It is no surprise.

Since summer is coming to an end with the start of school on Monday, the girls and I have been making the most of our last few days.

So today I told them that it was a water day. We filled up the water table, filled up the kiddie pool for one last time, turned on a sprinkler, and made one of those water-noodle sprinklers. They spent probably about 6+ hours outside.....I sure didn't last that long.....heck, Acadia didn't last that long even with all that water out there. Now, now....Don't worry I made them stay out of the water when I went in for a break here and there. =) They ate lunch out there and played in the 'club house.' And the amazing thing is that there was ABSOLUTELY NO FIGHTING!!!! I kept wondering if there would be flying pigs too. ;)

Acadia didn't want to get out of her swimming suit even though she was inside watching a movie (I didn't think making her change was worth the fight....I am trying to choose my battles and let other things slide so I am not such a mean mommy). Well hours later when the sun is starting to set she decides to change....Now this next part shouldn't come as a surprise.....and about 10 minutes later this is what I find:


I am grateful that no one got burned.
