Friday’s Fotos: A Priate Ship and MNO

As I mentioned before, our kiddie pool from last year needed to be replaced.

Behold the pirate ship pool!


The Dread Pirate Logan

The Dread Pirate Burke

(Yes, those are inflatable pirate hat, shield, and sword – 2 sets! And an inflatable treasure chest as well. Oh and the cannons shoot water if you attach the hose. LOL!)


Last night, I attended the National Mom’s Night Out. (I may have mentioned one or two times that I put together 150 Swag Bags for this event…) It was sooooo much fun!! And my friends Tanya and VP helped out too!

Getting ready to unload the Swag Bags

Cupcakes from 5Bites Cupcakes

(The 5Bites Cupcakes were SO good! If you’re in the area, definitely give them a try.)

Waiting in Line for Things to Start

Edible Arrangements

(The Edible Arrangements fruit was good too – and went really fast!)

Refreshements Table

Mini Manicure

Make-up Sessions

Massage Chair

(The nails and massages were provided by Jesamondo Salon and Spa; the make-up was provided by Dianna Quagenti.)

And Land’s End provided very capable staff to do the swimsuit fittings. (I figured a picture of that would be a wee bit inappropriate though 😉 )

And the Swag Bags were such a hit that one woman begged for one for a “friend who is parking the car.” We told her that there were plenty and that when her friend got there, she could register for one herself. About 1/2 hour later, she was witnessed taking one of the bags that was behind the table! WHO DOES THAT?! We chatted quickly amongst ourselves and decided that we should go after her. Katie stepped up and got the bag back (explaining that the bags were meant to be one per person. GO Katie!!) Crazy night. But what a blast 🙂

Saturday Snapshot 2: Pool Time!

The weather is so nice today that we broke out the pool from last year! (unfortunately, it’s slowly leaking both water and air…good thing I already figured they’d need a new one this year.)

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go over and have a look at what others are doing on this oh-my-goodness-hot Saturday.

Thursday Theater: Pool Time!

I’ve put up a few photos of our new kiddie pool, but I figured I’d put some video up as well.

These were taken when we first put the pool up. The first video is the kids playing in it without water. The second is when there’s water in it.

…and you can see how much fun the nanny is too. At least… *I* think she is 😉

Baby Picture Sundays

Debi hosts the Baby Picture Sundays. Hop on over there to see who’s playing, and join in too!

This week’s theme is The Heat is On! so I figured I’d post some kiddie pool pictures.

The kids are LOVING this pool (and I can’t believe how big it is…) The only problem is that it loses a lot of air over night. Not a HUGE deal since that means we should be able to move it around a lot so the grass doesn’t die (and we have an electric pump), but annoying anyway.
