Sunshine is My Friend

Sunshine is my friend. The kids and I headed to the WaterPark today with some friends of ours. Although, as a mom, I'm supposed to say that summer days filled with water and sun are all for the kids, they aren't. They are just as much for me. I love being in the sun. I know that it isn't healthy for me, and that I'm supposed to wear lots of sunscreen...but, I can't hardly help myself. My friend and I hashed this over today, also. Vanity has very little to do with this obsession of sunshine. I won't lie...I really like being tan, but we decided (well, it was her idea and I just agreed with her) that it really isn't vanity...it's therapy. I can be in the grouchiest mood, lay out in the sun for a few hours, and end the day feeling like a million bucks. Don't know what it is.

I should be more worried about my skin. I know, Mom, I should. But, I can't help it. I just like it.

Now I want to clear this up...it isn't just any sun. I don't like being hot and sweaty and in the sun. That is not the same thing. I like being near water and in the sun. I need to be able to cool off--quickly!

My little fellas love the sunshine and water, too. They look so cute when they are all sun-kissed. Summer days are spectacular!!

Here are my little men all fresh with evidence of today's fun in the sun!

Yep, I'm a sun lover too! And not nearly as careful as I should be...especially in the intense Colorado sun.

I did put on lots of sunscreen today because we were outside a LOT!

Hope you're having a fantastic 4th!

Your boys are SO cute!
