Photo Story Friday-cooling off


cooling off, originally uploaded by tommiea1.


Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek so sorry Cecily and MamaGeek, I can't add the little header! Why do I have to have computer problems when Husband is sleep?

Back to the picture....this was taken last summer. Will had just gotten this cool water ball from his Aunt M for his birthday. We were on the eighth month of the fifteen month deployment. The weekends seemed to be hardest. The weekdays were filled with the day to day stuff of our routines. But the weekends seemed to drag. We have always gotten pizza on Fridays. We ended up sharing with the neighbors. More often than not, we dragged out Will and Livi's little blow up pool. Even the little seven year old next door would play with them in it. (His mom and dad were the ones that built that backyard nirvana I posted about several times!)

But I look back at this pic and realize that as hard as weekends were, we had fun. Even in the hot hot summer sun of Texas. This blow up pool provided many cooler summer evenings and lots of fun for the kids.

I keep buying The Boy amazing sprinklers and he won't get in them because he doesn't like water on his face. Maybe now that he is starting to swim he will get over that issue.

Love the pic!

That looks like fun to me!

Oh how fun. I love the water shot and of course anything with Livi is pretty much a keeper!

Of course, you had fun! That's the wonder of the Tommie - you make everything wonderful. I hope Action Jackson knows how lucky he is! (and how much a WATCH might show his appreciation)

Madison would love that she doesn't mind water in any shape or form!
