swimmin' it up.

memorial day was fun...

layne preferred to stay in the kiddie pool, while lila preferred the big pool. hmm, we call layne "the sherriff" around these parts, as he prefers to err on the side of safety. whereas lila is super adventurous and enjoys danger as a part of her daily regimen.

please enjoy a picture of me(actually the reflection of me) in my ruffle-ee swimsuit from target. i love seeing old pics of my mom in swimsuits. she has some good 80's ones that make me laugh. i think my kids will like seeing this in the future. really mom, ruffles?

listen kids, mommy wears ruffles to hide bulges. she feels bloated all the time because she's pregnant. only 5 and 1/2 weeks. but still, i feel safe hiding behind all these ruffles.

moving on... when grandpa and grandma are around, it's a free-for-all. hence, a sunscreen festival on grandpa's face.

and i didn't take a picture of my mom coddling both children, giving them absurd amounts of sugaree treats, and checking on them constantly at nap time. she even said, going up and down the stairs is good exercise to defend herself. what?

speaking of grandpa, what is with this outfit? you look like a crazy kidnapper or something. fyi, this outfit would get the cops called at a public pool ASAP.luckily this is your back yard so you make the dress code. but really...

ok so, side note: i usually get super sick from week 6 to 13. if i fall off the blogging planet, it's because i'm laying on the couch. throwing up in a bucket. letting the kids watch PBS.
all. day. long.

    and i love how you so let the "i'm prego" line just slip right in. way to use the ruffles on your suit.

    and the photo of layne shooting with the water gun sooooooo reminds me of caedmon.

  11. Wow! So I guess you ARE going for #3! :) I tell ya, you had me fooled. ;) Oh great, new thought, I wonder if you'll be throwing up the dinner I serve on Friday night... :( Oh and I just saw your due date, too bad its not a little closer to the end of 2010... Jeff practically forced Jettison out of my womb in 2009 for the insurance and tax benefits...men.

  17. Bleh! That was me last summer! PBS was on all. day. long. and my 6 yr old (at the time) fed my 1 yr old breakfast and lunch. It was anything but enjoyable. ...but as they always say, so VERY worth it!

    I hope you're feeling better soon :)
    (Love the suit - hoping my Target has something similar!)
