A fun, hot summer!

What a summer it's been! Caleb and I fled west for a month trying to escape the sweltering heat and humidity that abounds in Louisiana this time of year. We spent the first couple of weeks taking care of 2 of Caleb's cousins while their mom (my sister) was on a trip. Thanks to aunts Caitlyn and Ali we all had a blast and enjoyed our quality time together.

Here's my little posse:
Highlights included:

*a trip to the trout farm with Grandpa Costley where Caleb caught his first fish (despite the seeming lack of interest conveyed by the sucking of his thumb he was actually quite the fisherman:)
*a quick trip to Palo Alto to see friends which included a visit with Clarence, Jim and their adorable puppy, Friday
*some time at Bear Lake to play in the sand and splash in the water and best of all, ride in the truck with Grandma Costley
*lots of cuddle time with Grandpa Costley
*getting makeovers from aunt Caitlyn
*Lots of cousin bonding

Unfortunately, when we arrived back in Shreveport, the heat had not subsided one bit so we've taken to afternoons lounging in our very spacious backyard pool.

No heat could make life too miserable when I get to see this face everyday, though:)

These pictures couldn't have come at a better time. We miss you guys and hearing Caleb say "waer" to the pool everyday.

Great lounging pool-I'd love a group shot of when Dave climbs in too. With a pool that big, you should just have a home water birth!

I think Donovan wants another jamba after seeing that picture. thanks a lot....
