bbq’ing it up

   We decided to get together with some of our neighbors the other night and let the kids get all of their energy out. They bounced in the bounce house {the one that Cole thinks it’s ok to WWF his sweet little friend, Landry}…not ok! Then, they moved to the pool and splashed around on the swim step for a bit before it was time to eat. ccoleSimple Lighten copy 2This is little miss L! Just a bundle of personality and never without a bow! Cole just LOVES to hang out in her playroom. She is all girl!landrySweet friends, Cole and Carsen hugging it out. Cole just loves his buddy Carsen. We can’t walk by his house without Cole asking to stop by. This is where we have spent most of our Sunday morning this summer swimming with all the buds in the neighborhood.sweet friendsLittle Chloe and I decided to have a little photo session. I will take ANY willing subject that will endure my camera for some practice! It just so happens that she is beyond cute and so photogenic!

Silly little guys. friendsWhat was Blake doing through most of this??blakeSleeping of course!! strapped to his daddy and snoozing away. Such a little love.brooks

We ended the night pretty late around 11:30. On our walk home Cole asked for “5 more minutes!” Please, you know he got home and crashed out!! We always love hanging with the neighborhood peeps. They are our family away from family.

Adorable! Adorable! Adorable! I think Cole will fit into the newsboy hats-I got them at Childrens Place in the boys section so they are size 7-8. And Pres has room in it still. Your neighborhood reminds me of the one I am in now. makes me sad to move, but I'm only going to be about 10 minutes away. Your wordless Wednesday picture of Blake is just precious!
