Hanging out at the beach with friends,
Finding time to get gorgeous (see what I mean about layer of grime...check out my inbox in the background - sigh),
And hanging out with family in my parent's air-condition-less house (HOT),
Though I complain about the time I need to keep up my wifely/motherly/housekeeping duties, you can see by these pictures that I'd rather spend it hanging out with my kids and hubby doing things that make us a family....the housework will always be there...unless by some miracle I hit the lottery. THEN I'm getting a maid!
See you all in September.

As the previous entry stated, we spent the early part of July with our extended family in New Mexico. However, the latter part of July was spent catching up with old friends. Devon got to hang out with many of her friends from SDSU Childcare. It's amazing how much kids grow up when you're not watching them! It's been about a year since we left that daycare and started attending the Merry-Go-Around daycare. But when we met up with our friends at the Night Time Zoo, they looked like they grew about a foot. Many of them are getting really excited since they will be starting kindgergarten in the fall.
Now, Devon wasn't the only one catching up with old friends. We had a playdate with our good friends Jim and Lisa and their son Jackson as well as with Steve and Crystal and their daughter Amelia. All of the kids are about 6 weeks apart from each other starting with Nathan, then Amelia and then Jackson. How cute are they?
Well, Devon and the SDSU friends had such a good time that we are planning the night time zoo, part 2. Keep an eye out for more pictures of mayhem at the zoo.... I think the animals enjoy watching us parents try and keep about dozen 4 year olds reasonably contained and fairly behaved.

Our community of Scripps Ranch has a yearly 4th of July parade. We moved into this neighborhood just before the 4th last year, but we were not able to attend until this year so this is our first Scripps Ranch 4th of July parade.
This is Nathan the morning of the parade, isn't he getting so big?:
This is Devon waiting patiently for the parade to head our way:
I don't think Nathan was too happy to be sitting in his stroller in the heat.
Devon AND Daddy thought the best part of the parade was the Star Wars Group. Still not sure what they were all about...
All in all, a small but fun parade....although the 90+ degree temperature was a bit unbearable.
