long time, no blog......(picture overload)

So....I haven't posted in for-eva! I have been a lazy, sun-drenched loser, busy with end of the year parties....Memorial Day camp....blah, blah, blah.....
I can't even tell you how happy I am that school is out and summer has begun. Our long, lazy days spent at Eastgate Pool have started and we enjoy them soooo much.
I am vowing 2 things this summer.....not to go so long without posting on this blog...and to stop biting my nails. We'll see how this plays out.
We went to Ella Katie (yup, for those of you who don't know, Ella is named after Brad's aunt, Ella 'Katie') and RonDee's on Memorial Day for some swimming and good food.
I wore my rarely seen afro so we were sure to take lots of pictures for proof that the 'fro does exist.
The last day of Kindergarten was bittersweet. I am so glad for school to be out...but sad that my baby girl is growing up. There was a little assembly, and Ella was recognized for being an Ambassador (chosen by the teacher to help out with stuff).
And all the Kindergartener's get a certificate.....So Cute.....and you can bet I was crying.
(that's my girl on the top row, far right)
All her BFF's! I love this picture, and I know these kiddos will be friends for years to come!
Last day of Mrs. Fimple's class. I cannot say how much we love this lady. She's been such a blessing to both of my girls.
Evan's 3rd grade end of the year party was big fun.....but I had worked the night before and didn't have time to sleep before it in this picture I had been awake for about 28 hours. Needless to say, my brain wasn't working well and this is the only picture that was taken.
By the way....straight A's for Miss Evan!!!!!! school is done and the fun begins....

Lounging at Eastgate....

Evan diving....

Last weekend, we met Jamie and Lorelei and the kids at Katie's for some family swim time.
Girlys decided to sport their bikinis.

This week, Ella went to UAFS's baseball camp. Talk about good times. She had a blast and learned so much. Was she the only girl at baseball camp? OF COURSE. Did she care? Absolutely not! She had a blast and I have a feeling that her being the only girl got her lots of attention from everyone. She was chosen as a 'camper of the day' every single day and she loved every minute of it. Let me tell ya, this girl works as hard (if not harder) than any boy out there! She makes us proud!

On the last day of camp, they teach the kids how to slide, 'slip-n-slide' style!!!!

Ya think she was enjoying that?

And, seriously, why wouldn't she be the favorite camper? Just look at her. You know that none of those silly boys look this cute in a baseball helmet!
Alrighty.....long post! I'm gonna do my best to keep up better this summer....but the lazy days make me.....ummm.....lazy!
