Scout Picnic/Swim Party

Last Friday, we had a scout picnic/swim party. The cub scouts rented out a local pool for it! We had a picnic on the grass outside of the pool area first, then headed into the pool area to swim. We had the whole pool to ourselves!

The boys were loving the diving boards!

Even Jeff went off!

Lily was content to stay in the shallow end. :0)

I have to add this picture because I think it is so cute how they are both standing there, watching the boys. :0)

It was SO fun, and the boys liked getting to see some of their friends again!

Sidewalk Paint

Last week, we invited cousins over to do sidewalk paint! All you need is 1/2 cup cornstarch, 1/2 cup water, food coloring, plastic cups, and big paintbrushes! (I like that it is made out of cornstarch & food coloring, that way if the babies put any in their mouths, it wouldn't hurt them.)

The kids all loved it!

Everyone was covered, even the babies!!

After all of the paint was gone, we got out water balloons to "wash" off!

After the balloons were all gone, we still had to use the hose to get the paint off of some of them. :0)
Then it was time to go inside for some yummy jello jigglers! It was a great time had by all!!

Coco Key Water Resort

Last Sunday, we went to Coco Key Water Resort in Kansas City as part of our weekend getaway with the kids. This water park was almost exactly like the Great Wolf Lodge's inside water park, except it was way cheaper!! We got day passes for $10.00 each. Not too bad!! The kids were SO excited, and got right into the water.

The thing Jeff & I liked most was that we could sit and relax and drink a few of these yummy drinks while the kids played!

It was a lot of fun and we are already planning on going again!
