Mother's Day pictures

Usually we go to the beach, but the logistics of that with 3 that don't walk... didn't feel like figuring it out. So instead we went swimming in the pool.  Here are some pictures.

After a little while the babies started getting antsy to get out, so I dried them off and put them in the playpen one by one... By the time all 3 were out of the pool I couldn't help but think of this poem by Shel Silverstein

There's too many kids in this tub.  There's too many faces to scrub.  I just washed a behind that I'm sure wasn't mine.  There's too many kids in this tub.

(Shelley, recognize that dog? LOL)

No worries, after a picture or two Brianna came back out and Emma and Micah did just fine ;)  Then... some popsicles.  We'll call them appetizers to our early dinner!

  1. AHHH....The dog!!!! I'm so glad to know my kids are not the only ones who love that thing!

  2. I love the pics. Looks like they might have needed to hop back in the pool after the popsicles. :)

  3. You need to make cards of those swim pictures! The kids look so cute all floating!

  4. I was just catching up on Shelley's blog and read about "That Dog"! It is also a favorite of my son and a couple other kids we know!! Too funny:) Love the 3 in baby floats:)

  5. It looks like a very fun mother's day!! They are all so precious in their little floats!
