July 12 on 12 ~ Summertime and the livin' is easy!

Happy 12 on 12! I thought that I wouldn't have much to take pictures of since I didn't really have a big day planned, but I got some really special shots today...well, special to me, at least. For those of you asking - 12 on 12 is a fun challenge that is supposed to showcase just a day in your life every month. So on the 12th of each month, I take a bunch of pictures of our day (regardless of what we're doing) and then choose just 12 to represent that day.

Here's Taryn in her pink Converse. I love it when she wears these. They're sporty, yet...pink! Just like her!

Here's Oso. He doesn't change much. He is just as hyper as ever. I sometimes wish I could have the Dog Whisperer here. He's not bad...just hyper. What did I expect from a Chihuahua mixed with Jack Russell? I love this crazy pup!

Here's a nice shot of my Bogenvelia plant. I have one on each side of the backyard. Unfortunately, it is not within plain view. It's kind of tucked in the side-yards and I wish they were more visibile. I love the bright color of them, but hate the spikey thorns.
Here's some left over 4th of July stuff...we like it, so it's up still!
Hannah had Marco on the floaty and took him around the pool a few times. It wasn't long before he fell asleep. Oh yes...he does have Dora the Explorer Swimmers on. Oh, well! His cheap mom wants to use up the ones that Naomi never used. Hey! Those things aren't cheap. LOL
Hannah recently gave me a pedicure....thanks, Hannah!

Naomi doesn't like to go past the first step in the pool, so she sits there, on the edge and watches. Well, today something caught her eye. She saw these ants working the day away. At first, she was scared. Then her sister reminded her that Ni Hao Kai Lan (a cartoon) had ants on her show. After that she was very happy to let the ants continue in their work, unharmed.
What I could see from the floaty I was laying on in the pool. Ah, yes. That is blue sky!

Self-portrait - Yes, I was so relaxed that I don't even care that you see me like this!
These are the diving sticks that my girls love to play with. You throw them in and then race to gather them up.

Here she is...at the edge of the pool.
Last, but not least...here is my Big Guy who will be one year old on the 30th of this month. He got a little burnt today, but not too bad. His hair is getting curlier than ever. I love it. He's been having a rough week though, because he has a couple teeth that are coming out. Poor guy - cute as ever anyway!
So, that's it. Marco and I had to work tonight for a few hours, but other than that, pretty relaxing day with the family. I love Saturdays like this!

My favorite picture is the one with the diving sticks.
Thanks for sharing your day with me.

The 12 on 12 challenge sure lets you see the good things in an ordinary day doesn't it?
TFS :)

Looks like you had a great day. Little hint with the bouganvillea thorns .. the more you water them, the more thorns and less flowers you'll get. Cut the watering back a bit to them and watch what happens .. works for me everytime!
