Summer Fun at Grandma and Grandpa's
With Patrick's work schedule, we have been able to spend most of the summer out of the desert. What a relief! We are so lucky that my mom has a pool and lives very close to the beach. We are also super lucky that she doesn't mind us intruding on her quiet, perfectly maintained home! It is truly like being on vacation at her house. We eat all of our meals outside on the patio (great for clean up), spend all day in the pool listening to the oldies, playing rummie tiles or Mexican train, and never really get out of our suits. We have also been able to spend a lot of time at the beach. The boys have become much braver in the ocean and finally we got Blake and Ryan to body board this past weekend. I even got in on the action and went out for a dip in the ocean. I haven't done that in years! It was so fun to take each one of the boys out in the waves. Even Evan came out with me for a short while. The kids love playing in the sand and looking for sand crabs.
Thank you mom and dad for allowing us to spend so much time at your house. Blake wants to live there permanently and I would not have survived this summer otherwise!
