Summer's officially here, I know this because Adorable Hubby is yelling at everyone in the family and half the kids in the neighborhood to, "Shut the door!" Adorable Hubby likes a cool house, with seven boys and all their friends coming and going and no central air keeping the cold in and the heat out is the only answer. Of course there's the extra body heat generated from a stressed out yelling man ;)
My little boys know summer is here because we finally bought a blue plastic kiddie pool. In February as soon as Valentines Day is over they begin asking when we're getting the kiddie pool. On snowy days they ask three or four times on sunny days 10 or 12 times. Generally by the time its actually warm enough to enjoy it they have been playing in it for two or three weeks because I just couldn't take the pestering and caved in. This year was cold and busy so it wasn't until last Wednesday that I finnnnnnallllyyy! got a pool. Thursday they were out in it from 10:30 in the morning until 9:00 at night and this brings me to the subject of tan lines.
Isaac and Joseph have the cute little boy tan line just at their hips, Adam, well... we'll call it a plumbers tan line. It's so stinkin' cute to see the distinct line on his bottom where his swim suit comes to rest. I thought about a picture, but you'll just have to take my word for it.
Or, you can come visit, we'll hang out by the pool, watch the kiddies play, enjoy a Popsicle and get you some tan lines of your own.
