FFF-Black and White photos....

This Friday's theme is black and white photos, which I really like. I haven't had a chance to go through recent pictures to pick good ones to change, so these are from days gone by. (Except for a few)

Pool Party 2008...

Chloe, Hannah, Jordin and Dillon waiting for the guests.
Fun in the pool.

Trampoline time.
Dillon looking like he might be missing something.
What a crew!
Dillon and "his girls".

Dillon sharing his juice box.

The girls drawing on themselves (and each other) with special crayons.

Water balloons :)

The girls had their second annual pool party today. There were 14 kids total. A few less than last year. There was swimming, face painting, trampoline jumping, ladder golf and watermelon (plus other great snacks). Dillon was the youngest and Chloe was the oldest. Most of the kids were friends of Chloe's and their younger siblings. A great time was had by all. We want to give Meme and Papa Jackson a big "THANKS". One, for allowing us use of the pool and two, for all of the hard (yard) work you did for us.
****Keep in mind that face paint isn't permanent. So some of the kids look bruised. That would be the combination of face paint and swimming.

Monday afternoon fun.....

On Monday afternoon we loaded up and headed off to a super playground, about 35 minutes away. Gramie and Grampie Hanks joined us. After playing for awhile, we went to Friendly's for dinner. I think Gramie and Grampie were surprised at how loud three kids in a minivan can be.

Saturday afternoon....

Three stooges

Dillon wearing Hannah's bike helmet.

Dillon having a fit because Hannah needed her helmet back.
The supervisor :)

Dillon playing with some pebbles.
Dillon trying to decide if he should try to get on Hannah's bike. He knew better!
Loading his cup in his truck.
Who knows what they were doing.

"I'm pretty sure I can rip all of these sparkly things off". (Just like Hannah did to the other side when it was Chloe's bike :)

Saturday afternoon we took the kids down the road to the "farm house" which happens to have a tennis court. Darr's father grew up in this house on a large farm. The farm is still owned by the family. Anyway, the kids love riding their bikes and scooters on it. (Nobody has played tennis in a while). Dillon of course was dripping in sweat because he spent a lot of time running up and down with his truck.
Thanks again to Rays Supply for fixing the settings on my camera again. I expect to be barred from the store soon!!!! I do promise to buy my next camera there however.
