Water Babies!

There is something blissfully simple and yet profoundly memorable about summer days spent around a backyard wading pool. I remember running down our backyard hill with reckless abandon to jump into the small pool, swimming on our stomachs in circles for what must have been hours, giggling til our cheeks hurt. I've heard it said that having children is like reliving your childhood, and I am finding that to be true in so many ways. A picture is worth a thousand words, so here are a few thousand!

Oh so serious!
Now he gets the idea
And now that there's a ball involved, yes please!

Check out the cool water I captured near Emma's leg. Have I said anything lately about how much I love my camera?!






Does this picture not say mischief?!! Just look at her expression!
Nothing like swimming to get those tummy's growling. And lunch outside makes clean-up a snap!

Sarah, these are precious water pics! Looks like everyone is having a blast!!! We "do lunch" outside a bunch during the summer months too. Want to come over for pb&j, grapes, and lemonade? =)

And, did you get my email a while back?
