Jump in the Pool

Well we always said we'd have a house with a pool.  Somehow that didn't work out as planned, so the $12.99 Target special will have to do for now.  Gregg got her one that's a little nicer, but since the heat has put my backyard landscaping on hold there's not really a good place to put it.  So we're on the patio making due for now.  For some reason the hottest state in the union develops houses with backyards that are not big enough to put in a real pool.  Our crack (emphasis on crack) legislature allows the builders to make the lots and the streets smaller and smaller to cram more houses in each development increasing profit margins.  Not that I'm against profits, but geez come on give us some breathing room.  Once our standout immigration law goes into effect there won't be anyone to build them anyway.  If you don't live here, you've heard all about our attempt to de-Mexican the place, but the secret is when economic times were better everyone looked the other way while they built our houses, pools, resorts, and anything else we needed.  Not sure how I got here when I just wanted to show off a cute girl in a pool, but I digress...

In other news, we received Sabrina's birth certificate in the mail today.  The last piece of the adoption puzzle is put in place.  They told us it would take ten months, but it only took four.  So it's finally over.  Not much room to breathe, because we decided we're going to start again after the holidays.  The stress was so much fun the first time, without it I guess I'd feel like a fish out of water.  Unlike the fish below...

Summer fun in the pool looks great...Even if it is from Target.

She is sure to stay cool, now!

I feel for you, I work with red necks conservatives and all I hear is how AZ is doing it right on immigration...usually they are holding something hecho in Mexico or eating something picked by a migrant...yeah, they forget that stuff.

She is adorable, and that looks like a fine pool to me. That's rather like the ones I had growing up, anyway.

Also, congratulations on starting the process on No. 2! Will you have to go through all of the paperwork stuff again, or do they just keep some of it on file?

Michelle said...

Whew....so your gonna be back on good ole train ride again!? Exciting. But worth it, Im sure you know. Its fun having 2. Harder, bur more fun. Granted, yours wont be as close together in age as ours. I dont recommend that! ha.

Sabrina is a doll. Love her. Wish we could have play dates. Her and Kayla would be gorgeous together. And the could be little fishes together.

Mandi said...

Rhonda and Gerry W said...

Congrats on your decision. We are so happy for you guys!!!!

SonyaAnn said...

She is sooo cute! You three are an amazing little family and congratulation on the decision to adopt again!

mommy3 said...

To all 3 of you -- yes, adopt again (my 2 cents right up front from my fam of 3 chillins). So love your first paragraph -- and how you got there. Ms. S continues to be a little firecracker, IMHO, and I AM biased toward girls, ha.

bellygirls said...

Well that is exciting!!! Starting again!

Never a dull moment.

In addition - I'm loving the photos of Sabrina. I love how her personality shines through in every picture. :)

Gracie said...
