Today we took the kids swimming.  Cali's cousin in law is visiting with her 5 sons so we thought we would take all of our kids out to use up some of their energy. 
Oli and Jack...Yes I know that Oliver has floaties and a life jacket on.  But hey, our kids don't get to swim very often...and he is my cautious child.  He doesn't want to drown. 
Rob is so dang cute when he is swimming.  Most of the other kids have complaints like "this is boring" or "I'm cold" but not Rob he could swim all day.  

He went down this slide 100 times and everytime he would close his eyes like this so he wouldn't get any water in his eyes.  He kept coming up to me and drying his face on my stomach.  This time swimming I gave the boy a little dignity with shorts over his swimming unitard.  I know he will appreciate that someday when he sees the pictures as a teenager.

On the way home we stopped for sonic's happy hour.  50 cent slushies is where it is at...I am telling you.  The kids thought it was awesome that they got to pick their own flavor. 

oh and it did help to use up some of their energy...Rob was asleep in bed by 6:50 p.m.  Hallelujah!

Rob looks like a young Sinead O'Connor in that picture.

I love happy hour at Sonic. We don't live super close to one. But sometimes I will still drive out there just to take advantage of the cheap drinks.

Oh how I wish my kids would go to sleep before 7! Lucky!!! Looks like you had a good time! I didn't know about Sonic's 50 cent slushies. I will have to try that sometime!
