sunday was once again awesome. we are 4 for 4 i think? maybe 5 for 5?!?! don't pinch me. if i am dreaming, i want to keep on dreaming.

saturday was a warm one. sticky and hot. we made it to the farmers market which was beautiful and fun. our market has a hula hoop stand by a big grassy spot with shade trees. perfect place to get your hoop on. my littlest one is suddenly a hooping wonder! she just loves it. i have never ever been a hooping girl or momma. i am really curvy and have ample hips and for some reason i could never get one to stay up. and i have tried.... until just 2 weeks ago, at first friday, the same hoop stand and lady that stands at the market said these words to me, " you can hoop with this hoop. guaranteed." i laughed. but i figured ok why not, try one.more.time. and i did just as she told me and it WORKED! i was not graceful, but i was hooping and casey was so happy that i was hooping with her. so when we saw the stand on saturday we went right up and i tried again. i was already "rusty" but after a few attempts i found my groove. now we learned that this same lady and her magic hoops appear on wed in another part of our little city for hoop night in the park. i think casey and i may be making a trip out for that on wed. yay for hopping! the rest of saturday we laid low trying to stay cool under our ceiling fans. many cold showers were taken... thankfully the heat broke in the night and sunday was sunny and perfect beach weather once more.

last summer was awesome, sunny mostly dry, great beach days... i know both my husband and i did not expect a repeat summer like that, but so far this year has been pretty grand. and we soak it up as much as we can. and i got to feed my beach umbrella obsession too. bonus!

happy monday everyone.

I have fallen in love with hooping! it's seriously the best! I just got an LED hoop which is my favorite possession now. But I have a hoop to that i guarantee people will be able to hoop with and I have been right 10 out of 10 people so far!
