Sums Up My Summer

They will wait forever for someone to push them on the swing! Julianna likes to yell for mommy to push her because mommy will push her the highest. There's pretty much no too high for them!

Today we had another fun summer activity - a playdate! When you're home alone with 7 kids you take all the company you can get :) So, my friend Kristy from The Shepherd Times and Joanna came over to hang out. Yea!

The Shepherd boys: C.J., Will and Ben (not so little anymore - go Ben!)

Look at this doll baby!

And beautiful Alyssa (the girls are beginning to figure it out - there are 2 Alyssa's!)

The big girls enjoyed entertaining the babies (Kaitlyn, Allyson and Julia with Ben and Alyssa):

CJ Shepherd:

Will Shepherd:

The other 3 on the swing: Caleb, Grace and Lauren Whitaker (Alyssa's big sisters):

She would've made a great big sister - Julianna LOVES babies! If she couldn't have Ben she was all over Alyssa - so cute!

Gotta love friends, swings and outdoor fun when it's not 100 degrees outside!

Yeah, for a playdate. I like when my girls are with other kids and have fun.

Enjoy your week.

Precious children....looks like fun.

I love playdates....we would be at your house everyday! But we live in Texas :(

Thanks for a great day...you have the best backyard! Those pics are great...your camera is awesome too. I can tell a big difference from mine. Oh, and now that I think about it, that was pretty funny when I said, "It is SOOO hard to get a picture of all three of my boys..." LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW!!! :) Ha!

Everyone looks like they are having so much fun! Wish we could have crashed the playdate!
