Sprinkler time

Last week, our children were SO excited to play in the sprinkler for the first time this season! We went under the house and pulled out our sprinkler, beach chairs, sand toys, and beach balls to prepare for the upcoming hot summer days. Time has been passing by so quickly!  It's hard to believe that a year ago, I was pregnant with JJ and we were wondering what life would be like as a family of five; we couldn't have ever imagined just how wonderful it would be! And I can't believe we'll be celebrating his first birthday next month! (*gulp...I'm not ready for that! wink) God has certainly blessed our family abundantly! Here are a few pictures from our sprinkler fun:
The children let me take a quick picture before we headed outside!
The girls were investigating a bug on the slide. (I am trying to practice being brave and train myself to say, "How interesting!" instead of  "Eeeeww!!!" because I know that JJ will most likely love bugs and other creepy things. ha ha!) 
Sweet sisters and the best of friends!
Snack break...

JJ loves playing in water and he thought the sprinkler was an a.m.a.z.i.n.g contraption! wink.
Bella took these pictures while we were coloring with chalk. We have so much fun together!

"When times are good, be happy;but when times are bad consider: God has made the one as well as the other. Therefore, a man cannot discover anything about his future."- Ecclesiastes 7:14


  1. We love sidewalk chalk and sprinklers too! you are a great mommy enjoying such fun playful times with your kids!

  2. Landon screams like a little girl the same way his mama does when he sees a bug -- maybe the good Lord will see fit to give you the same kind of boy. ;) Landon will also stomp on them for me which is a big blessing haha. :)
