Arizona is wonderful place to grow up...a perfect mixture of warm air (okay, and sometimes, just bloody hot) and sunshine...perfect for triplets to enjoy a water table in the middle of their GREEN grass! (That's right, people...don't adjust your screens again. This time it really IS green!)
Such a perfect toy. Just their height. Perfect for splashing, dunking, dipping, and even for drinking...A perfect socialization tool. I've always been grateful that my kids would always have playmates, but what I'm quickly realizing is that they don't always WANT playmates! They are very "me-centered" right now and I can't say that I blame them. They want what they want, when they want it. But knowing that fact makes it that much sweeter when they DO play together...what a perfect day. (I'm not going to lie. I'm pretty sure these were taken on Mother's Day! But come on, I already admitted that I fell off the blog bandwagon when Colton had surgery. ) And on top of them being "old" photos, I accidentally uploaded them backwards... Scroll down to see Brian's family's visit on Mother's Day weekend. They came down to see Colton after his surgery and spent the weekend with us! It was perfect weather, perfect company. Good times..good times...

This was my best attempt at corralling the Bunchkins for a Mother's Day photo! Ha!
Oh well...we did the best we could.
Ethan Bear trying to decide just how much he hates sitting in the grass...
His buddy Piper showing him how much fun grass is!
Pretty girl..fancy skirt.
Little boy...ALL boy. I'm not gonna lie. I was SO glad to see Colton outside playing with his siblings because I'll tell you what, at that very moment in time, that little guy was in pain and discomfort. He was just beginning the healing process...I think this was 5 days post surgery, and only his second full day home from the hospital.
Hunter happy to have her Partner in crime back!
Sigh...This is my life. I couldn't ask for more.
Mini-Me and other Mini-Me, meet your father. :)
Love these boys

We agreed that none of us was looking our "photo best" but isn't it still a nice picture? I love it!
