Summer Fun!

The girls and I have been visiting my parents for the past few days, relaxing and enjoying the sunshine. We went to Paul Lake today, had a nice picnic with my little bro, and played on the beach with the girls. Here's some pictures I took, of course I'm not in any of them since I'm always the one taking the photos:

My sweet baby...

Sophia, I think your hat is too small! lol

Isabella is so proud of her sandcastle

My sweetie pies!

Aren't grandparents great? I'm so lucky, my mom & dad usually take the girls and entertain them for a few hours here and there so I have a chance to relax. I've been needing this for a while.

What are you all doing this summer? I'd love to hear what your plans are!
