too much fun

The kids and I took a little road trip to my sisters house this week. This is one of our favorite summer trips. Quiet and private, we don't even leave the grounds once we get here. Many fantastic memories have happened in this home.
Our days are all pretty much the same. This was us this morning. My sister in her jammies. We then head outside to the pool for the afternoon, and are back in these chairs after dinner. Too much yarn. Too many projects. Too much fun!
Happy Weekend Everyone.
