be excited to move, I don't want to pack anything... I just want to start over! That's not in the budget though... but then again neither is much else anymore, crazy how quick you get over budget. Something is going to have to be cut out and I'm sure my pool will be the first thing to go... figures!

Don't worry my friend, you have a pool at your fingertips whenever you want it! Look at that smile on E- priceless! Is that cool whip the new squirt bottle kind? I saw a commercial for it. Yum!!!! Cobe is in b-ball camp next week too- from 8-9:30- what WERE we thinking????

the cool whip/berry concoction sounds delicious! Cute picture of E with the water - it's so nice to be able to play with that stuff again!

COOL WHIP IN A SQUIRT BOTTLE? Bad, bad, bad. And by bad, I mean indescribably awesome. (You girls didn't fool me for a second with your healthy eating classes >;)

Love the pic of Elliot... I've seen those water tables before, and they look great! Maybe I'll find one at a garage sale one of these days...

Hope you find some time to breathe before the heat of summer sets in... I'm looking forward to touching base over coffee soon!

oh that sounds so yummy!!! E is starting to look so much older these days--super cute photos!! We have a sand & water table and Isabel loves it too. She always enters the house again soaking wet! lol :)

Happy to hear that the house is coming along! It must be getting pretty exciting. :)
