Hailey picked out her own special outfit to help Jona celebrate Father's Day. Ain't she somethin'? "But mooooom, there's pink here and here (skirt and small flower on shirt), purple here and here (shirt and small flower on skirt), and blue here and here (socks and stitching on skirt)." She really does have so much in common with her daddy.
Happy Father's Day Jona- we are so lucky to have you!
Happy Father's Day Daddy/Grampy- wish we were there to give you big hugs and bake you something chocolate!
Happy Father's Day Tony/Papa- so glad Jona and the kids got to spend some fun time with you, so sorry about the plague!

Splish Splash

Splash pad season is upon us once again in Arizona. Daily temperatures are reaching the 100's with a couple of oh-so-enjoyable 110's this past week. And while the "dry heat" has nothing on Miami's steam bath, 100 degrees is hot no matter how you slice it. So Phoenix hits the splash pads. Located in most parks, sprinklers and fountains and puddles keep kids happy and parents happier.

Parker and Hailey always start off unsure. Which is strange for Hailey the daredevil water lover, but not for my cautious little guy.

And then she remembers that every kid enjoys a good water enema.

Man my boys are cute!

"Hailey, smile for a picture!" Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover model, no doubt!

Standing on the sprinklers is always a most entertaining pursuit. Yep, the water does indeed keep coming out, over and over and over again.

Parker's hair has taken on a life of its own. Especially when air dried by the wind. Crazy haired man and I love it!

She is a dancing queen!

Hailey took a dance class this past semester on the ASU campus. It was called a Ballet class, but I'm not sure how much ballet they actually learned. She loved it- surprise surprise- and leared all kinds of new moves! Hailey is the blonde in the light blue leotard. Her BFF Zoe is the brunette in the purple leotard...these girls really are entirely too cute.
