It is hot

Since we don't have the luxury of trotting down to the beach like some Florida cousins that I have do... we just keep pulling out the sprinker! And, YES, Brooks is in a diaper. At this point in the morning, we had been working outside for a few hours, and the kids were so sweaty. I dragged out the sprinkler and took most of their clothes off. They cooled off and (you guessed it) Scott was out there too, teaching Kate to jump over the sprinker. My 3 children! :)

I guess this is how we cool off in Alabama - in the sprinklers with our diapers.





Right before church I took a minute to get some pictures of the kids in their "semi-matching" clothes. Kate was ready for some pics, and Brooks was NOT. In fact, he kept saying, "Inside!" and I asked him if he wanted to go in, and he said, "Es Ma'am" *I think that qualifies as the first time my stubborn son has said that without being prompted.

Their brother/sister pictures are getting better!

In Alabama, you cool off however you can. I think leaving the diaper on is a little much! HA HA! It's pretty darn hot here in GA, too. After 7 years in NC, I don't tolerate the heat as well! It's hot there, but not as hot-- and nowhere as humid! Isn't that what they always say? "It's not the heat, it's the humidity!" Your kids are soooooo cute! Love seeing them in pix!

We are a lil redneck here too with the diaper and the sprinkler. Hey, whatever works and keeps us cool during the heat! Brooks is starting to look like a lil man...so much like Scott!!

Oh, poor Brooks, that face is so pitiful. I do love the "Es Ma'am" that cracks me up.

Cute pics! Why is it that water out of the hose pipe tastes so good on a summer day? It is so cold and refreshing!
