It's Summer....

It's Summer time and folks are busy going on vacation, or "stay-cation."  It's just a time we kick back a little while the kids are not in school.  And sometimes blogging takes a little break too.  I'm here.  It's been a little hectic around here.  Our kitty got out a week ago.
He got out during the day on the fourth of July.  It would have been fine had it NOT been the fourth!  But the fireworks had to have spooked him.  He's been gone a week now.  Flyers are posted, he's on the internet!  He's a famous kitty.  But alas.  He is still missing.

To distract from the sadness of our missing furry friend, and to beat the first real heat of summer, I got some water toys for the kids.  And it worked out nicely.  Fun was had by all.

It worked great!  Much laughter ensued, and everyone got a nice cool down.
Kristin was not pleased with this one, but I love her hair in this!
Ryan had the most fun I think...not sure....it doesn't matter.  The thing cost me less than $5 at Target.  And was totally worth the smiles, laughter and silliness that it brought.

What are you doing for fun this summer?

Best I can do is go swimming... and our pool has actually been semi-warm.. It's never warm though!

Sigh. Someday when I have a yard that isn't rocks, I'll get one of those.

Poor kitty cat. Hope he comes home soon

So sad about your cat, that is hard! You are genius with the water toys and have inspired me. I am going to pull mine out today. Love the photos!

I can't believe the water slide was so inexpensive! What the heck?! So much fun!

So sorry to hear about your kitty. :(
