{ Just checking in }

Not even sure how many of you are still out there reading my blog, because I've been absolutely dreadful at keeping it updated.

But on the off chance that someone is still lurking around and reading or wondering where I've disappeared to, I'm checking in and saying hi.

It's been so hot here, the temperatures have been staying between 106-113 degrees, it's just scorching so when we're not traveling or visiting anything, we're in the house, in the nice cool air conditioner. Talking, laughing until our stomachs hurt, watching movies, playing games etc.

It's been fun. A LOT of fun.

The kids have been enjoying the pool, as all kids do, so I thought I would share some quick pictures for you to see.

There's been plenty of watermelon and high consumption of it too, it's juicy, it's sweet and I happen to believe that no other fruit is as tasty on a hot summer day.


Tiffany enjoying her watermelon in the pool

Colby enjoying his too but making sure that it is safe, the whole time his arm was way above the water with the slice of watermelon in the air LOL

Jasmine loves the water, this child could stay in the pool all day long.


I think this one perfectly depicts the day to day here, lazy, sunny and fun.

I love this one I got of Tiffany coming out of the water, so glad I was able to capture this moment.

The two girls coming up for air

This adorable little face, I can't get over how much he looks like my brother.

My baby boy enjoying his pool time.

Pool time in Arizona means wearing caps and shirts because 5 minutes straight in that sun and you have a nasty sunburn.

Thursday early morning we are heading to California, to Disneyland, we are so excited, for me at least it's been a dream since I was a child and to be able to fulfill it is just a blessing. I can't wait to be there and take photos and share everything with you.

I also have a ton of reviews and giveaways coming up, but those will be up end of next week so keep an eye out for that. In the meantime, you can enter the Personalized Baby Burp Cloth Giveaway below, so far there are only 4 entries. Even if you don't have a little one of your own, be sure to pass it on to any friends or family members with little ones.

I'm off to spend more time with the family, I hope you're all having a wonderful summer and staying cool.


  1. I'm still reading! You just enjoy your time with family. Have fun in California :)

  2. Hi Sandra! I'm just catching up because I've been gone for a few days. Sounds like a great time is being had by all and lots of memories are being made. Love the pictures!

  3. Sounds like fun being in the water everyday! Enjoy Disneyland! Some of my fondest childhood memories are from visiting the park. Just make sure you buy your tickets into the park a day or two in advance because they sell out quickly.

  4. Have fun at disneyland! Take advantage of the fast passes! =)

  5. Still here! Glad you are taking time to enjoy the summer

  6. I am still here too - have a great time in California with your family, Sandra! They look as if they are having a really good time in that pool too!

  7. Sandra ~ You are making wonderful memories with your kids. Those are priceless.

    Have a wonderful time at Disney Land.


  8. Stay cool? Well, will you hate me if I say that yesterday we turned off the air and threw open all the windows? The breeze is to die for and its in the 80's. As much as I hate winters....I LOVE these Ohio summers!!

  9. Sandra,
    I'm still reading!! I'm so glad you and your family are enjoying their visit. It really looks like y'all are having a blast. Have fun in CA--we moved from Edwards AFB in 2001--never thought I would say this, but---I do miss CA--just a little bit!! I hope y'all continue having a lovely time together.

  10. Yay Disney! Have a great trip! :-)

  11. Hi Sandra! Still reading and enjoying your blog...I'll be in Tucson during the month of July, staying with my best friend who has a Big Pool! Gosh, I LOVE Disneyland, have a GREAT time there. Do Splash Mountain and Indiana Jones, for sure. And try to fit in Soaring, over in Disney California Adventure~~you'll be really glad you did, it's amazing.
    Have fun, fun, fun...will love to see your pics.

    Be Safe,
    Elizabeth in Mississippi

  12. Hi Sandra,
    I'm new to the blogging world, but have read your blog for awhile now. You take really amazing pictures! What kind of camera do you have? You will LOVE Disneyland, I was there as a child but now we go to Disneyworld and take our children. It's magical no matter how old you are. :-) Have a great time.

    Blessings, Jill

  13. I was wondering why your kids were wearing clothes but I stayed with my aunt and cousins for three months one summer in Tucson, AZ so I totally get it now. Over here in VA it's been steadily in the high 90's and a couple days broke 100. So, with a 23 month old I am limiting her time outdoors, forcing us to stay safe in the cool air conditioned house :)
    Have fun at Disneyland and in California. I have been to Disney several times and lived in CA for six years. There is lots to do and I bet you will have a good time :)

  14. Hi Sandra......so glad you're having a wonderful visit with your family. Have a good time at Disney....and say hello to Minnie for me.


  15. Disneyland will be wonderful.

    Love the pool pictures.

  16. We are going to try to go to Disneyland when we get to the mainland around the end of July or the beginning of August. I can't wait to hear all about your trip.

  17. I'm still here!

    I, too, have lagged behind in posting. Seems June got away from me. Hoping to do better in July.

    I love the 2 action shots of the girls' hair swinging out of the water! Nice job!

    Have a great day!
