Summertime phone dump

Before I bombard you with beach pictures :)

Lunch at the pool
Hampton is really into making lines.
Sno Cones.  I sure did miss these while we were in Knoxville.  Who knew snow cone stands weren't a given wherever you live?!
My super heroes (or is it heros?)
Hampton is also in to dressing himself----most of the time he has to wear his "ball game" shirt and they other days he likes to "match!"
Morning time snuggles
Piggy tail love 
AL got ants in her pants at the park a couple days before we left for the beach :( Shockingly, she has not acted like they bother her one bit since it happened.  Girlfriend is tough!!
Not sure if I've mentioned it or not...but I'm going to be an aunt to twins, coming at the end of this year. We went to Mark and Cassey's reveal shower in Indianola to find out two more precious GIRLS were joining the family.  Times sure are changing in the Hardin family....the girls are taking over ;)

Brent got Hampton his first baseball glove.  Hampton's enthusiasm did not disappoint.  He loves it!

The 4th (Grove pics)

We had so much fun celebrating last weekend with the Neely's!  It's been way too long since we have all gotten together.  Maggie, Laura and I  were roommates in college.  So sad we didn't get a group shot.  Oh well, something is better than nothing.  Enjoy the pictures!

Hardin Garden Tomatoes (BLT Dip recipe)

My tomato plants are rocking it!  I planted two varieties....the one producing the biggest and prettiest tomatoes is the Big Beef plant.  I can't remember what the other one was, but I think it was a Bad Boy?  Something is wrong with my cucumber plants.  They are producing some "normal" cucumbers---but most are really yellow and are an odd shape.  They still taste good but I don't think I will be sharing those :-)  The zucchini plant has given us three perfect zucchinis so far.

(You don't need exact measurements--these are approx.  you can adjust the ratios to your taste)
3/4 cup mayonnaise 
3/4 cup sour cream
1-2 chopped tomatoes
bag or Real Bacon Bits
salt/pepper to taste
Mix all together.  I like to stick it back in the fridge for at least 30min and allow the flavors to marry.  Serve with chips, Frito's, or serve on a baguette and add a little lettuce leaf and/or a chopped cherry tomato to make it fancy!

Hope everyone has a Happy and Safe July 4th!!
