We are really enjoying the warm summer weather and taking full advantage of it!  My not even 2-year old requests to sit on the deck to eat and we happily oblige!  We are doing what we do best in the summer and that is:  BE OUTSIDE!  Lots of bike rides to the park for playtime and picnics!  Lots of pool time at Bunker Beach! 

This week we even got to play tennis.  Marissa was a natural and impressed me so much!  I am going to have an awesome tennis partner in a few short years.  I can't believe how well she can serve the ball and even return my serves! 

Next week is her last soccer game!  The season went fast and I know she had lots of fun and learned a lot!  Thanks to Daddy, the soccer coach, for doing an awesome job this season! 

This week we got the opportunity to go to the strawberry patch and pick our own strawberries with our friends, Betsy, Emma & Kolden!  I've never done this before in my entire life so it was experience for me too!  Brody didn't seem to realize that you shouldn't eat all the strawberries before we leave the patch!!  It was fun and I for sure want to do again next year!

Here's a few pictures from our week!  Thanks Betsy for taking these since I still haven't bought a new camera!  I broke ours in Jamaica and need to invest in one VERY SOON!

Best Friends!

Strawberry girls!

Do you like the strawberry juice on Brody's face?

Taking a break!

Tony and Marissa playing tennis!

Brody has quite the vocabulary these days and it is totally cracking me up.  Some highlights I wrote down for this week were:  One morning he woke up and I went in his room and I said, "Did you lose paci?" and Brody said, " Tigger took it!"  I just about fell over laughing.  Tigger sleeps with him in his bed so I thought it was so cute that he said that!  Whenever he does something he is proud of like dancing he says, "mom, watch!"  I love the fact that he calls popsicles "POKERS".  He can scream down the steps for his sister and you hear, "Marissa, Marissy, Marissa, SISSY."  Marissa asked me how many days until Brody's birthday, so I did the quick math and only 20 days until he turns 2!  I can't believe it! 

To end this post, I just want to write about Marissa and her LOVE to serve me breakfast in bed!  She always writes up a menu (with her daddy's help) and makes me stay in bed to bring me my breakfast.  Now you would think I only get this type of thing on special day's like my birthday or mother's day but NO.....she does it A LOT and I LOVE IT!  She sure knows how to make her mama feel good!
