The other night our good friends invited us over for some summertime heaven. The kids did a super quick change into their swimsuits (far faster than changing in the mornings) and were ready to rock and roll.
I was soaked from kneeling at the end of the Slip and Slide, but the view was amazing! Just love that tongue hanging out.
This was Ruby's first time on one and she could not quite get the hang of running and sliding, so Ben just tossed her down.
Even my baby was giving it a shot and giggling and giggling.
Love that two-year-old belly. Why is it so cute when a big, chubby belly on me isn't nearly as nice?
Now Malakai certainly has a belly too but isn't quite big enough to slip and slide so his dad gave him a bit of a workout.
Isn't hearing a baby laugh just the best sound?
Then it was time for a little grub...some heavenly salmon, melon, cornbread for the bigger people and some mashed up turkey dinner for the little guy.
However, his big brother took pity on him and fed him some s'mores which was gratefully received.
Here is the master, carefully evaluating states of roastiness.
And a sweet Kiana dives in enthusiastically.
And then there was Sahale, the perfect dog, who abides my boys' "love" immeasurably. Now I am not dog whisperer...but I got this shot but holding my own s'more over my head.
What are your favorite things to do in the summer?
