Setting:

The local watering hole… on a  100 degree day.

Don’t ask me why… but the wording on this sign cracks me up.  every time.

It’s an old quarry… yet the water looks like something out of an island vacation:

A huge wading pool, diving section, waterfalls that the high-schoolers sneak and jump from…

What could be more fun?  (Other than a very pale chick getting ganged up on by a bunch of preschool splashers?)

Then it was Mr. Daddy’s turn.

And boy howdy were the kids glad to see him.

Though he enacted some swift retribution for all the splashing they’d heaped upon poor Rachel:

My turn!  My turn!

(At this point, we break from our regular broadcasting due to an unfortunate loss of clothing for Cutie Left.  Photographs will commence as soon as attire is properly reinstalled)

Much better!

Uh-oh… someone is getting worn out from their day in the sun.

Momma wasn’t complaining at all that her energizer bunny was finally winding down.

That looks like so much fun!

Haven't so much as put a toe in the water this summer (not that there's much water here) - and now the summer's almost over.

Well my weekend was slow, quite and relaxing....yours looks like it was packed full of full. Nice looking family.

So is a looker a really good looking person or someone sightseeing? :D

Sounds and LOOKS like y'all had a good time. Glad the weather cooperated. And so sweet that Itty Bit is still small enough to curl up in your lap and nap.

Looks like a wonderful day! And congrats on making the picture big time! I actually (kind of) know one of the photographers (Dana Suggs). Her husband is a black belt in the same karate program Josiah is in though they are at different dojos.

LOVE it! The photos are fab... you just keep getting better and better. And what a cool place! I do hope you've stocked up on BenGay for dear Mr. D... I imagine he will have some achy muscles come tomorrow. But well worth it, right? Congrats on your Amy and Angie pick for last week's IHF... I'm bettin' you got the photo for this week's theme while you were getting splashed...

I'll confess i haven't been on here in forever and the only thing that got me to come was the Pix of Mr. Daddy (that came up on my home page) minus mustache!! Wow, when did that happen! :) Looks great! You will have to tell me where that watering hole is, it looks cleaner than our drinking water! Looking forward to seeing you guys sometime soon! :)

What a neat place! Mr. Daddy had a great work out! What a sweet picture of your Itty Bit sleeping with his Mommy! Boys love to cuddle so much more than girls.
