It also helps to have a husband who's a great sport:
his eyes were super red that night... wonder why...
(Valerie, your girls are having a terrible time...)
Marilou? The water fight was a bit too intense for the babies, so they ate frozen blueberries and frozen mangoes to help beat the heat (not pictured: a purple-stained Andrew).
Isn't Peter a great multitasker? Having a water fight while protecting his beer!
I think everyone would've loved it had Peter been able to stay home with us the whole week! The kids, obviously (because he's WAY more fun than me!), and me (because, let's face it, sic kids are a lot of work and, well, because he's way more fun than me!).
