Beach Bums

The girls finished up their tennis camp.  I'm a little relieved it's over.  Sally was bumped up to the next level so we were up at the courts for 2 hours...that's a long time to keep Miss Emma occupied.  We survived!

Littlest fan cheering for her sister {Navy shorts, white shirt is "Ibs"}

I got lucky and captured Libby's awesome backhand!

This was Sally and Libby's first time ever playing tennis.  I was very impressed with how much they improved over 6 days!

In the meantime our house siding and painting is finally complete!! It looks so fresh and clean, you'll have to stop by and see it :)  I felt like we were locked up for quite some time.  They weren't able to put in many full days of painting, either the dew point got too high or it started to rain.  We were living in a "bubble" unable to look out our windows for a week.

We got to have our patio back as well.  We hung out outside yesterday afternoon, it was glorious.  Sweet Sister Sally made Sister bracelets for her sisters.  CS-Craigmile Sisters.

Can you spot Emma's, while she's trying to crush a popsicle?

We've heard a lot about the sand bottom pool at Minnetonka Regional Park.  Today we finally had a chance to check it out.  It was quite lovely and peaceful, minus the sand.  I did end up buying passes, as we only have to go 4 times for it to pay for itself.

Emma wasn't sure how to walk in the sand, eventually she peeled herself away from her mama

 Sally can be so good to her and Emma feels so safe when she's with her
 Coming in to attack Mommy with sand
 These two are quite the playmates!
 A rare moment when she wasn't hanging on my leg
 You guys, I hate sand.  We don't use the word hate at our house, but I hate sand.  The girls LOVE it.  In fact, in the background of this picture, do you see the sand angel that Sally made.  Ooof it made me want to crawl out of my skin.

Practicing Selfless Love today and I introduce my girls to the beach
 and this one quickly realized how much I hate it.  See that fistfull of sand, she was giggling and trying to dump in on me.
 Catching some rays
 Developing a master plan
 We rinsed off and had a little picnic before heading home for naps.
 Oh this girl, she's our wild card.  Hilarious little stinker pants, and she knows it!

There's a little more PINK on the block! Welcome to the world Emersyn, we cannot wait for you to come home so we can meet you!!!

Happy FriYaY, Friends!
