It's not summer without watermelon! I realized that I hadn't bought one yet this summer 😱 I cut up a giant one last night for dinner and it was perfect! I think I've finally perfected choosing a watermelon (I look for a good yellow/butter colored spot where it's been sitting on the ground to ripen). I could sit and eat a whole one! Do you have any tricks for picking watermelon?

Oh hey #Phoenix you're looking good lately πŸ’™ I grew up here & am LOVING watching downtown & #cenpho coming into it's own again. So many great new spots to explore! How does your hometown compare now to when you were younger?

MISHEARD LYRICS -- one thing I never grew out of is mishearing/mis-singing lyrics. Now it's more that I know what I'm singing is wrong but it's what it sounds like to me so that's what I sing no matter how much it doesn't make sense πŸ˜‚ The boys still laugh that I sing "salad, wallet, livin it up in the city" instead of "stylin, whilen..." on Uptown Funk. We also still sing "shut up and answer me" instead of dance with me since Colton used to think those were the lyrics lol! What are some favorite mis-sung lyrics in your house?!

Sunset pool reflections as we cool off a bit before grilling tri-tip & romaine. What's for dinner at your house?!

First day of summer! What's your weather like? We got up to 119F yesterday 😱the best thing about a "dry heat" though is when you play in the water/swim the evaporation can cool you down enough that you can actually feel cold in the middle of the day so if we are spending time outside it's usually in the shade & in the pool!

I no longer have kids, I now only have teens. Trying to focus on this awesome stage in their lives while holding on to the memories of them being my babies. I really do feel blessed to have such amazing kids! Happy 13th to my inspiring, handsome, strong willed, determined, funny, talented, big hearted boy. You will always be my baby πŸ’™

Riding a bike & filming is NOT easy πŸ˜‚ #ad we had so much fun in @discovertorrance last week. I fell in love with their uncrowded beach and am ready to go back to finish "The Strand" bike trail! More on what we did on the blog today. #DiscoverTorrance #familytravel

Happy Father's Day! What did the dads in your life want to do today? We slept in, had breakfast nachos, watched tv, saw his dad (mine lives in CA), grilled steaks, swam, he smoked a cigar and is now watching motocross outside. He didn't get to go use his new fishing rod, but maybe later this week!

We finally rode Luigi's Rollickin Roadsters for the first time and IT'S SO CUTE! Mater is one of my favorites and this one has the same fun in just a little bit of a different way. The boys loved it too! We can't get enough of Carsland when we're at @disneyland and loved seeing the world we were just walking through in Cars 3. Have you seen it yet? What did you think?!

18 summers with our kids, that can't be right can it?! I made sure to soak up time with my boys this week thanks to a reminder from Tanya at @myhappygrace (guest post on my blog - link in profile). I always thought about this age, how fun it would be to have boys old enough to adventure but be self sufficient and NEED to remember not to let it fly by. Less electronics & more attention. We had a good week while I still got work done. I've learned that it CAN happen, but the intention has to be there. I will work on this more! What are you working on in your relationships?

Some of the best new treats for #SummerOfHeroes @disneyland are the frozen ones! Perfect for summer. The boys loved the shave ice from #BiFrosties this "I Am Shave Ice" is a family fave - root beer + vanilla + a scoop of ice cream SO good! Are you planning on checking out the superhero fun this summer?! #disneyland #HeroUp #yum #shaveice #californiaadventure

Celebrating this guy this week. His last week of being a "kid". He turns into a teenager next week 😭
