Week 28

It's another great Tuesday in July.  Welcome back!  We're on our last week of swim practice preparing for Champs this week. I'm so looking forward to spending less time at the community pool and more time at our home pool.  I had a wonderful weekend in Santa Cruz with my oldest son and his water polo team.  It's so beautiful there on the coast and much cooler than it is here in the valley.  You can't go wrong at the ocean--love the smell, the view, and the fun.

Take a look at what else we did last week:

Day 189- Monday, 7/8/13
I'm here at Target working to re-stock my pantry and fridge after our mini vacation to Oregon--gotta feed those growing boys!

Day 190- Tuesday, 7/9/13
Tyler got a flat tire yesterday riding to practice.  His tires were worn pretty thin so John picked up a couple new tires today and worked to get him back on the rode.  He's so crippled when his bike is down and out. 

Day 191- Wednesday, 7/10/13
It was bring a friend to water polo night so Tyler brought Justin to give it a try.  He did great but still doesn't think it's the sport for him.  At least he tried.  I love the color of the water this time of night as the sun is setting.

Day 192- Thursday, 7/11/13
Rusty turned 1 year old this week.  He's such a big kitty now.  Look how tiny he was when we first brought him home.  He's really grown and has been a great addition to the family.  His current favorite pastime, when he's not napping, is chasing and catching flies.

Day 193- Friday, 7/12/13
Brandon was showing me how he can do a handstand now--what a fun and perfect summer evening thing to do on the cool grass.

Day 194- Saturday, 7/13/13
Ryan's mom, Brenda, took this picture of Tyler and some of his team mates at the beach before their first game in the Santa Cruz Water Polo Classic.  The t-shirt design was perfect this year and made for a great souvenir.

Day 195- Sunday, 7/14/13
All the water polo games were yesterday so today we got to play at the boardwalk before heading home.  The boys had a blast, and it was such a beautiful day to be out near the ocean.

That's all for this week.  Thanks for stopping by and hope to see you next week.



  1. Glad the water polo tournament went well! Love that Justin at least tried the water polo. To each his own. My kids all like to have their 'own' thing which I think is good. Have a great week!

  2. Well, if you must travel for water polo, what a great city for it to be hosted in♥ It looks like so much fun.

  3. Your grass looks so nice & inviting!
    We can't go in our grass in TX b/c of the chiggers & fire ants & weeds.
    Yours looks like lush & soft carpet. :)

    Glad that water polo went well & that you got to go w/ Tyler!
    Hope y'all are having a great summer!

  4. Happy birthday to your kitty!! I love all the Santa Cruz photos! Looks like a fun place to visit. I'm jealous that you got to spend some time at the ocean!

  5. Looks like a great week. You got some wonderful shots. I like the idea of photographing your grocery trip.

  6. AWESOME week- look at how tall those boys are. You weren't kidding!!! Looks like a great time. I love Santa Cruz.
