Fun in the Sun

Summer is finally here! The kids are so happy that with the hot weather comes the opportunity to swim, eat ice cream, and play in the water.
We go to Grammie and Grampa's house just about every week for Sunday dinner. It is one of my favorite times of the week when I can get together with my parents and share the adventures of the week. It warms my heart to see how much they love their grandchildren and it is special to me that my children will have so many great memories of their grandparents. The kids each love their Grammie and Grampa, in fact when we pulled in the driveway last Sunday Cooper yelled out "Grammie" and started clapping. Too cute...
Last Sunday Grammie and Grampa had been shopping, again. Emma Jo loves to swim in the big pool, but the little kids usually don't go in, so they had gotten a red-white-and-blue blow-up swimming pool for Cooper and an Ariel sprinkler for Grace.
First we coated each of the kids in sunscreen.
Then we let Cooper get in the pool.
Cooper watched Gracie playing in the sprinkler.
Cooper had never played in a sprinkler before and wanted to check it out for himself.
Emma Jo saw the little kids having so much fun she decided to come over and join in with them.

After all the water play, Cooper was hungry and devoured the guacamole. Too bad he doesn't actually eat the chips, just uses them for dippers to get the guacamole. As soon as they get soggy he throws them back in the basket and chooses a new chip.
