Combat boots and sunbathing

So I am a bit behind on my blogging! Lately we have been spending lots of time outdoors and at the pool. Lyssa just might turn into a very adorable fish! We had the pleasure of having my almost 18 year old, newly graduated cousin Kelsey come and stay with us for a week last week and she kept us going! We had so much fun with Kelsey, even though she did force me to eat enough Ben and Jerry's ice cream to last me a lifetime! Jamey had a surprise BBQ over the weekend and invited all 15 of his classmates and their families over for dinner Saturday night. (He gave me about 2 days notice...) We ended up with about 8 of his coworkers and their families in attendance and it was a lot of fun. It gave me the chance to meet the men and women that he has been working with for the last few months and are stationed here at Fort Sam Houston with him and their wives/husbands/children. 
Our garden is blooming and here is the first Eggplant! We would have tomatoes but some short blonde/blue eyed child picks and EATS the green ones so they never have a chance to ripen up! I still can't believe that she EATS the green tomatoes....
Lyssa still LOVES shoes and everyday when her Daddy gets home from work she puts on his combat boots and stomps around the house in them. I am continually amazed that she can actually walk around in them, but she can! 

And here are a few random pictures that I took today while we were playing outside. It was about 110 degrees per our outdoor thermometer and it was HOT so we play outside a while come in, cool off, drink water and head back out for more fun in the sun!

Her sun me when she's a teenager cause she already has this down and she's not quite 2 years old!!!
