the sprinkler...

this past week...I taught our girls how to do the sprinkler...and Daddy helped them perfect it over the weekend...

I know serious stuff, right?

Something to be proud of indeed...

the girls perfected it over the weekend while our plans for the entire day Saturday were cancelled...

Madison's soccer game was held just in time from the rain...so we did get just one thing in

but the girl's pictures with my ubber talented friend Tarah were cancelled and have to be rescheduled...
she's got something pretty neat planned so I really cannot wait to hopefully give you a sneak peak when they are taken...

so with the errands we replaced our Saturday with...we did sprinkler lessons during the day...in the car...at home...it was quite the day

you all know what I'm talking about right?

yes we are one of those families when there is dancing at events that my in-laws and Bobby and I do the ridiculous dance moves...
well it takes me a few deep breathes to get started but once you do...you forget how to really dance because you get stuck doing the silly moves...




the lawn mower....
the sprinkler...
or the one from "Can't buy me love..." {you remember that one too, right? with the arms}
or the head move from A Night at the Roxbury...{ridiculous yes I realize this}

my brother-in-law even got footloose down pretty good for his sister's wedding a couple years ago...
I think we like to act like goofballs to cover up the fact that none of us cannot dance a lick you know...

but the girls had a blast doing it...
and we had some serious laughs...




that's our big accomplishment over the weekend...
teaching them the sprinkler...

Miss Madison wanted to learn another move while Hayley was sleeping, and she really got her somersault down too...



of course...Bobby still wanted to see if he could still do a somersault after all this time...
he wasn't too shabby...


the girls and I made up a dance move for him to do at the next family gathering {who knows when that will be} but according to him he needs ample time to get his wrist heeled {or "hilled" as he talks} from an old injury...

but I was pretty proud of myself for making one up...yes I was indeed...I think it will be hilarious if it works out like we imagine it...


we had some good canteloupe eating in some "super cute" shoes according to Hayley...a phrase her mama helped her coin because her emphasis on "super" makes me laugh everytime


it seems like it has been too long since we had serious unplanned fun with the girls all together so Saturday turned out to be a blast

that's about it...my car's getting some TLC today...YIKES...a little more than expected but nothing you can do about that can you?...I'm just thankful I know the owner so I got a ride home so I didn't have to wait all day in the shoppe...

and it'll be ready just in time to pick the girls up from school:)

Madison wanted to send one more sprinkler at you for this rainy Monday!

Don't forget that any and every daily activity can be turned into a dance move like the sprinkler and lawn mower. There is the diggin' a ditch, grocery shopping cart, etc... I really don't know if you can imagine how these would look with out seeing them done, but they are pretty darn funny, and even kinda look like dance moves...kinda! :)

This is a class at the Ranaud Spirit Center off Hwy K in Ofallon. We have been there for dance, karate and swimming. Jaedin and I work on his homework in the lobby area while the girls dance. It's close and the kids LOVE it!

Tracey said...

Okay, I have to tell you I am just grinning from ear to ear over here as I peruse your pics...my husband's "move" has always been the sprinkler too! It never ceases to make me laugh when he does it!! He recently took my daughter to the daddy/daughter dance at school and we all joked ahead of time that he needed to be sure and do his sprinkler move while he was there!

Very cute pics of the kiddos!!!

Hugs ~
