Hey, Summer! Nice of you to show up.

I really hope someone isn't playing a really cruel hoax.

But summer, my friends, is finally here. 

And yes, it is the middle of July. 

We decided a celebration was much needed... all weekend long. 

We started Friday off right by heading to this cute little bar with outdoor seating and spent the evening drinking ice cold Miller Lites. 

On Saturday, we woke up super early and actually took our pups kayaking. Yes, you heard me right. We took our dogs kayaking. Of course Samson decided to give me a heart attack by jumping in and almost drowning. But he and Sienna had the time of their lives. That evening, our good friend threw this A-MA-ZING party at her sister's house (a.k.a. mansion). 

Sunday was quite busy as well. My company sponsored an IronMan. We decided to volunteer for the day. And let me tell you, I can't quite decide if these athletes are inspiring or just plain insane. I'm going to go with the latter. Half the time they potty their pants, have salt caked all over their bodies from dehydration, and pass out/seizure at the finish line. Needless to say, these athletes are quite amazing. 

After volunteering, we had a double-header softball game. Then we finished off the week right with a cookout at our friend's house (and a bad case of the Sunday Blues).

At least Monday is almost over...and almost time for another fun-filled weekend!!!

Oh Summer! Come to Mama!

What a cutie I have!

Poor Sienna just wanted to come up to the front seat

Samson thought he was captain of the ship...until he decided to jump in
