    Busy Mornings and Pool time.

    Monday, July 31st, 2017

    I took the kids to our church’s campmeeting for the morning services last week.

    Which meant our afternoon’s were filled with getting school done(we are doing year round school).

    We listened to a lot of audio books going to and from the morning meeting.

    Thursday we ended up staying home and some of the kids played in the kiddie pool in the afternoon.

    We have a LOT of cicadas right now.

    It was a busy week but the kids had service also.

    The kids enjoyed their service and I got a break almost everyday last week for an hour or so(which has never happened).

    Win win for everyone.

    playground

    I had been to this riverside park a while ago but did not get to spend much time checking it out.

    We went back last month.

    climb

    It is a pretty park with some nice playground equipment but I felt like my boys were a little old for the park.

    The water features especially seemed geared more for little ones.

    It worked out okay since not many of the kids wanted to play in the water that day but the boys would have been really bored if they were not allowed to splash due to small kids.

    crawl

    kick

    I allowed it as long as no other kids were nearby.

    Their vivid imaginations came in handy as well.

    They pretended to be alligators for a long time and that made it a fun place for them.

    This would not have worked again if their were many kids around since they were taking up a whole water feature.

    sleep

    They enjoyed it since it was something new and different but I am not sure we will make this a regular stop.

    If you have little ones that do not really like the big splashpads with lots of water going everywhere than I think this would be a great place for you to bring them!

    I have read that the water stays on until October 1st, does anyone know if that is true?

    All the other splashpads turn off after Labor Day.

    This post makes me miss the carefree days of summer.

    We are on our third week of school and still feeling the adjustment.

    Only 170 more school days until summer…

    Water Balloon Fight! ~Day 6

    Friday, September 5th, 2014

    My in-laws left my nephews with me while they went out to dinner with some other family that lives in the area.

    I knew if I was going to have all four boys I wanted to give them an outlet for all of their energy!

    fight

    Water balloons are amazing.

    When they are made by someone else…

    splash

    None of the boys could tie them so I had to tie them all.

    waterdrops

    My fingers hurt so we did them in two batches.

    smash

    They did not seem to mind.

    laugh2

    laugh

    Personalities come out in a battle like this.

    gethim

    My youngest nephew preferred to run away the whole time, even if it meant he got less balloons.

    I am with him, I run also.

    held

    My youngest tried to make it easier for him by holding his brother down.

    balloon

    I love this kid.

    closed

    The other boys were just as happy to be hit by a balloon as to throw one.

    aim

    Guess who ended up with the last balloon?

    fire

    splash3

    He was pretty happy.

    laugh3

    I wanted to stay outside longer but since it was so hot out we had to play in water.

    fun

    This one wanted to know why I take pictures all the time.

    him

    I do it so much that I forget that it seems odd to some people.

    rope

    You know that crazy Aunt that people talk about that will not stop taking pictures at holidays and gatherings?

    I have become her…

    pickup

    I am okay with that though.

    rope

    I treasure these images.

    I think I will continue on with being the “crazy Aunt”.

    It makes me happy.
