Last Day of Summer Vacay

Sooooo boo hooing has started: this is my last official day of summer.  I go back to work Monday, and this summer has officially 110% flown by.  It's crazy that I'm 12.5 weeks pregnant and that alone has made the summer whoosh by in an instant too!  I am excited about the new school year -- my third year at UA!  Woot! -- and all of the cool new tech tools I am going to roll out to the staff and students, but gosh, I am going to miss being home with my burritos all the time!  Such a double edge sword: I love my job but I love being home with my kids too.  I bet February will be here before I know it and I'll be having another little one to fill up my maternity leave with!

We spent a large part of this week at the pool or park -- and it was WONDERFUL.  Mike was off a couple of days, and is on evenings so he had the mornings and lunchtime free with us!  Woot!  We have a BIG change to Mike's schedule coming in a couple weeks...I don't want to delve into it now, but let's just say his schedule might get even crazier than it is now.  Eeekkk!  But we're both positive and optimistic it'll be for the best and work out in our family's best interest.  Keep your fingers crossed on that one for us.

Little water babies, aren't they?!  We hit up the pool this week with cousin Lizzy and our friends the Polans and it was so much fun!  Patrick is crazy and we hardly see him he's running around and swimming (under water!!) so much and going down the slide a zillion times.  Rosie, since she's not walking just likes to camp out in one spot and occasionally crawl around and skin up her knees on the hard cement, but really just parks it in one place and is oh-so-easy to watch!  She recently started randomly standing up by herself not holding maybe walking is in her near future?!  Haha!  Hang tight -- you'll be the first to know!

Wow. What crazy changes in a year!  I love it so!  Timehop is the best app ever, by the way.  I love seeing my old pictures every day from years ago!

I buzzed Mike's head earlier this week and Patrick watched and wanted his hair to look like daddy's, so, Mike got the buzzers out and BAM!  Patrick looks like he's 10 now!  But he's handsome as ever and loving his new cut, so we may keep it this length (sorry mom) for a bit.

I want to make note that Ro went in the ballpit the other night for the first time without screaming her head off and hating it, and it was so great!  She had such a blast playing and no tears were shed!  Woot!

We dined out for Officer Flamion again last night and we took it upon ourselves to snap (thank you Apple Watch remote!) a family pic before heading out.  It's so hard to get a good family pic these days so I'm glad this one worked out with all of us in our police gear!

Patrick promptly passed out 2 seconds into the drive, and he was so funny because he was SO TIRED he literally couldn't stay away so Mike recorded this video of him dozing off while we were on the way to dinner.  I've watched it like 10 times and just keep laughing.  His eyebrows at the end kill me!  Haha!

Today my mom and her posse of friends from high school, named the "Kirkwood Girls", a big group of them got together at a local park and had their grandkids come for a fun little park playtime in the morning!

All of the kids had a blast playing on the playground and in the sprinkler!  Patrick especially -- what a wild child!  Haha!  But I loved seeing the kids play (despite my allergies going nuts and nausea STILL lingering around!) and have a blast and getting to catch up with some of my friends I don't see nearly as often as I'd like.

It was such a fun morning and Mike brought the 6D and was the photog and snapped some great pics, as seen above.  He really is a great photographer, isn't he?!  I'll keep him :)

So that's about it!  A wild Friday night is planned here -- I have a doc appointment with my allergist and then nada.  I'll have to figure out what my belly is in the mood for for dinner tonight with the minions.  I have FOUR photoshoots this weekend (dang!) before work starts back up Monday.  I am really going to try to keep up my bloggin' as much as possible, but gosh, with the school year starting and the busyness of that I sometimes slack...but forgive me.  I like to keep this digital baby book going as detailed and for as long as possible, and I know as it gets closer to #3's arrival the busier I get!  But!  I'm committed and I hope to keep it going strong through the rest of 2016 and into 2017!  Woot!  Have a great weekend friends...happy Friday!
