Jumping on Big Balls

We had a busy day Saturday.

It was my turn to sleep in because I got up with Kota around 4am because she wanted a bottle (this is becoming more and more rare, thank goodness!). She wasn’t up too long, but since I got up then, Tony got up with her and Harper that morning. When I came downstairs, this caught my eye:

Not too sure what was going on, but Harper had every single serving utensil we owned out on that table.

Zoe got up and got busy looking for a job. She’s finding that it isn’t easy but she keeps at it. I’m really hoping something comes along soon.

I picked up two hanging baskets of Vining Mandevilla at Lowes. I think they’re just gorgeous…I just hope they’ll live out on my deck.

When Zoe and Landon were little, Mema used to pull these huge balls out and hold it between her knees while also holding their hands so that they could jump. Lucky for Harper he’s got an older sister willing to do the same thing for him! (Mema would’ve done it, but she was busy making dinner.)

Of course Landon wanted to give it a try. He’s just silly like that.

Since Koko is too little for the balls, we just took a picture of her sitting in front of the azaleas. They sure are pretty when they bloom! Too bad I couldn’t get Dakota to cooperate.

Harper asked if we could sit him up in the tree again. Last time we did, he cried the whole time but I guess he was feeling brave this week.

Once I got a picture of him, I told the other kids to come climb up so that I could get a picture of them all in the tree. Well, that was much easier said than done.

Zoe couldn’t get up in that tree to save her life. Brandon and Tony both tried to help but every time they touched her she’d scream in terror thinking she was about to fall to her death. It was pretty funny to watch.

It took Landon a bit of trial and error before he finally got up there, but as you can see, he did finally do it. Tony just jumps up in trees like he was made to do it. They’ll be struggling and he’ll be at the top looking at them all like they’re idiots..

Zoe was finally able to manage getting herself up this far. Hahaha!

After what seemed like forever, all three were able to make it up there. You see that Landon got brave after his initial struggle! Zoe’s sitting there looking brave but I know her insides were like jelly she was so scared of falling 2 feet to the ground. Brandon didn’t have shoes on so it was killing him to climb up and down, but he’s a sport.

After all the fun we had in the tree, it was time to eat dinner. Harper finished early and decided to play with Kota a bit:

Water Balloons

When my kids told me they didn't know what to do with themselves yesterday I suggested they go outside and play with the water balloons....
