On my way home from picking up the kids from school, I noticed some "T-Storm" activity just south of our house! I knew we only had a few minutes until we would be engulfed in the storm so I grabbed my camera so that I could snap a few shots of the beautiful cumulonimbus clouds that were quickly surrounding our neighborhood. I know our Monsoon storms are growing to an end, so I let the kids hang out in the craziness that was about to begin. All these pictures were taken within about a 20 minute time period. Dad...I knew you might appreciate these!
They're better when you can flip through them fast, anyway...within a couple of minutes the downdrafts caught up with us and we had some pretty hefty gusts of wind! Boston was holding an airplane...you can't tell but the propellers on this thing were flying! Unfortunately, the camera makes them seem entirely still!?
Yes, that's my child wearing a shirt, diaper, and mix matched shoes! I couldn't find her shorts before we left to go pick up the kids...so I took her like that. She found shoes, because she's already learned you don't go outside without shoes on unless you want your feet to melt! Smart kid! No one was driving by, so we were good!
I took this picture of the down pour through my doorway of the sun illuminating all the rain drops! It looks like it was snowing! My kids had so much fun! The rain only lasted about 5 minutes or so, but the kids had a blast getting wet without being cold!

Madison wanted to bowl so bad! So we let her hold one...with a little help...
Then we showed her how to push the ball, she couldn't stand the thought of it leaving though...
But she couldn't resist watching to see it's fate! It was so funny! She was very nervous watching it slowly roll down the very long lane! She probably had a full minute to minute and a half of watching this thing roll! We didn't think about what we were doing at the time, but we bowled 8 people on each lane, one for the kids, one for the adults...okay talk about the longest game in history! It took us 2 hours to finish both the games! Atleast we had fun! After the pizza and bowling, we threw in a cupcake cake for good measure! Wow, talk about mouth staining entertainment! That frosting was way yummy, but super dangerous! We had fun taking pictures of everyone eating their neat cupcakes! We're so excited we went, and we'll have to plan a bowling date night soon! Keep your calendars open! It's been years since we've bowled and I have to say...it was really fun!
This one is of my friends Sandy (her son Ryan), Kim and I. Holly was there too, but left earlier and missed out on the photo op! We'll catch up with her later!

Then she starts to head a little left... Oh...and she doesn't recover from this one! See the lean gets her everytime!
Big sister Madison was to the rescue!
We had a few spare moments and Seattle was in "prime" picture form! She hadn't drooled or spit up on her new outfit...yet, so I thought I'd get a few shots of her sitting by the couch.
Of course Madison had to get in the photo shoot too and found a flower that she had to have in her hair. (This might be Sky's?) Oh yeah and that headband is her "princess" headband. You might not be able to see, but it has small jewels inside of it, so of course she was wearing it! She looks pretty sweet. We know Madison needs to get rid of her "Passy" but we're letting them each just get "lost" one by one. This is her last one...we think. She's getting pretty good at finding them in her moments of "need". The nice thing is that she won't steal Seattle's because it's a different type that for some reason grosses her out beyond all reason! We don't know why. We've seen her fall asleep a couple of times and feel around for a "passy" by her and she'll grab Seattle's by mistake, take a half suck, and then gag and spit it out, all with her eyes closed! It's so silly!
For some reason the flash didn't go off on this one...so it's all grainy! It would have been way cute...oh well you get the idea!
Yeah, Yeah...I know..."SHE LOOKS JUST LIKE PHIL!" Good thing he's hot, because otherwise that could really pose a problem for her!
