Swimming and Pet Turtles

Happy Tuesday everyone!

I have felt a little out of it lately because of everything that happened with my cousin.  There is just a full range of emotions that are seriously draining.  But thank you so much for your thoughts and prayers.  He isn't out of the woods yet, but he is making progress.  God still is good and He still has a plan.  Praise the Lord for that.

So I thought I would share some pictures of what our summer days have been looking like.  Full of love and pools and friends.  I love it.  I am looking forward to school when I can get a little bit more time to myself, but I am truly enjoying our summer. 
Since we can't really have a dog {traveling too much}, my dad thought they needed some kind of animal to take care of.  So one day my dad came home from work with two baby turtles.  Can I just tell you, my boys were excited.
Well, we had just woke up puffy eyes and all...




The boys have been loving the sandbox. 
And playing in the pool with friends, a must have.






And if you follow me on Twitter you would know that I just bought myself a new Cannon Rebel T2i camera!  I am so excited about it and learning more about what it can do.  I just love having good photos!  If you have any tips for me, send them my way, I always wanting to learn more!

Have a great day!

What a great idea your dad had! I love the expressions on their faces. Also, that is SOME swimming pool. I could have fun in that, too. Will you be staying in CA for school?

My sorority mascot is the turtle and when I was in college one of our sisters bought a turtle. She thought the little guy was a gonner but luckily found out they hibernate before getting rid of him. Close call!

You all look like your having a blast of a summer. SO glad to hear your cousin is doing a bit better. My prayers are still being sent :)

When I was visiting my aunt a couple weeks ago she had a turtle as a pet for one of my cousins. They are such cute little things! Reminded me of when I was in elementary and got picked to watch the class turtles for a summer.
