spring cleaning

spring is here...
and our pool is diirrrrty!
actually, it is a very disgusting greenish color that looks
as if little un-named species have been living in it all winter.
the kids and my pool guy, a.k.a. my husband, took on the 
unthinkable... turning the pool blue again.

the very next day......
ta-dum. i give you our crystal blue pool. 
 i have to say, i have the best pool guy in town.

more spring and more cleaning....
jack thought he would do a little cleaning by
 sweeping up the streets.
he called it "cleaning the earth".
i'm not sure if this is a promotion or a demotion
from a delivery boy??

new little friends

meet our new little octopus friends.
yesterday, we went to anthropologie for our
weekly activity day with crystal. crystal is our friend 
             who plays with jack and ava while i shop. better known as browsing the sale section.
  (because that is all i can afford) sometimes, they color pictures or play games or read stories or make fun crafts. yesterday they
came home with these little fellas. 

ava's octopus had pink tentacles because
pretty much everything has to be pink. 

jack said we were supposed to stick them
in the ground so their legs could blow
in the wind.
so we did.

delivery boy

jack likes to pretend.
lately, he likes to pretend that he is a delivery man
who delivers flowers to the neighbors doorsteps.
ava is his assistant and she does whatever he says.

"ava, put the flower there."
"no, right there."
"good job, ava."
"okay, let's do the next house."
(said in an urgent tone of voice)

off to make another delivery.

taking a break from all those deliveries.

a hose day

it was hot. the pool was too cold. sooo... i gave the kids a hose
and they went to town with it.
at first, they just kind of watered stuff with it, then...
i slowly watched our sand box turn into the pacific ocean.

there was sand everywhere.  kind of like at the beach.
only it was arizona and it was in my backyard.
i sort of forgot to apply the sunblock.  by night, this is what jack's
poor back looked like. quite lobsterish.

pretty in yellow

yesterday eden turned 3 months old.
she is simply a delight.
she still has big eyes.
sleeps eight hours straight at night...
 loves chewing on her clothes.
and is already learning how to walk!
okay, not really. but that would be funny.
she loves, loves her family and all the attention
she gets from jack and ava.
and her dad.
even though ava tries to steal her thunder sometimes.
ava is stealing a smooch here from her dad along
with some attention.
ava really knows how to work her dad over.
i'm sure eden is taking notes.
