My Day in Instagrams!

We were only 2 days away from breaking a Heat Wave Record, when suddenly the clouds rolled in on Thurday afternoon.....

The temp dropped and we watched & waited for the rain that never came......

Hallie even pulled out her hat when the temps took a dive into the low 90's, but soon the clouds rolled on, the sun came out, and we were 2 days shy of breaking a record.......
So it was back to the pool.
Suffering through 40 days of 100+ degree weather deserves some kind of recognition.
As one of my FB friends put it: "It felt like winning the Silver Medal, when we should've won the GOLD!"

Summer 2011

As the sun sets once again on one of the fastest summers EVER...we smile at all the great times that we have had so far.......Practicing our driving on the back roads of Granbury.
Spending time at the lake with our dear friends and family.
Sleeping late late late!
Celebrating 7/11 with FREE slurpees.
Eating lots of Fuzzy's Tacos......
and running into childhood friends who also loves him some Fuzzy's.
Hitting the local waterparks and riding the slides that scare us the most!
Going to Camp Thurman and sort of liking it and sort of NOT.
Going to see a few movies, when it was too hot outside to even breathe!
Cheering the Rangers on to a victory with sweet friends!
Celebrating 40 years of friendship with best friends!
Just plain spending time together with my 2 favorite girls in the whole world!
We love summer and will savor these last 2 weeks!
GO S-L-O-W! please.

She's BACK!!

On July 10th, we WELCOMED RILEY HOME!!!

I have done some fun photoshoots this summer...Met some sweet babies....
with really big bows and beautiful faces....
But now that the temperatures are reaching like around 500 degrees (well, close!)...I've had to put my fun side hobby on hold for a while!
Sweaty photos just aren't cute! Hoping for some cooler temps very soon!
