Summer Fun

We have done a lot of "hanging out" this summer. I tried to plan our summer so that our time was divided up - between travel, activity, and nothing...I wanted to have a chance to enjoy the kids but avoid complete boredom! So far, we have gone to Mobile, participated in a week of VBS, and currently this is our second unplanned week...all that to say, mommy was having to get creative to entertain everyone!

Avery got a new slip-n-slide for her birthday so we filled up one morning with that. I will admit that I even suited up to slide!

This is the red-neck version of a water table! I mean, what kid doesn't like to splash and play in water??  This too occupied an entire morning...and an afternoon!

The big kids were playing outside while I cooked dinner one night - and I saw Avery, Griffin, and Cassidy making laps up and down the yard...the kids were chasing her with their water guns!!  I bet it was more exercise than she has had in a long time!

and this is what I am normally doing while I watch the kids play outside...

Next week Avery has dance camp and Griffin has soccer camp - and I am thankful its a "planned" week!
