Sunshine Sunday - water, trax, and my iPhone

Rex got introduced to a slip and slide this week and he fell in love.  He hasn't stopped talking about when we can use it again.  This picture perfectly depicts boyhood fun to me.....running in the water with a little puppy following behind him.  Good times.

Rex has been very happy to have more reasons to use his goggles.

We took the Trax to the downtown mall that has a splash area the other day.  The boys loved riding on a train.  Here's Baden waiting for the train.  He was ecstatic.

We had a friend come along that my boys adore.  She's amazing.

The fountains at the mall were a hit with Rex.

And Rex tried to convince Baden it was fun.

Lastly, I am grateful for my iPhone.  I know it's just a device, but it has a pretty decent camera that enables me to take pictures I never would have taken because I didn't want to bring my big camera - like these shots of my boys at our favorite store.  They love sitting on the balls before we go in and when we're on our way out.

I love being able to capture the ordinary and common things in our day to day life.  I actually took all the pictures in this post with my iPhone.  Sweet, huh?

What were you grateful for this week?

My older boy always tries to convince my younger one that the fountain is cool, and fun! (the fountain in our town that is!) So cute!

I'm grateful for my recently-adopted baby pit bull. She was born in a terrible home and was abused, as most pit bulls are, luckily we got her before her ears and tail got cut off. She's been super happy here and is great friends with the rest of the gang (another dog, a cat and a bunny).
I'm grateful for this awesome blog, too :)

I miss being a kid. I never thought id say that because of all those times I couldn't wait to grow up! Ohh to go back and change my words! Looks like an awesome weekend to me! Happy 4th!

I love my iphone too! I know it is only a thing, but it really does help me capture so many "moments" I would otherwise miss! Not just pic's but when I have a few minutes I jot down notes about the little things my boys say or do that I want to remember. Thanks for the share to remind me to appreciate the little things!

My daughter also likes to sit and bounce (with help) on the balls at your favorite store! I'm glad for my iphone to get everyday shots of my kiddos!!! Have a super day celebrating the country's birthday!

I'm grateful for being able to take a family vacation. Our family has been super stressed and we needed a week at the beach. I am loving life!

Darling pictures of your boys. My funny boy does the same thing when we go to Target!

My boys love the Target balls, too! And the slip n'slide. We haven't been to the Gateway for the splash pad thing in so long, I doubt even my oldest remembers it. Adding it to our summer list of to-dos. Thanks!

I'm grateful for little boys bruised knees that make me smile, so cute! I don't know if that is your slip and slide but if not I am going to suggest how you can make your own. Buy a plastic paint tarp, the heavy duty kind and put a sprinkler on it. I have even put gromet holes and use tent spikes to hold it down. Want to make it really fun, put in a bit of a hill and add some baby shampoo, a great way to clean them up before bed time!
