Summer Break

We haven’t done a house project since June and haven’t done a major renovation since we finished the Master Bathroom in May.  What the heck have I been doing all summer?  Sitting on the couch eating bon-bons watching Phelps, Bolt and The Bachelorette?  Um, maybe a little.  Don’t judge me.  Mostly though we decided to slow down and savor the summer while the boys are so little.
There were trips to the lake:

I wish I could bottle the smell of little boys in the summertime; sunscreen, dirt and grass as well as the perfect sounds of their giggles, splashes in the pool and squeals as they chase lightening bugs on summer nights.  How did I get so lucky as to have these lovable, sweet, messy, funny Martin Men in my life?  There is simply nothing better than family and I am so blessed with mine :)
