Beat the Heat

Ah, those summer days. The only thing to worry about is how to stay cool. Here's how we've been managing:

Water Fights with the Young Women in our ward. As you can see, Abbey was having a great time with the water balloons. That is until she got caught in the cross fire of the water battle. And she let it be known she was not amused.
But all is forgiven and forgotten when the popsicles arrive.


Then it was off to the beach.
I wish! Nope, off to the man-made beach at the Children's Museum. Almost as good. Some world champion sand sculpture artist made this incredible sand castle:
All they had was a few measly ropes and two measly teenage workers guarding the thing. Needless to say, I kept my toddler within grabbing distance at all times.

Mr. Jakey learned a tough lesson with a handful of sand.

Ahh...lazy summer days.

I'm so glad I'm the only one who knows what you're talking about! It scarred me :) And Justin went in and changed my sidebar one day, so I just left it. Except, I changed my loves back. He'd put the most random, embarassing stuff for me!

I love all the pictures but the last picture...especially. I love how all the kids are walking together and holding hands.

Ashley seriously. Can you give me some tips on cute pictures. I don't think I have found one non cute picture on this site. I think this calls for more site seeing. Thanks so much. I love it.

Ashley, how do you get those awsome kandid shots with you and the girls? Does someone take them for you? Or do you set up a timer and just set it up yourself? They are always so pretty, oh and how do you make those cute borders around the pictures with their names and stuff on them? I'm such a scrapbooking retard. Please teach me master.
