Happy Birthday, Red!

You've had a birthday, shout hooray!

We want to sing to you today.
One year older and wickeder wiser too!

Happy Birthday to you!

Happy 34th to Red, whose real birthday is tomorrow, but who got to spend the whole weekend on birthday fun - guess it's an advantage to be born right around a holiday!

Some Like It Hot

The only real advantage to the Texas heat is that our water toys come out a little earlier than they might in some places (like where Red and I grew up and it snowed today).

We had our first ever adventure with a slip n slide.

Blue gets it:

Pink, as always, has her own way of doing things:

And where siblings are involved, there is always a new twist:
Here's to a long summer with no water restrictions!

Blogging around the block

Hi! I'm doing something different today - guest writing with my friend Lolli!
Have you met Lolli? I hope so - she is as sweet as her name! And she's amazing - the mother of 5, super blogger, and awesome photographer. She'll be speaking at the Casual Blogger Conference coming up soon, and she'll be at BlogHer later this year (I'll be there, too, but that's not the point).

I shared a few of my thoughts that I was able to share in church this past Mother's Day. Lolli added the pictures. Take a look HERE, and let me know what you think! Neither the pictures nor the bodies or babies are mine, they're all Lolli's photos. Pretty amazing!
