janey had a handful of candy all picked out (just the right blend she said) waiting in her hand for like 4 blocks. it was a special handful just for her sisters. we walked past lots of "hungry-candy-wanting-kids" but she kept that special handful ready till she saw these two.
after the parade, we raced to a soccer double header and then i snuck away early with aubrey to get my hair done. (yes...those hideous greys pictured above were washed away!!) she was so cute waiting in the salon for daddy to pick her up. she had her baby in her lap and her blankie on her shoulder. she was so good.
we had a fancy smoked pork dinner and then played outside for a bit. the days of popsicles on the tramp are shortening i think. we had a few "chilly-ish" mornings and i have a feeling fall is knocking.
sunday morning was kind of lazy in comparison. it felt good. dave made this. it was warm, gooey and delicious. perfect for a sunday morning. we had been promising the girls we would take them to the pool all summer. we finally delivered. they were overcome with pure joy!!:)
we have to divide and conquer when we head to the pool. dave takes the big girls because basically i'm not really a water person. love the beauty of it and all. love sitting near it. but actually getting wet is not one of my favoirtes. weird i know. especially for a fl girl i guess. we had a pool in our first house that was so beautiful. dave jokes all the time that i was probably only in it like 10 times!
anyway.....i spent the day following this little cutie around.
to say she loved it was an understatement. just look at that face!!!
she splashed, ran in and out of the water over and over, said "tum on mommy" as she grabbed my hand, slid down the slide countless times and had a wonderful day.
taking pictures of a toddler at the pool is hard stuff. can't leave them to go grab your camera. and once you get it...who wants to bring it around all that splashing and squirting. but i did manage to capture this one while enjoying a shady snuggle with my baby. ahhhhhh....sweet bliss....
meanwhile....on the other side of the pool...the big girls were walking up and sliding down more times then they could count.
practicing swimming and enjoying their daddy.
a family picture would have been great. this is about as close as we got.
wish i could have bottled up a bit of this day. it was filled with more laughter and smiles then chores and to-do lists. we all can't wait to go back again.
hope your weekend was perfect too,
have a happy day,
