It's Official....Summer is here!

It's soooo hot!!! Later this week it's supposed to be 97 degrees. Saturday morning, Allison, Jill & I went walking at the lakes. This has become our Saturday morning routine. Like I said, It was hot. I was extremely proud of us because even with the heat we managed to cut 5 minutes off of our time. After the walk it was home to get ready for my nephew Logan's 2nd birthday party.

We had such a good time watching all the kids run wild! The party was at Logan's house & his mom & dad had  an "inflatable". When I was a kid it was called a space walk. I don't know who renamed them inflatables & bounce houses but whatever. 
He loved jumping!
This is Logan with his friends Riley & Lane. Dean & I are Lane's Godparents. His mom is my BFF Vicki.

There were also kiddie pools & water guns.
I'm not sure what Logan liked more.
Logan & Lane

Then it was time for cake!
My SIL Lydia, made the cake. I thought she did a great job. It tasted good too.
He grabbed some icing as soon as he got close enough. He almost burned his lips because he hasn't quite mastered the concept of blowing out candles.
He enjoyed his cake & ice cream! Then there were presents!!
That's Jordan  helping Logan with his gifts. He's Logan's cousin & Godfather. Logan did a good job opening his gifts until he got to this one.
Once he saw what his mama & daddy gave him it was all over. Luckily, when his back was turned for a second his Nonk (Uncle Dean) grabbed it & put it out of sight so he'd open the rest of his gifts.

This is my cousin & Godchild, Dylan. He's getting to the age where he's not interested in pics. I think he's too cute!
Brooke is Dylan's little sister. She's also my Godchild. Yes, I have lots of Godchildren! All but 2 of them were in attendance.
The bucket of water was to attempt to keep wet grass out of the space walk.
Another pic of the birthday boy. I bust out laughing everytime I look at this one. The theme for his party was Curious George. Logan LOVES him some George! His mama got those cute little George glasses & all the kids were wearing them. He makes that face a lot. Everytime he does it I immediately think "What you talkin' about Willis??" HA!! I always loved Different Strokes. Logan  looked like a little California surfer boy with his sun bleached blond hair, board shorts & ridiculously dark tan for a 2 yr old. You can't tell in the picture but he is soooo dark. His Tante (me) is really, really jealous!!

This is Amira. Her parents are friends with Scott & Lydia. She has the most amazing eyelashes & she's really tiny.

She was mesmerized by the hanging decoration things that Lydia had. I've probably mentioned before that Logan is a bit of daredevil.
No, he didn't just put one foot on the side of the INFLATABLE pool & get in. He managed to balance himself on the edge standing with both feet on the side & then he'd jump in. He thought this was the funniest thing in the world. Then the slide was moved to the pool.
If anyone's wondering, Logan has a thing about his shoes. He wants them on ALL THE TIME. Even when he's in the pool.
Then he jumps out & lands.....
in the mud puddle!! There's no doubt about it, he's ALL BOY!!

Saturday was our niece Camille's, birthday. Camille is Dean's brother's daughter. They live in Texas so we didn't see them this weekend. This is Camille when she was at our house last year for her birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CAMILLE! We hope you had a great day & got to do something fun!!



  1. I love all the action pictures you got of Logan. He had himself a good time! Love the cake Lydia made, it was so yummy!

  2. Oh how fun! Happy birthday to Logan and Camilee~!..Christine

  3. Oh, what fun! Kids parties are the best! It's so easy to keep them entertained and having fun! It's hot here, too! Suppose to be 98 tomorrow!"Cooling down" to the low 90's by the end of the week! I think I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the pool this year!

  4. Traci, Camille will be thrilled to see her picture posted on your blog! She had a great time camping this weekend and is looking forward to her Florida beach trip with Meme.

    Tonight we made rainbow cupcakes for her class. They look great and she's excited to get to celebrate her birthday at school. Usually they're out of school by now.

  5. Aww, what adorable pictures!

    I think the kids enjoyed Saturday. Mom kept asking how Lane was... 'cause he "kept taking care of Logan". She thougt that was the sweetest thing.

  7. What great pictures...Happy Birthday Logan and Camilee!! =) XO ~Liz

  8. Cuteness overload! It's crazy hot here too!

  9. Looks like so much fun! Looking at some of these pics makes me want to go jump in the pool right now! We are still having some crazy weather here in Cali...some days are really hot and some are really cold. It's no wonder people keep getting sick! Although I know that once it gets and stays really hot, I'll be ready for it to be cold again, lol. Hope you are having a great day! :-)
