We knew the heat was coming so I made the wise and exciting purchase of this silly rainbow double kiddie pool with slide (that I daydreamed about all day yesterday). Luckily my tool nut husband had the electric airpump to get that sucker blown up easily. The kids have been having lots of fun but I thought I'd share some golden moments of them fighting at the end of the day :
Henry gets in a good wack.
But don't worry Max got in a few good shots too! They were both crying and screaming hysterically while Nick and I watched as they worked it out.
And here they are back to playing peacefully side by side, their shiny black heads burning in the sun. I didn't fully realize that Legos can float and the potantial for kiddie pool fun that entails.
This is my new friend "The Lounge Chair". I intend to spend a lot of time with him.
I bought two and Max is enjoying lounging with his popsicle. Luckily they clean up easily. (Both chairs and kids.)
Max really got into painting his favorite toy, the blue beatle. Sadly he is lost right now and we cannot find him anywhere.
The rhododendron I planted about 10 years ago i9n front of our house has finally bloomed for the first time ever. It's a boring pale white but I'm still happy to see it. I have done nothing to take care of it so I don't blame it for not blooming sooner.
The wild purple iris' are popping up all over our property now.
