Pools, gardens and sleepovers!!!

The last couple days have been busy but I guess they always are and how can they not be when we have 8 kids between the 3 of us :)

We hit the pool yesterday and the kids had a blast.  Well, until Jett swallowed a bunch of water and threw up in the pool.  The lifeguards blew their whistles and the pool had to be emptied until they cleaned it.  Not embarrassing at all.

Me and the kids had a slumber party at the Stockham's house.  I mean EVERYONE!  Amelia slept with Georgia, Jbird with Cece and Teddy, Mabel on her own in the guest room and mommy and Auntie Courtney (Dave was out of town).  She kicks a lot.  All was good until Cece creeped bedside and scared me and then crawled into bed with us.  Huh?  This momma doesn't do well with that but I fell back asleep until Jbird called at 5:45 "where is cece?" He loves her.  I slept with him on the floor and loved every minute of it.  He cuddled with me and put his arm over me.  Ugh, loved it.

Today we took the kids to Red Butte Gardens and walked all over the place to see flowers, waterfalls, fountains, play areas, etc.  I think they had fun.  We walked a lot but these two were behind most of the way.  Remember, slow and steady wins the race!

We came home and spent the afternoon with slip n slides, pools and popsicles.  Oh yeah, I chased the kids around with a bazooka water gun!

Cornered with the water gun!

More victims of the water gun!  Amelia was not happy!

Ice Cream truck delivery :)  Can you deal with the size of this popsicle?

What a great post! I love the look on Amelia's face! Jeremy looks like he's having a blast. The pool story made me laugh out loud. Can't wait to see you guys next week!

The puking in the pool story just happened to a good friend of mine with her 2-yr-old at a hotel! Not fun, but common it seems...
