I have noticed, lately, that most of my pictures are of Jensen. This is in no way purposeful, he just allows me to take pictures where the girls make weird faces or won't stand still and then everything ends up fuzzy.
So here's a recap of what Jensen (and I) have been up to.
Falling asleep "reading". I just love this. It is one of my favorite bedtime rituals to go into the kids' rooms and gather their stacks of books and turn out their lights. This doesn't happen every night, but when it does I cherish it! I don't really cherish trying to wriggle Freya's glasses off of her face once she's asleep, I'll tell you that much.
We took a pre-lunch trip down to the closest park and everyone rode their bike. Jensen still doesn't like using the pedals, though he can now reach, so he continues to Fred Flintstone his bike to our destinations. He is pretty quick, but that still doesn't mean he won't get his shoe caught and flip over the handlebars.
I had a nice afternoon read/drink on the deck while the kids played with their water pistols. The book was an excellent read and the beer was an excellent refreshment. Right now, we don't have a ton of down time during the summer so these fleeting moments have to be taken advantage of promptly!
This child spent his time outside dousing himself. He would shoot streams into the air and then stand under them and get soaked. His sisters helped soak him as well, but he never turned his aim toward them. It was hot and I don't blame him for letting them do all the work to cool him down without reciprocating.
I just like this shot. Droopy drawers, wet hair, defeated stance. Sadly, I had just reprimanded him for using his light saber to smack me, so that is where the face came from. But it's still cute altogether and I'll take that away from it!
