I've been neglecting a lot of things lately, most noticeably my blog and my housework. I have a couple of reasons for this: 1) It's been freaking hot outside; 2) I just can't get into the workaday swing of things since our fabulous vacation; and 3) It's been freaking hot outside.

Oh, and our A/C was malfunctioning for awhile and it's been freaking hot outside.

Anyway, I took some pictures of the littles yesterday enjoying the lake while I enjoyed the shade of my fabulous new beach umbrella. It was nice and peaceful yesterday with a minimum of boat activity and I was feeling very blessed while I watched my kids play.

My birthday umbrella... love it!

Young entrepreneurs

The littles decided awhile ago that they wanted to open a lemonade stand. They have asked about it constantly. Right before we went on vacation, I found this great portable lemonade stand on Zulily and I knew they would love it. It's so cute, right? It came with stickers for decorating and it can also be used as a puppet stage. It was delivered while we were away, and when the littles saw the box, they couldn't wait to set up shop. They made ten dollars on Sunday, and Thomas made a dollar more on Monday when he sold some lemonade to the garbage crew while they were picking up our trash. :)

This was one of our best vacations ever... the resort was beautiful and everyone had a wonderful time. Without further ado, the video recap:
