Almost Wordless Wednesday---Water Fun

The cat's out of the bag---Dad is a lot more fun than Mom!

A few weeks ago Bret took Gillian Grace for a walk after dinner while I, the loyal Webb family Sherpa, stayed behind to pack up all our gear.

Imagine my surprise when I caught up with Bonnie and Clyde a short time later and found my once perfectly coiffed daughter looking more like a drowned rat!

Now had the roles been reversed, I would have never encouraged GG's little water fountain exploration and she would've gone home as dry as a politician's humor. But as I'm quickly learning kids and husbands have a mind of their own---and sometimes, the best plan is simply having no plan at all.

Sometimes you've just got to stop and dance around in the rain, or in this case the fountain!

The roles at our house are quite the same! The kids would have also been dry under my watch but soaked under Daddy's :) Cute pics!

Hahaha it's so true! I've discovered that it's good to let my son go off with his Daddy sometimes so he can do 'boy things' like collect sticks (and get clothes all dirty), chase ants, touch stuff... I mean, all the things I would NEVER do because they're just too dirty!!! Did you ask me about the Hermes Birkin? I don't have one YET but I will someday... before I drop off the face of this earth!

How fun! She just keeps getting cuter and cuter!

P.S. As far as the Lilly sale went yesterday, I splurged, but luckily I get an allowance on clothes each month, so what did you think I used for this months, and okay, next month's allowance?? One word: LILLY! :)
