Some free advice

If you stumble across a water play area, and you don't have a change of clothes or even a towel, then for pete's sake do not—I repeat DO NOT—believe your children when they promise to just dip their toes in and not really get wet.

  3. The old "I'll only get my feet wet" story, huh. And you fell for it -- hook, line and sinker (now you know where that expression comes from. And you thought it was fishing. HA!)

    Oh, well... they look like they had the most fun ever. Which doesn't do anything for your car upholstery, but... oh, well.

  4. That's like believing that they only one 1 M&M - and they will split it! HAHAHA!

    At least they didn't tell you later, in a crowded store, that they peed in the fountain like Caroline did. Yep, she really did.

  5. Been there and done that! We spotted one of those play areas at the weekend, and my mum wanted to let the kids 'look at it', she couldn't understand why I immediately headed in the other direction.

    However, if you do have spare clothes, they are the most fun places to play!

  6. Love the photos - so it was worth it... but I could have told you...

    We have had very sad H2/S2 on numerous occasions when we told them 'no, we don't have a towel'. Guess we should have said 'yes' and taken out the camera...

  8. Very cute. I am betting that you will be putting a bag with towels and a change of clothes into your vehicle now and leaving it there "just in case".

  9. 'Oh but mamma....the water just jumped out of the ground!'

    Heh....SO FUN!! I think my favourite was captured in the end pics when the girls felt the water was triggered by giggles and screams of laughter!!

    What a wonderful way to end this visit together! Watching your girls run, skip and jump through the water! Loved it!

    Miss you like crazy!! xoxo

  11. LOVE it! I think that they had the right idea. Can't let an opportunity like that pass them by. and eventually, they were wet anyway, so why not have fun!

  18. Love that last shot.

    Girls say: "FIERCE!"

  21. Love it!

    Love the cute little outfits too.

  22. At least you had the camera. Who needs a towel when you have a camera!?!

    ReplyDelete
  23. But they had fun and they will remember when they are older. That is what truly counts. Now get two thick beach towels, and two outfits in your Twinmobile. :) Wait, if you do that, we won't get fun pictures. OK, disregard my a$$vice.

  25. Those are awesome photos. We went to the pool today and my daugther just sat at the edge but as she usually hates the pool I thought that was brave. Next time she will probaly fling herself in like those two. :-)

    Spontaneity--where great memories are made!
    When our girls were 3 years old we came across a water park in our travels. We let them play in it in their underwear and used their clothes to dry them off after. We laughed so hard watching them.
    The photos of your 'loving life' girls are beautiful.

  28. The little tie-dye t-shirts are from Nordstrom. They're in stock right now. Catherine and I got them about a week ago for the girls' school pictures and then decided not to use them, but they were cute enough and affordable enough not to get returned.
