Invite some friends over for a cookout
Abby, Noah, Hannah Becca, Aaron
Wait in line
I loved how they formed the line without any grown up prompting
Throw all danger signs out the window and put the Little Tikes slide into the pool
Five kids in a pool; kind of like "Three Men In A Tub"
Discover that you can make hand prints...
and footprints on the side of the house.
Stop for a bite to eat
We discovered that if you pour WAY TOO MUCH Mrs. Dash on chicken before grilling it, Noah WILL actually eat it. No one else will, however.
Now, take a look at the pool and how disgusting the water is and decide to dump the water. However, it may be more fun for the kids to bail out the water into the grass. So give all the kids a bucket and send them to their task.
Aaron then decides that it is more fun to pour the water over his head, rather than on the grass.
Of course, Noah decides to turn it into throwing water at others.
Amidst the fun, Daddy will decide that he must also get into the action. So Daddy grabs a bucket and soaks any kids he can find...
I love these shots of water in mid air
and the kids get him back.
Trouble begins brewing when Aaron decides to go after the photographer.
After most of the water is drained, Daddy needs to spray off the neighbors driveway which was more fun to pour water on than the grass. However, then the sprayer get nasty and once again unleashes his wrath on any child running nearby.
What a fun afternoon in the backyard.
P.S. I am quite certain there will be a very similar story on Deb's site in the days to come. We were both shooting pictures like Mad Women.
