Summer Fever.....

I have been really terrible about posting lately. We have been trying to get our kitchen done & I have just been getting through this whole sickness thing & have completely forgotten to post our fun water pictures. The girls have been dieing for summer to get here so that they could go swimming & play in the sprinklers. So when the temperature hit 100 degrees on Tuesday the 22nd of April we broke out the sprinkler. Mind you this is at 6:30 p.m. when we finally got around to getting out. But the girls had so much fun. Sadie sat in her chair on the porch & watched the girls run through the sprinkler with Zeppelin. He thought it was the best thing EVER!!! I laughed so hard watching them dance & scream through the water.
Kelsey was dancing & singing in the water like she was the little Mermaid. So CUTE!!

Sadie sitting on the porch being an ANGEL!!
They played so hard in the water that by the time bed time came they were all pooped!! Here is Kelsey laying in bed with Sadie. She was being so cute & loving to her baby sis.


Lindsey SUPER CHEESER!!! She was being so good staying in her bed while I read them books after saying prayers.
They had so much fun in the sprinklers the night before that when we picked up my cousin Lacey Slade(Marci Slade, my dad's youngest sister's youngest daughter.), who is only a few months older than Kelsey, the girls had to show off their water works. I love that such a simple $2 sprinkler can bring so much joy for HOURS!!
Once again Sadie stayed on the porch in her rocker & watched the girls run crazy through the water. What an angel!!!
I love this dress. I bought it at Wal-Mart for like $2. What a steal!! I love polka dots!! She is too stinkin' cute!!
I think that Zeppelin enjoys the sprinkle as much as the girls if not more.

Lindsey & Zeppelin.
Kelsey & Lacey Slade. I think Kelsey is dancing again. It is hard to tell. She is so funny!!All 3 girls posing for a cute picture while standing in the middle of the sprinkler.

Sadie our thumb sucker!! I try to take it away & she freaks. What can ya do?
Every Thursday we have been going to 'Pizza' with my aunt Marci. It is so fun because we meet with her sister-in-law Darlene & some gals from her ward at Peter Piper Pizza. It is so fun cause my kids are all free so I only have to pay for me & there are so many kids there that my girls just run like crazy & have so much fun. Not to mention I don't have to cook or clean up!! SUPER BONUS!! I love it. Here is Kelsey getting ready to leave. She misses her hair so I tried to make her feel better my doing her hair extra cute with a big flower. Poor kid feels terrible about cutting her hair. She really thought that it would just come back the next morning.
CHEESE!!! I love Kelsey's smile when she pulls the SUPER CHEESER!!!
"PIZZA!!!!" Lindsey was excited to leave!!

The next day (Friday, April 24th) we had Lacey over again while Marci & Grandma Russell went out for their birthdays. Lacey is such a fun girl. I really enjoy having her over. Kelsey LOVES her!!! Here they are feeding Sadie her bottle for me!! What good little helpers.
Lacey Slade & Sadie.
This was TOO FUNNY!!! I came out of the bathroom to find Lindsey with her swim suit on her head!! Laughing so hard at herself!! She had gotten a glimpse of herself in the mirror & thought that it was too funny!! I love this kiddo!!!

Then she got embarrassed so she hurried up & took it off.
Monday, April 27th the girls had to do the sprinkler thing again even though we had a really cool day. It only got into the 80's. But my girls insisted that it was warm enough. They lasted a whole 5 min. before freezing & running in the house wanting a towel. Since they were already wet & about to get in the bath we ate Popsicles in the back yard for a bit. They are going to have so much fun this summer. It is only April & they both already have perma swim suits tanned into their little bodies. Sun screen already fully in stock in our house!! WE love it!! BRING IT ON!!! :) The summer that is but leave to 110 degree weather behind. I WISH!!!!! The biggest reason why we hate living here is the HEAT!! I guess it does come in handy when your kids wanna run through the sprinklers in April though!! :)
