We are very fortunate to be surrounded by lakes where we live! We have a little lake/reservoir walking distance from our house.  Folsom Lake is literally ten minutes up the road.  It is our favorite thing to do as a family… be by the water, out in nature and if it can’t be the beach, then we will take the lake!!! This particular Sunday, we would have loved to take Charlie, our black lab, but he does not know how to act when it comes to being by the water and needing to snap a few pictures! We decided to leave him home that day, but this lake is his second home!!  I don’t think I have shared this with my readers yet, but I have recently taken on a full time job, still in the nursing profession but not at the hospital.  I needed to do this for the sake of benefits and finances as we prepare for Ben to be in school for nursing full time next year! It isn’t the most fun for me as I love to be home with the kids, but it is VERY temporary and will be worth it in the long run! Having said that, family time is SO PRECIOUS to me right now.  We cherish our evenings and our weekends together as a family.  You can see the joy in our eyes in these photos, just being together! Truly a piece of heaven for me!

We are wearing some of our favorite summer brands for the season in these photos! All of our swimwear, with the exception of my suit and Ben’s bottoms, are from Cabana Life! They are considered the leader in sun protective clothing!! I am really all about UV protective clothing while spending hours in the sun! It is supposed to be in the 80’s this weekend for us! You better believe we will be outdoors and in the water! My kids live for it!!  Ben and I are rocking our new Skechers! We pretty much live in Skechers as a family, all year round! Quality + comfort, gets me every time!!  My bathing suit is from Mazu Swimwear and I just discovered them this season! Ladies I am in love!! I love the styles and prints this company carries and I feel like they are made for women with curves which I totally need!! You can check out all of their options for suits here. I have linked details to all we are wearing below! As always, thank you so much for stopping by the blog!! XO
