The Day the Sun Peeked Out

Once...there was this one day....when the sun actually peeked out. For a minute.

On that day, we went to the park. So I thought I'd share a whole lot of photos from that day.

Best shot of the day...to be tucked away to show to future boyfriends.

I love these shoes! I couldn't find any in my size!
This look on Cowgirl's face is the result of Bookworm standing on the net a little behind her, and jumping up and down...trying to make her fall!

This is Bookworm's best "bored" look because he says the park is for little kids and babies.

Pixie's idea of swinging "high" is barely moving.
Cowgirl is more of a thrill seeker!

I took these last pictures for Amanda (Sturgmom)...she's a little envious of my mountains...so I want to share them with her whenever I can!

Of course, the rain came back the next day. It's still here. It's taking a 24 hour break right now...but we know it's back tomorrow!

I love the pictures. What a fun day. I also like the girl's hats. Way cute.

Cassie said...

Oh I love her shoes! I want a pair!

Looks like a blast! You must have sent me your clouds, minus the rain! I want the rain please...its flippin hot outside!

Why don't they make adult versions of little girls' shoes? Seriously, they are SO cute!
Those pics are great!
Last week? My friends and I decided to meet at the park with all of our 6 kids. All week was sunny.
Friday was the day we were gonna meet. It just figures, it rained.
The kids didn't mind and we were so excited to be outta the house and in adult company, we huddled through it and outlasted that rain!
Woo hoo! It's exactly the kind of thing you'll see at Northwest parks. No umbrellas either!
Also, your mountains are beautiful. We have LOTS of mountains but they're covered in trees so you can't see the rocks and stuff. I like yours! ha! I like your mountains better than my mountains, that sounds strange.

Such a fantastic set of pictures. Getting out to the park like this is really what being a kid is all about. Too fun!

Such great pictures! Isn't it funny how different our little ones can be? I mean, they grow up in the same house, have the same surroundings, same parents, and they are definitely their own little people from day 1, I love it! :)

Oh, Xazmin, those photos are great!! :) The shot with Cowgirl swinging high from behind is amazing! The underwear shot will be good blackmail later. Your kids are so cute!!! :)

Sturgmom said...

So glad y'all got to have some fun at the park! Us? Well, it's too hot to live. If we sit inside and don't move amuscle, then we can stay cool. ;)

LOVE the mountains! Thanks for the pics!!

Rhonda said...

How adorable are your kids!!!
Great pics of a fun day! It's HOT here...index in the 100's...95 today. It's suppose to be like that all week here!

Jenny said...

Great pictures! No more park for us for awhile. The heat index has been around 105 to 110 the last few days!

It's too hot to do anything!

Rachel Holloway said...

HOLY MOLY! Very cool park! Love the pictures you got...very in the moment! :)

Heather said...

We have cloudless skies for 5 straight days now. It would be heavenly if not for the 90 degree temps it brought with it. I'm actually looking forward to rain we are getting on Thursday to lower the temps.

Beautiful views!!

Kelli said...

Great...now I'm jealous of your mountains. They are breathtaking. Those are some adorable shoes I must say...lucky girl.

Candy Graber said...
