pool side baby.

we took a break from all our unpacking yesterday to enjoy this hot summer weather by having a little BBQ with these friends on their roof top pool. and since E only has probably 2 more weeks before her little 4 month old body outgrows this bathing suit sized for a 9 month old (this child knows how to eat!) we hope to get in as many pool days as possible in that next little while. :)
hope your week is off to a great start!

tennis, anyone?

last week when my sisters were in town, i enlisted their help in teaching me how to play tennis. after all, they are tennis rockstars and while i’ve never been on the court before, tennis has been on my list of things i wanna learn how to do, and do well.
but as you are about to witness by the following photos… tennis is hard for me. just look at my face….

and then i just turn into a dancer on the court,
because that is my comfort zone…
anyway, we finished the day with what we do best.
silly pictures…..
dang, i’m gonna miss these girls all.summer.long.

getting our move on…

i was afraid something would get in the way–because that tends to be the case when we find a home we love on the hill, but… remember when i mentioned this place? well, we held our breath all week, waiting with a pen in hand to sign that lease… and sign that lease we did! thanks for crossing your fingers for us!
i feel like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders– but then again, i feel like it’s been replaced with the thought of packing up our current place in only a few days time with a baby on my hip and a bulldog who likes eating boxes. heaven help us. ;)
baby and bulldog are napping right now, so i’m off to pack up a box or two! enjoy your monday…
