Well, I'm delinquent once again on updating my blog, so here are some very grossly overdue updates. :) I'd like to start doing better (for real this time) because this blog is on my online scrapbook. I've really resorted to Facebook to document my goings-on these days, but I still want to provide more thoughtful... thoughts? here than I do on Facebook. So standby for really deep thoughts, Mer Show Style.

So this is what I've neglected to post the last few months:

1. We built a pool, which was a dream come true for both Sheridan and me. Both of us have wanted one since we were kids, and we finally made it happen for ourselves. We traveled to San Diego in February for Katie's baptism and the kids were so horrible on the plane that we agreed not to vacation with them for a very long time. The pool broke ground immediately after. :) It's our staycation for a long time to come!! All we do is swim on the weekends - hosting friends and their families for swim days and/ or just spending quality time with each other every hot summer weekend day... like today! We've had 2 family swim sessions today. :) Here is the collection of photos from throughout the project - it started in February and finished in May and was a very time-consuming project.

2. Speaking of Katie's baptism in February in San Diego, we had an awesome visit (minus the plane rides there and back - those were awful)! Here are the pics from that:

3. In June, I met up with some friends that I competed with in gymnastics as a kid for the Olympics trials in San Jose, CA. It was an amazing experience! The gymnastics was phenomenal and my old friends and I picked up right where we left off - we had a blast together. We saw Mary Lou Retton, the Karolyis, and got to witness Nastia Liukin's last routine, not to mention the selection of the men's and women's Olympics teams. It was incredible! Pics here:

4. Headed to Sheridan's 20th high school reunion in San Jose soon and Maui in several weeks. We're super excited about both of those and can't wait to share more details about both. Standby!

So that's it. Hope you're all doing great! Love, Mer xo
