june - july

One of my all-time favorite pets

So much color right outside my window...
so much watering in the summer heat...
so worth the effort!

Beach Trip 2012

The first 2 days 
the water was SO rough...
red flags flying everywhere
lots of water rescues up and down the beach

A nice addition to our time on the beach
thanks Mark and Austyn for introducing
Jimmy Buffet Pandora!
PERFECT beach music!

The next week
these sweet kids went to Atlanta
to run a day camp 

Celebrated Mark's 22nd Birthday
with his personal favorite
(fun-fetti cake!)
and lemon squares

Fourth of July at the lake
