moving in to our house brought many memories. the least fun of those? our septic tank stopping up. poor pops spent about 7 hours in our garage "cleaning" it out. thank goodness for pops!!!! he cut away a 3 foot section of the pipes, cleaned it with his super-duper vacuum cleaner, and installed new piping. by the end of the day it was all clean and the smell was just about gone. disgusting!
I stumbled across a new blog that I love. The CSI project: create, show, inspire. Every week they have a challenge. This week's challenge is sewing/fabric. So I dressed the kids up in their Auburn and Alabama outfits and took a picture. I've never linked to another blog, but I'm doing it this week.
My boys are dressed in Auburn shorts while my little girl is sporting an Alabama romper in red with white elephants. I made these outfits for a big family reunion in Louisiana where there were a LOT of LSU fans. All in fun...
This weekend we went to the Rocket City Beach Bash in downtown Huntsville. They brought in 400 tons of sand and placed it on 200 yards of the city street. There were games, inflatables, slip-n-slides, and of course the splash pad. That's where we spent most of our time.
The next three pictures show the kids during the first five minutes. Laney wasn't happy at first, but starting having fun soon after I took this picture. Sam was trying to decide if he wanted to get wet. He played a little better than in the past, now that he has his super cool Speedo. And Luke had fun as always. His favorite part was "sitting" on the water as it shot up.
