Flippin' the Flapjacks

I get this song stuck in my head every time I make pancakes.  Now you can too.  You're welcome.

Water Girl

One of the nice things about where we live is that we are right next door to a park with basketball, volleyball and tennis.  And seeing as how we are such an athletic family (ha!) we decided to go play some tennis the other day.

It's quite obvious Matthias got his tennis skills from me.

Kelsi actually managed to hit the ball quite a bit though!  Although she was quite worried that the other people at the courts were laughing at us.  They probably were.  Thankfully I'm pretty sure we didn't ever hit any of them with a runaway tennis ball.  There were quite a few of those.  That's where Lydia came in:

She had so much fun running around chasing tennis balls!

"It's just you and me, Ball.  Just you and me."

Eventually she got tired off running all over the place and decided to become the water girl.

"Here's your water bottle, Mom!"

Daddy's water bottle was a little harder to carry!

She was nice enough to see that her brother was obviously quite parched and brought him his water bottle in the middle of the game. 

Then decided that they no longer needed their water and she might as well drink it for them.  Can't let it go to waste, right?

"Oh, look!  A ball!"

And, of course, being the girly girl that she is, a tea party was in order.

Some more fun pictures for you (because that is the only reason I pretend to have a blog)
