swimsuit weather...

The Girls and I.... I personally think black is a good color for me. Haha!

Yesterday the kids had a half of a day of school. This was officially the last half of a day until the last day of school, in a few weeks. The temperatures are telling me summer is here. We are supposed to be right at 100 for the next few days. This brought a group of kiddos over to the house to swim yesterday. Jake had a group of his friends over. These high temps. brought another issue to the table. New swimsuits! Sarah, and Deasirae are on the hunt for a new suit. These two can seriously shop till "I" drop! I found myself still looking for that perfect suit last night until 9:00. Thank goodness Steve had Tivod American Idol! Shopping with these two makes me reflect on time, and how I used to be. I would imagine that looking cute in a new suit was important to me when I was their age. I now am at the point in my life that I am more concerned about covering up some ripples that have taken a home to the top of my legs! Yuck! I also am so pasty white that the thought of going to the tanning salon is calling my name. I really never have considered myself vain, but now am wondering about that. Hmmm, maybe it is that I am a little older, and gravity is taking a toll? Anyhow life is good, and the pool is officially open! Summer is in the air!

I so am with you on "covering some ripples that have taken a home to the top of MY legs as well. Not pretty!

Sounds like you had a lot of kids at your house yesterday. How fun.
Enjoy your pool time this summer

That is a really cute picture of you and your girls.

I am so jelous when I hear of other people with their pool. I had one growing up and it makes me sad that I can't get one here in Utah. I hate that I have to pay to go and swim where it is soo crowded!

Good luck with your search for a swim suit. I think a moo moo sounds perfect!

Oh man! I would love to just live in a moo moo. I think I need to move to Hawaii, then I could. I just wear Crop pants and capris all summer long. I gave up shorts a few years back. I am Caspars whiter cousin, so the less white that shows the better. So fun to have daughters to shop with. I guess some day I will have daughter in laws.

Add me to the list of loving black in photos! You look great with your girls!

Have fun in the sun! I'm always on the eternal hunt for a good suit. I'm never that happy with the one I end up with. If you find one you love, you must share!

I can't see the picture!

We've been swimming lots this week with lessons finishing up. It's a great way to survive the heat!

My grandma said it's suppose to be over 100 by Saturday. Yep, summer is definitely coming fast for you guys. I have the worst time finding a suit. It took 4 different times of sending mine back in the mail last year. But atlas I found one. Now I am on the hunt for another.

What did you think about Lakisha going home. I personally was fine with it. The last three I all like so, who ever wins is fine by me. Or should we be voting for Jordin since she is a zonie? Have a great night.
