Summer + Family

Summer is here! 

To give this blog a little lovin' and also some delicious eye-candy, we wanted to post the latest cover of LOCAL houston magazine which features one of the hottest moms we know! Lesli Pendergraft is not only a beautiful model & mother of four, she is also carefree, cool, and super funny. A rather HOT combination if you ask us! So here is to you Lesli P, our girl crush forever, you make our blog and LOCAL magazine look DAMN good! 

You can check out the issue HERE

Both Lesli and the owner's of Local houston magazine are family friends and you know how the Salinas' roll...

...we keep it all in the family! Even if you're not family, we treat you like family. Sometimes that's a good thing and sometimes it's a bad thing (like when we invite a newbie over for a 'small' gathering and there's 40 screaming people that they've never met before). It's hectic and at times overwhelming, but we like it that way because eventually everyone feels right at home. 

I think that's one reason summer is so special to us. While we were growing up, our parents did an amazing job at keeping us busy all summer long and they surrounded us with positive people who are still our friends to this day.  From two-a-day swim practices, to cheerleading, dance, and swim camps to family road trips to Utah to visit our grandparents, summer was a truly special time of the year for the Salinas family.

To us, summer means family. Whether we're spending a day at the beach or sitting in the backyard with our feet in the kiddie pool while drinking hot beer and waving off pissed-off, mosquito-bitten toddlers ...we still keep the summer family tradition alive.
