water fountain fun

we went w/ our friends, the newells, to a little pizza place downtown prattville and then let the kids play in the water fountain after dinner...we had no idea how much fun they were about to have...someone had put soap in it, so they had a BLAST getting wet and getting each other wet w/ all the bubbly water!

after getting wet, it was time for ice cream!

what a fun, fun evening!

look who snuck into the bathroom-and look what he discovered!

weeeeee! fun times!

happy mom's was!

all i asked for was a picnic w/ the fam, so after church we picked up sonic and headed to ole Cooter's Pond. it was a GORGEOUS day, a high of about 70 and it was just perfect!

it was one of those days where everyone was happy-even mr. policeman...he drove by once and waved, then on his way back, he pulled in towards us and turned on his lights! so nice! thank you mister policeman!

here's a view over the water. you can see downtown montgomery way off in the background.

can you see the swelling in eli's face? look at the right side of his nose and just above his top lid. poor baby! he tripped over a book while kevin was chasing him the day before-and the Wii remote in his hand jammed his face; busted his lip on the inside pretty bad and the swelling of his nose even made his breathing thru that nostril sound not quite right...we were wondering if he'd broken his nose! but monday a.m. the swelling had gone down a ton and now it's just bad bruising; poor guy!

all ethan wanted was his juice in the big boy cup and straw!

what a beautiful park. what a beautiful day. what a beautiful family. i am blessed! thank you Jesus for these little 'gifts You've allowed me to call 'my children!'

pretty myah. and look! she even took her socks off-so unusual for that sock-lovin-must-always-have-some-on-girl!

great magnolia tree in the background, even greater kids in the foreground!

The Gordon Guys

i am happy!

i love you guys!

wrapping up april

boy hair is always fun with sunscreen in it!

can you tell it's time to leave the park? least for ethan!

pretty in pink-and always picking flowers!

gramma betty, loving on her ethan-boy

this makes me laugh out loud just looking at it!

sometimes you just choose your battles; altho this one was pretty easy.

gramma patsy pitches, eli swings and it's a home run, folks!

i just love this stage!

now able to 'ride' (somewhat) w/ the big kids!

oh gramma patsy, let me help you with that!

grandpa harold and eli-talking about their day...

Lord Jesus, please let this be the only time these boys are behind bars! :)

eli 'tied' ethan up (he loved it) and they danced as they walked to the song playing on the jump rope handle.

awwww, cute!

myah takes her creativity to the driveway...

'nother cute one...

my driver for the day

sportsman eli, before his haircut...

this is where your belly button is, little bro...

lemme see those yummy cheeks, ethan!

um...think baseball may be a little too soon yet...

feeling victorious!

the day the kids discovered the sprinklers...

it was pretty chilly, but they didn't care AT ALL!

this morning started out w/ them helping me take out the trash...then the sprinklers came on...

the biggest and the smallest, sharing a 'nana.
