We should have been fish!

Here are some pictures of the girls swimming. They both love to swim ... if is definitely their favorite summer pastime. Naomi loves to play with Ariel in the pool and pretend they are mermaids together... her imagination is growing so fast. Playing pretend is a daily activity at our house. You might think Lanie would be scared of the water but she is fearless.... a regular fish! She loves to swim and splash and dump water out of cups. The girls have so much fun playing together. they are such a joy to watch.

Just jammies

Just us girls being goofy! Playing around on mommy's bed in our jammies

Bath Time!

Just some fun new pictures ... since I have been such a blogger slacker!

4th of july

I love the 4th of July it has always been a favorite holiday of mine. San Angelo does an awesome job at the 4th exspecially for such a small west Texas town. We actually have the fourth largest 4th of July celebration in the state, drawing a crowd of about 35000 people.

The celebration really begins on the 3rd with the San Angelo symphony pops concert. This is by far my favorite event. In fact I love it so much that I have joined the rest of the "crazies" in San Angelo and annually participate in the "running of the tarps" (see above blog for an in depth discussion of this event). The pops concert includes these exciting events: the posting of the colors by goodfellow afb, a b-1 fly bye from Abilene.... numerous cannons blasts from the cannons at fort concho (brought over for the event) and of course patriotic music and fireworks.

So here is a great group picture ( minus me and D-dad) of us at the pops concert. On the 4th of July me maw invited all the family in town over for hamburgers, swimming for the kids in the back yard and of course homemade ice cream. We had a wonderful time. After supper we all headed over to the San Angelo colts stadium to see the fireworks.

Happy 4th of July!
