Yes, that's what we did this morning! We got up, ate our usual breakfast of cereal then went out back to play in the water. The kids LOVED it! Good idea Paul!! Last time we brought out the Slip-n-Slide the girlies really didn't like it. I don't know if it was the water squirting them in the eyes or the not-so-hot temps or perhaps a wind blowing through. Not today. They REVELED in it! Lots of splashing, jumping, squealing, running and sliding! Very fun!
WARNING! There are a LOT of pics here. Mama just enjoyed taking pictures of the kiddos :)

She looks like she is enjoying the water here :)Anna, thinking intently about something ;)The only picture of the 5 kids. Hey, it's the best I could get with all of them running around ;) Anna, Brielle, Suzan, Bethany and Jared (in the back, behind the water spray)Jared trying to move/shift the water spray aroundThen, Jared wanted to jump into our pool. I also thought "hey, we have grass all over us so yeah, let's jump in to 'rinse off'" ;) Jared in the pool and Anna, Bethany, Suzan and Brielle sitting on the ledge. We have a little pool "seat" area on that first step that the girlies like to sit on. And we love the Puddle Jumpers (basically a Coast Guard approved life jacket)! It keeps them a bit safer but the 2 of us are always in the pool with the 5 kids. The kids enjoy our pool! Out of all of them, Suzan is our fish in the pool! She LOVES playing "Ring Around the Otter" with Dad or Mama. She's great at blowing bubbles in the water, going or bobbing under water and kicking her legs while on her tummy or back. Go Suz!We might have to Slip-n-Slide every Saturday morning now ;)
