My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Fun Times.....

Brand new swimsuit!

well, sorta. The top is a swimsuit top, but seeing as how she's in 4T clothes the bottoms were regular bikini bottoms....NOT gonna accomodate a swim diaper (NECESSARY!). So the bottoms are from a set of PJs that I bought :-)





the boys are being quiet....ALL of that noise (including the squeal) is from Miss Priss.

oh and she squeals like that ALL THE TIME!!
anyone know a good brand of hearing protection?







after sticking my toe in the pool I decided she was the SMART one! It might have been >85 degrees out, but that water was still COLD!!





blow this picture up and see if you can find all the kids!! it's a funny one.




















Gator-boy is our "all done" gauge...none of the other kids have this problem....and he's also the one who fusses the loudest when we say it's time to quit....go figure.




Seeing as how we've now gotten up to 90 in another week or so the water will be perfect!

Looks like a great investment for hours of fun staying cool...
I'm not looking forward to temps in the 90's!
Looks like you are getting around better...

Every year, on May 1, my dad would get out the "hosepipe" and spray us down in our swimsuits. That was the beginning of summer and the signal we could go barefoot outside until Labor Day. Used to love playing under the sprinklers!

I love your sweet voice and is that a Louisiana or Texas accent? Love it either way!

What sweet memories you captured here! Sugars had a great time watering the rocks. I never tire of watching the little ones play in their own little worlds.

Now, this IS too much fun! One of the best things about summer to a kid. The pool -- and the sandbox, but hopefully not on the same afternoon. And, about the girly-squealing ~ I'd love to know what the gene is that causes that. We swore after four boys that we'd never have/tolerate a squealy girl. And, now, four squealing girls later, we know ther is no prevention and no cure. Alas.

Looks like you had fun. I'm glad you posted the update vids, because in one of the photos, your one son looks like he might be drowning his brother! heehee
