happiness is....

just ask elizabeth, miranda, and kate and they'll tell you that happiness is an inflatable pool, a sprinkler, and a slide. ahh...the delights of childhood. but really, i had just as much fun savoring the outdoor fun this morning as they did! wanna peek into the fun?! (i just knew you'd say here you go!) (mind you...this is our pool from last year...and apparently the top ring has a hole in it...but that didn't spoil the fun one bit. in fact, the girls didn't even realize the pool was slightly more shallow and "floppy" than it should be! hopefully later this week we'll be busting out the new pool--and that one is big enough that perhaps i'll be able to hop in and cool off as well!)

splish my opinion the water was frigid...but these two silly girls didn't mind one bit. if you zoom in you can tell they are giggling their little heads off as they splash one another!

elizabeth couldn't wait until kate woke up from her morning nap and joined in the swimming fun

one happy girl! she wasn't the least bit bothered by the cold water fact, i think she would have stayed out in the pool ALL day!
miranda and elizabeth were thrilled to help kate hone her splashing skills. i think kate was simply thrilled that they were doing the same thing she was!
HOORAY for water!

miranda was first to "brave" a run through the chilly sprinkler

and elizabeth quickly (though a wee bit timidly) followed! oh how i wish i could bottle their laughter...or at least videotape it...

libs was quite excited by the extra speed on the slide with her wet buns

...and we finally dragged the little slide over to the pool...and, of course, the girls thought this was unbelievably exciting!
just had to share a pic of the oh-so-curly hair...the warmer and more humid it gets the more these sweet curl spring into action! i couldn't get a good back view, but it is just ringlet curls!
look what miss kate can do...yep...pull up all by herself...and if you look closely you can see that she isn't actually holding on at this particular moment....she's a brave one!
this face spells the cutest way possible, of course!

I'm gonna post the Dr. Pepper sweeps - I won a free movie ticket today! Still confused as to why the dates are wrong in the rules -but the code I won is good until Oct. 31 - so I think this sweeps is still going strong!

Lilla is such a waterbug, and it is nothing but fun! We have a blast! It took her a minute in the ocean but she loved it and did not want to leave those waves when we said good-bye to it. You gotta love childhood!

The pictures of the girls in the pool made me want to jump in. It looked cool and refreshing. Elijah is in love with being in water. We signed him up for swimming lessons last night and his first class is tomorrow. I am super excited for him. I hope to be able to take pictures.
