Popsicles (a.k.a. "Memorial Day Delayed")

It's been so long since the sun has come out, that I forgot I had these pictures to post. For those of you unaware of the weather in the's been rainy. VERY RAINY. I heard somewhere that it hasn't rained in Seattle for 28 days. Know why? Cuz the rain's moved HERE. Seriously, it's a little ridiculous. If it's not currently raining, it'll rain in the next 3-4 hours. Not that I'm bitter, but last time I checked, it's June...not April...and I have 5 kids home all day, every day, now that school's out. I NEED THE SUN!

Okay, enough of my ranting...back to the pictures. These were taken back on Memorial Day weekend. (I think that may have been the last time the weather was nice.) We were at Nana & PopPop Higby's for a laid-back BBQ. And Nana had popsicles on hand. They were the triplet's first. And man-o-man were they enjoyed!

(Don't let Ava's "first impression" fool you...she LOVED them!)

Crazy as we are, we attempted a cousins picture. Yeah. That didn't quite turn out.

Aunt Shannon & Uncle Corey always think of something fun to do. This year, they brought water balloons.

Uncle Corey even convinced the kids that he'd give them $5 for every balloon they caught when he threw them from the garage roof! SUCKERS!

(Yes, that's Shane pushing through all the little kids...trying to "make a buck"!)

That is hilarious!! Let me throw water balloons to you and if you catch them you earn $5.00?? Look at all the puddles on the driveway. Something tells me the kids didn't make too much money out there - did they? :)

So ... whaddya mean you don't have much in you?? When's your next race??
