Double Digits

While I was away from blogging, my sweet baby girl turned 10!  (I wish someone would please tell my girls to stop growing up!)

We took Tristn and a few of her friends and spent the day at a waterpark.  What else can you do when it is 110 degrees outside!?!

Then, we came home and played “Minute to Win It” games.

I really think the kids could have played these games all night!

Tristyn has been wanting pet of her own.

Surprise!  Her friend bought her a fish!  She was so excited as we welcomed “Rex” to our family.

But that’s not all…the next day when we celebrated her “Family Party.”

Aunt Kendra and Uncle Kent surprised her with something else….

Meet Benjamin Button…

We call him “Benji”, for short.

He is the sweetest bunny.  He likes to snuggle and just lays in your arms (most of the time!)  We have enjoyed him so much!

You could not wipe the smile off of Tristyn’s face.

I think she going to like being 10!

Summer Love

I love summer!  Even when our temperatures reach 100+degrees here in North Texas, I still love it!  (I love my A/C, too!)Smile

I love my porch in the summer. I love the flowers and the flag decorations.  I keep my flag decorations out throughout the entire month of July.  It reminds me of summer.  P1110482

I love summer parties, when we get to decorate with bright colored tissue paper pom-poms!

I love morning runs with my husband.   This is one of my favorite places to run.

This view doesn’t get old.

I love the vegetables from my garden.  The okra has been a hit this year! We decided to put a net over the tomatoes this year to keep the birds out.  I’m pretty excited to finally have Roma tomatoes.
