A little of what the Thompson's are up to.

I'm, back!!

I'm back, from nowhere in particular, just the abyss of summer and we've been up to nothing in particular too, being home, running errands, going to the beach, swimming with cousins and friends, going to the park, until it got hot about a week ago anyway. School doesn't start for another week and 1/2 so we are just going to enjoy these last few days, probably take another trip to the beach, we just went out to mothers beach and we had a blast, usually Zuma is our spot, its beautiful and you really feel like your out of the city but I decided to change it up and try something new. Usually I avoid the 405 like the plague (and it sucked on the way home) but my girls loved mothers beach, the best way I could describe it to you is that its like being at a lake, the water is still and that is what my girls loved, being able to get in the water, its shallow too, even when Kate waded far out the water still only came up to her waist.
splashing in the water and the girls walking on their hands "doing the fishy walk"
Kate made this island, she worked on it for a long time and was very proud of the finished product.
Sara loves to get the sand all over, at one point she would put her head down and just rub it around in the sand, she was one sandy mess by the time we headed out.
Whilst shopping for some new school clothes for Kate I found these cute dresses at The Children's Place on sale so I couldn't resist.
This is one reason I'm sad for Kate to start school, one morning a few weeks ago when the girls woke up it was pretty overcast outside, Kate was sure it was going to rain (it never did but I thoroughly enjoyed those summer days) and got herself and Sara all dressed for it.
Hope your enjoying summer too, its over for some already, I don't like the triple digit weather but its good for home made popsicles, Sara loves these things, frozen berries, plain yogurt and a little powdered sugar.

I know it's such a cliche thing to say, but honestly your girls are getting so big. I can't believe how much they've grown!
