Child's Play

So what have I been doing during my absence? Putting my kids to work, of course.

What mother doesn't dream about her children fanning her with palm fronds? What? Not buying it? I didn't think so. This was the end of our excursion to Crate and Barrel Monday afternoon.

The first part involved my children rolling around on rugs in the displays.

What can I say? They don't get out much.

But they got outside on Sunday.

I was busy rearranging my patio and hosing it off when my children commandeered the hose. What else could I do but sit on my boo-tay and watch. You can thank (or curse, you be the judge) Cody for prompting me to grab my camera.

No, I didn't acquire any children. Some of the neighbor kids decided to join in the fun.

Who needs toys when you have an empty apple juice jug and some water?

Emma's in her own world.

Oops.

Fill it up again.

Why aren't our jugs getting full?

Nothing phases this girl, not even a hose being sprayed at her.

Sometimes you have to take matters into your own hands.

How does the water keep getting out?

** This isn't my usual chatty post, but I'm working my way there. Bear with me.

Absolutely adorable! It never ceases to amaze me that with a house full of toys, my kids choose an envelope and paper bag to play with (for the entire day). I see my house isn't the only place where that happens. LOL!

Stopping in from SITS to say hi!

You're kids are so cute - they look like they're having so much fun! Nothing beat playing in the back yard with a hose. Or very little, at least.

Good to have you back. We love to see pics and read your stories, especially of Emma.

Yay, Denise is alive and well! Sitting in her patio chair watching the kids soak themselves with water. Who cares! Life is good.

And life is good. I promise you....

Oh I just drove up to the Stanley. Did you stay there Denise? I have always wanted to stay there. I told the girls it was haunted. They DON'T want to stay there!
