what do you do....


when you play hookie stay out of school for a week hiding from the Swine Flu?


Well. First you can....

Fill the water table with soap and play for hours
while being showered with the hose by Mama.

OR...

You can hit a triple at your T-ball game and make your
Mama jump up and yell, "That's my boy!"

OR...

You can pack a lunch, go to the park and have a picnic.

OR...

How about trying to wrestle the raft away from your sister in the pool?

OR....

You can even beg your Daddy to leave work early and spend a few hours at the beach with you! Cause you know saying "Pleeeeeease Daddy" always works!

(For those of you that are unsure of this picture, Daddy and AJ were playing "Daddy caught the biggest fish in the ocean".)



OR LASTLY....

You can just stay home and smile at Mama, while playing you're a rock star, cause Mama's our biggest fan!

Or, if you live in Seattle, you can sit in the house snuggled under a down quilt and watch the rain fall. While it's 48 outside. In the middle of May. Ugh. Today's better (using the word loosely!) since it's about 55. And raining.

SERIOUSLY considering moving to Florida or anywhere else warm and sunny. Think hubby wants to commute cross-country? Somehow I doubt it. :\

He And Me + 3 said...

Beautiful pictures and I love the AJ fish picture. So cute. what fun.

Sara Bowyer said...

yep! that made me smile!!! Loved it. and have to say I am just a bit, okay a lot, jealous of your sunshine and the ocean!!!
