Katrina said...

We have a pool so most days we are chilling by the pool or in my daughter's splash pool and we live 5 minutes from the beach so we spend a lot of time there too. We just love living in Florida.

Being a SAHM of 20 month old twins and a 6 month old....I will be doing a lot of the same...however, the beach will be calling our names a couple of times this summer. I am super excited b/c my angels didn't really care for the sand and water last year but I think this summer will be different!!! I feel sooo blessed to have my 3 angels! I would love your giveaway though as it would be such a treat for this busy mama!!! :) Have a blessed day!

My first reaction was "whatever I want" but then I thought about it a bit more and decided to have my kids make a 'summer to do' list. The best part of summer is having fun as a family ... what better way than to have the kids make the 'family summer to do list'! Damn your good girl!

Our major focus each summer is getting show cattle ready for County Fair in August. We get up early and stay up late - working with them when it's cool. For me, though, I love nothing better than drinking a pitcher of sweet tea and reading late into the night while it's QUIET!
