My son came by with his girlfriend Vanessa - and her 2 little girls....................
And he picked up a bunch of " friends " for them for the pool
Some of you saw how much fun I had with them
Crikey the Crocodile
and enough toys to tempt the little ones to go in
Suzan says - C'mon girls - aren't you going to go swimming ?
Leah says - You have to have a little more patience !
Livia says - Giljewopwu aseuropweirj alskd alksdewi !
Suzan says - Pardon ?
Livia's Mom says - She likes to speak in tongues
Suzan says - Ok - let's get your bathing suits on
Leah says - Ok
Livia says - eoriuw fdjr gjiorew aks vksr adkl !
Livia says - Do you know what that means?
Livia says - If I don't have floaties on I'll drown and If I drown then I'll die and if I die then I'll be sad
Livia says - Will you be sad too?
Suzan says - I would cry a lot
Livia says - dkflasi sdfjiwqu fisle tie qdkla !!!
Translation - THAT'S WHY I NEED MY FLOATIES
Leah says - You have to be more patient - I'm just going to sit here for a little while
Livia says - dkfjlak fajfl afjlka dkfjla COLD !
C'mon girls - you can do it !!!
that lasted about 3 minutes - but I have to admit Gordie and Vanessa had a blast
While the little ones cheered them on
Soda even got in the pool ( the right way - not like the accident when we first moved here !!! )
courtesy of Lindsay - ( or Lin-z - the way she spells it - which is NOT the way it appears on her birth certificate !!! )
And just as a side note I have to tell you when my son was at the store picking up all the swimming pool toys he took a double look - as soon as he got to the house he showed it to John - who took a double look and a third look (and maybe you'd have to know me in person to see this - but even I see it - it's a little uncanny actually )
It's almost my double right on the package of the floating mattress - which is what he was picking up for me!
Gordie says - Look Mom - even the same dark roots !!!
Thanks sweetheart :)
When the girls were leaving - Leah said - Hey - how come your picture's on that package???
Well she was far too busy to see the resemblance
Day 2 - and the second batch of swimmers arrived............
Meet Olivia !
And Lucy - ( as in I LOVE Lucy )
and little Aidan - the only boy amongst all of them and who wasn't having any part of this girls fest !
until he spotted the boat
Soda spotted the other one - I could die !!! ( she did this on her own lmho )
After 5 months of renovation hell on earth we have a lot of catching up this summer ( before reno's begin again in the Fall )
Oh and between all that?
I FINISHED the guest room -
John says - Can't that wait for a rainy day or something- summer's here - you don't want to spend it painting and scraping do you ?
Suzan says - fdjluiw vjhle akslwi skfjo
SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT !!!
We're babysitting 3 of those munchkins today - any guesses where most of it will be spent?
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend !
Much love - and big fat WET chlorine smelling hugs!
