Wordless Wednesday

Or "Few Words Wednesday"? Whatever.

Kite flying with Daddy!

And to end the day, sprinklers and bread pudding!

Water Fun with Friends

Our friends Misty, Haydon, & Payton, hosted a play date for the kids to play in the water for the first time this year!

This is a make-up post. My friend, Tiffany from The Harris Life, has been patiently waiting for this post so she can steal these pictures. So here you go, Tiff! Sorry about the thousand pictures, I could NOT narrow it down to just a few!

Haydon, Emma, Payton, & Eli

Run, run, run!

Emma had to pose in her first bikini.

Tiffany slathering Ryder down with SPF.

Ryder was NOT so happy about it.

Payton had to pose for me, too!

Rory getting ready to take off!

I just love this picture. Look at Payton & Eli hiding under the frisbee toy!

Ryder is SO stinkin' cute!

Love how excited Rory got about filling up the baby pool!

Love Haydon's face when Eli sprayed him!

All the big(ger) kids had to get into the baby pool first!

Rory grabbed the frisbee toy.

Eli was NOT happy about it.

Tug o' war!

Rory may be little but she is strong! AND determined!

Paytie took another break to model for me!

Ryder finally got a turn in the baby pool. Not happy! Poor baby wasn't enjoying this play date!

Isaak liked it though!

The big(ger) kids had to get back in, too!

A little jumping break.

Whose kid is this, and when did she start liking the sprinkler?


Another sopping kid. It is NOT easy to slow Rory down for a smiley picture. But isn't it worth, it?!?
Fun, fun day! Thanks for having us over, Misty!

Clinton was determined for Em to catch a fish today! And she did!!

Em and Daddy
Em and Papaw

Emma's first fish!

She caught the biggest fish of the day!

She kept saying "Here fishy, fishy. Swim to Papaw." We were totally cracking up! But it worked, Papaw out-fished us all, caught the most. BUT Em caught the second most. She caught about 6, reeled in 2 by herself! She was really excited!

Em's First T-Ball Game!!

After only one practice (yikes!), the Dragons took to the field to take one the Blue Jays!

Ready to go!

Coach Daddy & Emma
Since this is a learning league, the bases have squeakers in them. Yes, squeakers!! Every time a kid got on base, they jumped up and down, up and down, squeak, squeak, squeak... ARGH!

Of course, Emma was all over that!
Then it was game time! 

Em played "out" field!
It was so funny! Every time the ball went past Em, she would stop at the edge of the dirt. She did not want to run into the grass for the ball! But if someone else got it, she'd cry "I was going to get that ball!" and bury her head in her daddy's leg!

Then the Dragon's were up to bat!

Colt's first at bat! Coach (Daddy) pitch!

Emma's turn! She was not interested in trying the coach pitch!

Running to first! (After a brief detour!)
Then it was over...

Good game, good game, good game...

good game, good game, good game...

One last huddle... GOOOO DRAGONS!
The whole thing was so darn cute! I can't wait for next week's game!
