Fun in the Sun

Dena had playgroup at her house today and she had it set-up for summer! After enjoying a delicious lunch of chicken salad that Dena made (me) and mac and cheese (Reid - although it is the organic brand so it makes me feel better about him eating that...) we all headed outside where she had 2 inflatable frog pools for the boys to play in. We, of course, tried to get a picture of them all in the pool but you can probably guess that it did not go quite according to plan! At least we tried. Thanks for having us all over!

Porter and Reid giving each other a high five

Attempt at a group pic: (L to R) Reid, Quinn, Hudson, Chapman, Tanner, Porter

All we wanted was a pic of all of them in the pool! Is that too much to ask?? I guess so.

Splash, splash!

Just happy to be walking and exploring

Calling Mimi (SEE SIDENOTE)

SIDENOTE: For the last couple of months whenever I talk to my mom (Mimi) on the phone, she likes to be put on speaker to talk to Reid. Well, now Reid calls phones "Mimi" and the last 2 times we've been in the store and he's gotten antsy and fussy I've given him my phone to play with. But, instead of just being happy with the phone, he proceeds to throw the biggest fit yelling, screaming, and crying and holding the phone out to me to call Mimi. So, I'll call Mimi and she'll talk to him on speaker which buys me some more time because he just sits there and stares at the phone while she talks. So, I hope I'm not teaching him that all he has to do is cry to get what he wants...but I'm not about to leave a cart of groceries! I don't want to have to come back!! BTW - I loved reading all the comments about discipline on the previous post!!

That's so cute about the phone being Mimi...we do the same thing with my mom, and Madeline just stares at the phone (and frequently hangs up on her...whoops!). I love the pool was so much easier to get group shots when they all were tiny :)

Guess a play phone to talk to Mimi is not worth it! What a hoot!

We had such a good time on Monday...can't wait to play again! I love that he listens to Mimi on the phone...too cute! :)

I love the pics. I don't know why it makes me laugh when I see our boys now. They are all so different and SO busy. Our days of trying to have a conversation are OVER! :)

Such a handsome guy! Love the phone story...hey, whatever it takes to get the grocery shopping done. :)

I loved this blog! That is so funny. And I would totally do the same thing because I am not going to the store twice in one week either.
I really enjoyed seeing you this week too. We would love to get together some time.

Mason does the same thing with the phone he associates with Nanny (my mom) and my husband's phone with DD (Marcus' mom) It is so funny :) Reid is so precious...what a fun pool party :)

Hey Meredith,
Just wanted to let you know that I'm not going to be able to make it to that Baylor mommy thing on Friday afterall...I have to take a family member to the doctor and keep her kiddos.
If you go, you'll have to let me know how it goes :o).
