almost summer.

Even though we have been feeling under the weather with the worst ever spring allergies, we still have had to get out and try to enjoy this summer-like weekend as much as we were able. It has been so hot hoT HOT!

Our long weekend, in between having one day with a sick boy (and me somehow having a never ending migraine for over 4 days now---so tired of allergies!!!!), was full of water blasters, gardening, practice casting into the little pool, sparklers, robin watching and lots of ice cream breaks.

Not to mention haircuts...a haircut for one boy in particular who swore he didn't ever want to cut his hair. Until of course his long dark super thick hair was a bit much in the 90 degree with humidity weather - and then he said CUT IT OFF!

In fact, he liked the cut so much he posed and acted like a rock star. For hours. I can imagine his head feels pounds lighter and SO much cooler. They both look so good with their new styles. And the haircut is much better for the super soaker battles with the neighbor kids - you just towel off and go, no dripping! :)

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Spring allergies are miserable. Hope you feel better soon, it's not nice when your outdoors turns into a nightmare. We're going through the same haircut problem, which found me totally unprepared for: who knew that boys would be so particular about the length of their hair?!

Is that pool I see up on the roof of your car?
(Couldn't resist.)

Eric is the only one of us that gets allergies - June grass - thankfully! Does NOT sound fun.
And I'm so sorry 'bout the migraine. demmed things.

I agree. Love boys with short hair and girls with short hair too for that matter.
