Weekend of Water & Bubbles

To start off this post, I have to share with you the ice cream cake we made for Nick's birthday, which was on the 1st...  BUT, since he was working late the 1st, and 2nd, we couldn't celebrate until Friday night.. the 3rd! 

The kids helped me make an ice cream cake, per special request from Daddy....

Addison wanted to help write on his cake, so picture us both grabbing onto the icing bag, and fighting over where the writing should go...

 Take two.... as serious as these two crazies can be for a photo...

Trevor was so upset that we couldn't celebrate Daddy's birthday on his ACTUAL birthday, but when it came time to cut into the cake, all the disappointment was gone.  And everyone was happy!

This weekend we had Trevor's last soccer game, and then we headed home to fill up our kiddie pool! But that soon got replaced by a water shooter fight between Mommy, and Trevor & Addison.

Now, before you start judging me in the picture... you need to know that I was soaked to the bone, no thanks to Trevor and Addison's strategic moves of ganging up on me, and drenching me.... there was always one chasing me with a water shooter, and one at the pool with their weapon filled and ready to nail me as I tried to refill my own shooter...  So opportunities like the ones above needed to be taken whenever possible.
Don't Judge!

Sunday morning was a cloudy and warm day, so we brought out our bubble machine and filled the neighborhood with bubbles!

 I love this picture! I think he was taking a big breath in to blow some bubbles off his bouncy ball!

Don't you love her outfit choice for the day?

At this point, they were standing in front of the bubble machine with their mouths wide open trying to catch a bubble in their mouth.... bluck!!!

  Who knew a $10 bubble machine from Target could be so much fun!?

That looks like so much fun!!! We want to come and play at your house......

By the way....anyone with kids knows you have to get your 'free shots' in when you get the chance :o)

My oldest daughter wanted one of those 'guns' at the dollar store the other day. We might have to go back and get some!
