I've been at the pool every since the day we arrived. I love weather in the 90's or above...especially when I'm near water.

I've taken tons of pictures and I can't wait to share them. I purposely left my editing stuff at home so I wouldn't spend my vacation on the computer.

We sent Amy and John (my sister-in-law and brother-in-law) away for a night so we're hanging with our wonderful nephews! That means lots of games, snacks and laughs!

I'm totally freckled.

Spending time with family makes me happy.

I know from looking at my nephews how fast life flies by...this is my time to enjoy my kids. They are beautiful and each one my gift from God.

I'm resting and content. Love vacations. What are you doing for vacations this summer? How was your fourth? Did you take pics for my contest? I've received several entries....let's keep 'em coming!
