the past few days have been so beautiful. almost warmer then i remember last summer being. there is nothing i love more, then the happy sounds of kids playing in the sunshine. my children are drawn to water, drawn to water fights and the sprinkler. not a day goes by that someone in our house doesn’t mention how incredible it would be to have a swimming pool. last night just for fun we looked at all the houses for sale with swimming pools and i think we settled on a little gem in deep cove. a tennis court, a swimming pool and a whole guest house (larger then our current home) for grandma! if only…. all kidding aside, we are very happy in our humble home, but it is fun to dream sometimes. for now, we will stick to popsicles and sprinklers and i will be thankful for what we have and for the happy screams i can hear after dinner in our yard.
