I think the girls will have many hours of entertainment this summer from the bow & arrow sets we bought them today!

Today's breakfast was brought to you - or us, I should say - by the letters B B and Q...and by my hubby!

One of my favorite parts of getting the end-of-year report cards. I love school supplies!

Saying good night (and good riddance) to Day #18 of back pain. Praying for the day when I can wake up pain-free...

Malia was excited to win one of the door prizes at the art show we went to (in support of a couple of the girls' friends). It says "Just gotta go with the flow."

Cozying up with the new body pillow I bought today, in the hopes of getting more comfortable at night given the fact that I'm no longer allowed to sleep in my favorite position anymore. It's hard but if it can help prevent another back injury then I'll give it a shot!

Swim suits and freezies...happy first official day of summer!

Ice cream and strawberries...with a side of Nutella. Because I want to and because it's delicious!!

The girls were quite fascinated by this fun looking convertible in front of us on our way to the city this afternoon. And no, I wasn't taking pictures while driving, this photo is courtesy of Little Miss Malia.

Tonight after Malia's soccer game, I wanted to treat the girls to ice cream as a thank you for all of their help the last few days. Love my big girls!

The girls have really been a big help to me these last couple of days as I nurse my injured back. Cooking, cleaning and laundry have been done on small scales and I am so appreciative!

Joelle was sweet enough to help her little sister with practicing piano since I was stuck on the couch with a thrown-out back.

Grrr...I was getting really tired of seeing this screen on my phone today while trying (unsuccessfully) to beat my current level in Candy Crush.

The view of Main Street from the top of the Ferris wheel. Day 2 of the fair was great but we're exhausted!!

The annual fireworks at our small town big fair weekend!

Oh sisters...they can fight like cats and dogs but still sometimes love dressing alike, celebrating their sisterhood.

This is just one of the many things on my to-do list for tomorrow...

We are dog-sitting for a week or so for our friends who are in Ethiopia picking up their adopted son while the regular dog-sitters are on holidays. The girls are already loving it!
