Soaking up the last few days of summer.
Why does school have to start so early???
And yes I realize schools in Arizona started last week or the week before,
It's all too early!
Don't get me wrong.
I love fall just as much as the next person.
In fact, i don't think I've ever met a person and I've definitely NEVER met a blogger that didn't go on and on and on AND ON (MYSELF included) about how much they love the fall.
I am getting excited for football and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.
And the now NINE (counted last night) jack o lanterns growing in my pumpkin patch.
I'm just not quite ready to hang up the swimsuits yet...

Baby Calvin fell asleep IN the swimming pool.
Slumped right over onto Andrea and started snoring.
No joke.
We all laughed.
And then Andrea moved him to the blankets.

And I most definitely have not had enough firecracker shave ice yet.
They put pop rocks and cream on top.
Ice cream at the bottom.
Tiger's blood, piƱa colada, and blue raspberry flavors.
Like a firecracker in your mouth.
Good thing too,
since it's named the firecracker shave ice.
Summer summer summer time:)

MMM pumpkin cookies! and of COURSE you HAVE to grow pumpkins when you are a HMB-ite! and there are such unique foods in Utah, firecracker icee?

Wow, that sounds delicious. I have to be honest. I saw some leaves falling today, and did a little skip. It made me very happy. But I am not sure I would be ready to say goodbye to the firecracker shaved ice. That sounds absolutely heavenly! And I am not sure I would be ready to see Max out of her cute little bathing suite, either, to be perfectly honest.
