Ahh a day at the pool. It sounds relaxing.... Maybe not. The day started off very well. I made a delicious hashbrown casserole, shoved it in the oven to bake for about an hour and took the older girls for a quick swim. Today it is going to be close to 90 degrees. Even though its quite windy out its still HOT HOT HOT. What better way to spend a saturday. I lounged in the chair and read recipe books as all three girls (and an extra friend because somehow we are just not enough) splashed away. It was peaceful and serene. We walked back home, had our lunch which was done and waiting for us. I figured once the babies woke up from their nap we could all go back and have some more fun. Word to the wise. When you have a wonderful moment. DON'T TRY TO HAVE IT AGAIN. It just won't work. We packed up the babies and met Emma and Hannah by the pool. (they were already there with friends) Noah cried because he can, Molly does not play well with others so when she noticed little kids that did not belong to her family she just sat and stared at them (Im sure she was secretly giving them dirty looks in hopes they would run off in fear...didn't work) and Abby who was so cute... sporting her new ruffly pink GAP bathing suit courtesy of Auntie Megan who loves us so...does not like being wet and sticky. So our nice outing turned into a huge screaming cranky mess. We jumped out of the pool, threw everyone in the stroller and ran home. I think the other pool-goers were very happy. All in all the trip was worth it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this picture of me. I hate all pictures taken of me for typical reasons. My tummy looks big,my hair looks small, blah blah blah but this picture is awesome. I might just blow it up and hang it on my wall. Ahhhhh......
