Escaping the Heat!

I took some pictures at my parents house of the kids playing in the pools. I think they captured the day perfectly! Lily literally took an hour to eat ONE Oreo cookie! Every time we tried to take it or hurry her, she would not have it. First she took it apart and ate the top. Then took the next 45 minutes or so meticulously eating the cream; savoring it a little (very little) at a time and finally ate the bottom. We always make fun of my mom for taking FOREVER to eat a chocolate; Lily made Mom look like Dad!
Abby is getting braver in the water and likes to stay there all day. I usually make her come out when her lips turn purple! She is growing up so fast and loves to read and harass the twins all day long. Thankfully, she still loves to cuddle and read and do art in all of it's forms.Liam just loves to cuddle and has that wistful look down pat. He is blessed with nice eyelashes, man hands and an unhealthy obsession with stars, airplanes and wheels!It has been so hot, we have all been grateful to have a place to go cool off. We also went to the lake last week where we had a nice picnic and Paul and Abby got flung around on the inner-tube thingy for a while. Also, Lily did some interpretive dance-walking in the shallows. YIKES!
