Sprinklers and Popsicles

Yesterday was absolutely beautiful, so we all put on our swimsuits and played in the backyard. It was the quad's first encounter with sprinklers and the water hose. (Thanks for the idea, Mari!) I've got some great pics and good footage of the highlights!

Sassy Sav checking out the awesome sprinkler ball that Chris gave us and pointing to a plane


Drew in the Green, Ethan in the Hawaiian shorts



Ben (pouting after getting sprayed---watch the video, hilarious- but sad for Ben at the same time!)



Some quick snippets of our fun-filled afternoon:





Andrew seriously makes us laugh every day. This kid is beyond quirky--just a different little guy. His personality is hilarious.







Ethan- my little waterbug...obsessed with his bellybutton. He's actually saying "bellybutton" (or his version of the word) in this pic.



Sav carried this "wand" (or drumstick) around all day--she either feels like a princess, or uses it as protection against her bros! (probably a little of both!)



Peek-a-boo never gets old...


My buddies



Ben loves to chill...right here in the same spot. Doesn't move for hours...perfectly content watching the planes fly by.




Ethan checking out the giant ball that sprayed him earlier...



seconds later, Drew did the same thing...


Miss Priss catchin some rays...



LoVe this pic! It reminds me of my childhood and eating popsicles outside in my swimsuit with my cousins...







Ahhh...Happy Spring! We thoroughly enjoy the Spring, because we will be SWEATING profusely in NO time here in Texas!

What a fun day! I really didn't mean to laugh at little Ben...ha ha..

I loved when the popsicles dropped and the boys picked them up at the same time! I had to watch that one a couple of times!

Enjoy the Spring weather!

TOOOOOOOOOO Precious!
"That's Awesome". I agree.

It's heart "warming" to see you all enjoying the weather. Just weird that we live in the same country as it's sleeting here while I type. Wanna move to Indiana????? LOL.

I figure if Mama is laughing at little Ben, then it's okay for me to! Your kiddos are adorable!

The Pifer's said...

Suz, they are adorable, I love the popsicle pic!!!! I know what you mean about heat in TX, with us barely having a winter, this summer is bound to be "extra" hot!!! :)

Kristin said...

So precious! You are such a great mom giving them so many fun experiences and great memories!

Shosh said...

haha, those were great videos! Hysterical! They are so cute...I cant believe he can say "its awesome!"
oh...and completely jealous of your weather...its 40 and raining here today...

Allison R said...

This is so precious. My daughter loves playing with the water hose and water baloons. We are already enjoying the Texas weather too and looking forward to the summer.

Ms. M said...

Made me smile and laugh out loud ("it's awesome"). And, I love what a good dog Shiloh is. But, how is your yard so neat? My dog tears up my yard by romping through it - light lightening.

Becky said...

Amen! It is SO hot today here in Fort Worth...Lordy! They are so adorable and getting so big!

Kristi said...

It looks like yal had a great day outside. I can't believe he said "It's awesome". They are so cute, too funny that they did the exact same thing at the exact same time. Love reading your blog, and seeing pictures of you precious little ones.

Rebecca said...

Those pictures and videos are absolutely precious! And Shiloh looks nearly identical to my beagle, Toby. They could be twins! You didn't happen to get her from a breeder in Weatherford, did you?

Michelle said...

Okay, LOVED everything about this post!!!! What fun! Doesn't get much better than swimsuits, sprinklers, and popsicles! They are all absolutely adorable!

The Porter Family said...

Looks like you guys had so much fun :) I love all of their different personalities...so cute!

DJones said...

Looks like you had more than enough fun to go around! I might have to watch this over and over as it has been nothing but rain for days here in Indy.

Amazing Greis said...

That is absolutely the cutest thing ever. Sav in her piggy tails and bathing suit is precious and the boys, well they're boys and cuter than ever. It's amazing how much BIGGER they get every time you post new pictures. Boy, time flies!!!

Sweating in Texas?!?!? Yes we will...

Cochran Quads said...

Looks like a blast. Up here in NJ, we'll have a day like that in...oh...I don't know...AUGUST!

Meredith said...

Oh, thanks for the great laughs! You're a great Momma and blogger!! You keep me motivated to keep blogging....and now if I can only figure out the video to website...

Thanks Suz!

Lori said...

Looks like fun! What cuties eating the popsicles! Suz I've been curious about the whole blogher thing. What is the benefit of being part of it? Do you get paid from that? and I love reading your product reviews. We enjoyed the beautiful days recently too!

Lani said...

The popsicle photo is precious!! Well, they all are, but that's my favorite:)

Alissa said...

I'm de-lurking...been following your terrific blog for a couple of months (I'm a mom to 2 year old twins, born @ 28wks & 6days)...and wanted to say that seeing your munchkins in the backyard with the water was hilarious & "awesome" (how cute is that?!)
~Alissa (a Canadian who is so envious of your beautiful Texas weather already!)

The Carlsons said...

Again, I LOVE the pictures! It looks like the kids had a blast playing...and especially eating popsicles ;)

Oh, and I LOVE Sav's bathing suit! Where did you get it? What a stylish little lady! Just like her Mama :D

Thanks for sharing!

This is too cute!
I love how Ethan is eating his popsicle backwards licking the stick! So precious...can hardly wait to do that here in Minnesota. Thanks for sharing!

The Ripley's said...

That was absolutely adorable!!! :)

annalee said...

mmm, mmm, mmm, what a delightful fun in the sun day! that first picture of savannah in her swimsuit and pigtails is adorable!

Anonymous said...

You don't know me, but I'm so fascinated with your blogs (I found you thru my friends brothers page on King Quads), and I too had to watch that video of the twins. Not only did they pick up the piece at the same time, but the way their hands BOTH go up, then down to pick it up in the same way was totally neat. Multiples are so awesome!!

Alisha said...

Such cuties! I love that she has 3 brothers to protect her! So sweet!

Glad the weather was beautiful and they got to play in the water!

jenn said...

love the videos.....and the pictures too. ok, the entire post was great! they look so cute in their suites!

chicagoshopper said...

I am just IN LOVE with your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your delightful and adorable kids with us. The popsicle pic is my fave.

Heza Hekele said...

Adorable!

Be careful of that drumstick Sav is holding...the bottom three stripes come off and are a perfect choking size! We had two sets and it happened to three out of four of the sticks...once in a toddlers mouth! I thought it was a fluke the first time, but it wasn't the case...

Robin said...

so adorable........looks like ya'll are having a blast. I love the "it's awesome" video....it's so clear! Oh and well i pretty much loved this post and it's giving me warm weather fever!

Jennifer said...

I desperately need your help! How do you keep your Beagle from shedding all over the place??!!

I am 36 weeks pregnant and we own a beagle who rules the house! He is sweet but sheds all over the place! I don't want it to get all over the baby's stuff. And..the baby is coming soon!

Help a friendly blog stalker.

I have to tell you that I recently discovered quite possibly the best summer invention ever! You have to look for 'Mighty Mini's' by Popsicle brand. These popsicles are about a quarter the size of normal popsicles and melt MUCH slower. They are made with a touch of gelatin and they are virtually drip free! They are called 'slow melt' popsicles in some states (I am in CA) Because of the smaller size they are perfect for kids and have a lot less sugar. I have a 15 month old and a 2 1/2 year old and these popsicles are the BEST. Try them you won't be dissapointed (:

The Synnott's said...

its nice that summer is on its way but its so hot!!! we have been playing in sprinklers too and the boys done know what to do with it. i am ready for the popsicles though. looks like yall are having so much fun
