It has been hot out lately so we have been spending lots of time playing in water. On Wednesday, we went to the zoo with some friends to play in the splash pad area there. Here is Ellie and our friend Annie by one of the spouts.
The hot weather has not been very good to the flowers... well, my flowers anyway, so this photo is from May; irises in my in-laws' backyard.
More water, keeping my little guy cool and "fresh." This photo was also taken on Monday, his birthday so he is a "fresh" two-year-old... you can take that however you would like. :)
We spent last Sunday at my sister and brother-in-law's house and their neighbor brought over a horse for the kids (and anyone else who wanted to) to ride. My mom was the eighth (and last) rider.
This is another shot from last Sunday, my oldest and her second cousin playing together. With 5 little kids around, the day wasn't always very calm, but I thought these two playing together in the dirt quietly seemed pretty calm.
