- fun in the sun makes for an outstanding weekend -

We've had absolutely beautiful weather here lately, so we spent this past weekend almost entirely outside....BBQing, sitting around our fire pit until late into the evening, eating outside at restaurants, playing in our backyard, running around by the water, and of course showering our love on the best daddy ever! It all made for a fabulous weekend!

While eating dinner at a local restaurant in our neighborhood on Saturday evening, Ellie decided to plop down on the ground to play. This is my daughter who hates getting dirty, and hates the feeling of sand or gravel in her shoes or even touching her feet or her legs...we have no idea what got into her, but she had a blast!

And let me tell me what a huge hit this is around our house lately! The water table was a wise purchase this year! She begs us to go outside to play with it everyday. And how can we resist a chubby toddler in a bathing suit?

We spent the late afternoon on Father's Day with our friends down by the water. The daddies got to relax in the sun while us mommies chased the kiddos all around. And even though it was Father's Day, we got a great shot of the kids with us moms. It is one of my favorite pictures of the whole weekend!

My wonderful friend Lisa, and her son, B, Ellie's best buddy in the whole world!

It took us so many shots to finally get both kids looking at the camera. By the time we were successful, we were all laughing so hard! The outtakes were hilarious to look at, but there were way too many of them to post! I'm not kidding, it took us forever to get this shot! Not perfection by any means, but that kind of sums up life with a toddler doesn't it? Never, ever perfect, but so much fun and entertaining!
