Swim Day at Sherrie's House!

Matthew had to be away one day for a while and I have grown so accustomed to having my Mattmos around that he had to have Sherrie babysit me. :) She is such a great sitter! Why didn't I have one that good while I was a child?

Sherrie's pool surely had a workout that day.

This is one of the ONLY photos I have of Elijah because he wouldn't stay above water. He loves the water now.

Remy was very photogenic that day. Matthew got some great photos!

The kids had started out with making water ballons with little water balloons. They were using the jets from the pool filter to fill them up. I have to admit that they were fun and I had a hand in filling some too. Madison had the GREAT idea of using normal sized balloons. It was so funny!

Those balloons were so much fun!

Sherrie grilled hot dogs and they were so good. :)

Here is a photo of the balloon arsenal the kids had saved up.

Of course there is always some kind of critter to share. Look at this neat caterpillar! What is this? I haven't had the time to sit at the computer to find out!

Shoot 'em Remy! Look at his little tongue in this one. Hee hee...

Matthew did manage to get one photo of them all.

We had so much fun and it made the time pass so fast, too fast! Sherrie, you are one of my favorite peoples!!!!!

That caterpillar is the larva for the white marked tussock moth: http://bugguide.net/node/view/521. When the boys and I found one we looked it up and decided it's a very boring moth for such an interested caterpillar to turn into.

Looks like you guys are having a great summer! Love you!!

Sherrie, we always have fun! I crave your presence! :) Love you, friend!

Charlotte, THANKYOU! That does turn into a very dull moth for the way it looks before. Have a great summer with your little men!

Motherbird, come on down! We would love to have you. :)
