Hi mamas! Forgive me for being a bit a lot tardy with this! Husband wasn't around much last weekend, and this weekend he had to miss part of his Father's Day here with us, so we took full advantage of the time he was here to hang out and enjoy family time.

Before I move on, a quick, and perhaps slightly cheesy shout-out to my husband:

Thank you for tirelessly giving yourself to our family. For taking care of us. For protecting us. For providing for us. And for being a whole lotta fun. The girls are so blessed to have a hands-on papa, who works hard all day, then plays hard when he gets home, feeds them supper, and then helps with bath time. And I couldn't have a better partner to walk through this parenting gig with. You rock; I love you.

I was aiming for this sweet picture of the three of you this weekend, but this was as good as it got:

Please take a moment to check out these loves!
 This summer has been heating up around here! I confess, that I get a little anxious when the girls cheeks get flushed on hot days.

The other day, I randomly filled up two water bottles. I did this, so that they could help me water the flowers without them getting completely soaked.

Turns out, they enjoy spraying themselves in the face. And, amazingly, they do it without even flinching. They absolutely love it!

What's been great about this is that since they've started doing this, they've been more comfortable putting their faces in the water when we swim in the pool, and they don't mind (as much) getting water in their faces/eyes during bath times.

Just look at those beautiful wet faces!!

Plus, I know they're cooling themselves off when they need to. And, it's only a fine mist, so they aren't getting drenched.

Spray bottles are cheap, and a great thing to add to your outside arsenal of toys--especially on hot days!

Can't wait to see what you're loving!

Before you even said it, I was thinking, "Ooh! Perhaps a way to get the girls more comfortable with water in their faces!" ;)

I LOVE those pictures of your wet girlies...their smiles are priceless!!!

Love it! My son loves water in his face outside or in the pool, but the bath tub -- no way!

I finally resorted to getting him a pair of swimming goggles just for bathtime. He loves it!

Great shout out to Daddy BTW!!
