Family Fun

My children have been getting along surprisingly well so far this summer. And they are trying new things. I love these moments that I captured.

Spenser and Mason watching the big boys in the pool and on the trampoline.Spenser feeding Carter her sno-ball. (And if you look closely near his elbow, you will see that she spilled some on his swim trunks. I think that's why he looks so afraid of her.)

My way of keeping Sawyer occupied for a few minutes while taking pictures of the other children. (Don't worry, my wallet doesn't have any coins that he could choke on.)

A trip to the pool with a friend. It took almost all day before Spenser was brave enough to go into the water. She liked hanging out on the side of the pool filling the watering cans and buckets. Once she was in, I couldn't keep her out. Unless I was taking her to the bathroom for the millionth time.
Jack caught mid-air ... This year is a first for him.

Thunder and rain ended our pool day a little too soon. On our way home, we got stuck by the train on Main Street. We never seem to mind waiting for the train to pass (unless someone has to go to the bathroom).

And look at these adorable tank onesies I found at Walmart (3-pack for about $6). Won't they look so cute appliqued? If you are interested in them, you better go quickly. I only found one package of boys 12-months (they were out of 18-months) and I was told they only get one shipment per summer. When they're gone, they're gone until next summer.

(P.S. They also have girly ones. They aren't with the regular onesies, they were on a free-standing display kind of thing.)

You have a beautiful family!

I browsed your blog for a while this morning and you've got some really fun sewing projects and great ideas to keep the kids busy during the summer. I may have to steal some of your ideas!!

We have the same little pool in our backyard! We love it, although it is waaay too easy to make fun of (poor guy) and I refer to it as "a kiddie pool on steriods". Hali and I (and Jeremy sometimes) have a LOT of fun in it though!
