Chloe gives me this irrisistable smile just as she jumps in the inflatable waterslide pool
I hope this is the last time I write this, at least for this year. IT WAS HOT!!!
We had a nice weekend at home. Saturday was filled with running errands and shopping. Dad took Pearl to see that meatball movie. Chloe didn't want to go (huh?), so she stayed home with me.
The weather was hot Saturday, but Sunday really topped our
There was an inflatable waterslide pool and the kids just loved it. There was also a real fire engine with horns and sirens and a 100' ladder. For some reason, the boys seemed to enjoy this feature a little more than the girls. I blame the heat.
If it weren't for my addiction to photography, I might have considered this day a drudge rather than a positive. I had so much fun taking pictures and the birthday boy was so darn photogenic, it was hard to leave. But then, we had to head out a bit early to whisk the girls off to Chinese school. What did we do before kids?
Actually, I think it was a pretty good weekend. Now let's do something about the weather!
Cousin Quinny gives Nathan a big birthday hug!
Quinny enjoys a swim in the pool! At least somebody's keeping cool today.
This picture cracks me up. The girls were asked to leave the pool so they could await the arrival of the fire engine. I think the boys were a little more excited about this prospect.
It's here! Doesn't Addison have cool shades?
Nathan looks on with wonder as the giant ladder truck backs up into his driveway.
Nathan gets to try on the firefighter gear. Doesn't he look handsome?
Nathan and the other boys climb up into the cab. They repeatedly play with the horns and sirens and use the bullhorn to assault cars driving by, telling them to slow down.
Cousin Miranda tries on the gear as well.
Looks like somebody left something behind.
Nathan's mom climbs the ladder on the fire engine.
Even Nathan's baby sister Morgan enjoys the activity.
Happy third birthday Nathan!!
