the new swingset...in pieces, waiting on HOA approval so we can put it together!
griffin and alyssa braving the heat!
alyssa was afraid big brother was going to run her down with his bike!
looking too cool :-P
alyssa riding on the bike griffin got when HE turned 2!
alyssa looks too cute in her mermaid outfit and sandals :-)
a little trick riding for the camera!
well...it's hot. i mean seriously swamp-ass hot! it has been hovering at or around 110 for a few days now plus humidity. i wish we'd get some storms if we have to go through the misery of humidity!
shane has been working outside. we had rock hauled in today to fix a drainage problem we have as well as to put around our irrigation ports in the back. they keep washing out so huge river rock seems to be the answer. for now :-) i hope it works. other than that, we have our new swingset sitting and waiting out back for HOA approval so we can assemble it. the kids are chomping at the bit to be on it. honestly, it's been so hot they couldn't use it right now anyway. a good friend of shane's (thank you stan and family) had this amazing swingset (that was nicer than the one we were getting ready to buy) that his kids don't use. it was only a year old and he gave it to us! shane, doug and andy went to take it apart and load it on a flatbed trailer. doug will help shane put it together once we get the ok.
other than that, we are having a great summer. it is hard to believe that we have only 4 weeks of break left. the first 5 weeks have FLOWN by. we're keeping busy and mostly out of trouble!
we made reservations at a cabin in greer for the week of the 12th. we are so excited to get out of the heat! it's in the 60's and 70's up there during the day now so i can't wait!
