Is this how it starts?

Dear Michael,

We said goodbye to Michelle and the girls yesterday morning. I think we always need to take friends on vacation. They had such fun together. And it certainly kept down the usual arguing. Whining. Gnashing of teeth. Because the moment the friends left, boredom descended upon us. They just wanted to watch tv. Argue. Whine. And they even had the nerve to complain.

And then. Madalyn had a ureka moment. She said that what would make her happy. Make her life complete. Put a twinkle in her eye would be to jump in the pool in her pajamas. Yes, in her pajamas.

I really didn't think it would be a big deal. And if it would pull her out of the grumpies...why not?

So...down to the pool we went. And in she jumped. Hannah Montana nightgown and all.

She declared it the most fun. Evah.

Katie did not want to be left out of this festivale of "most fun evah," so she jumped, too.

(See how her cannonball is improving?)

And then they did it again.

And together.And then I had to put the camera away. The pajamas were confining. Because apparently your daughters are exhibitionists. Or nudists. Or something. And they loudly declared - to everyone who might innocently be walking by - how free their boobies now felt. (Were you aware that they were shackeled before?) And I just can't repeat what they said about their nether regions. Loudly. Because your girls don't know how to whisper.

I think I was just the vessel. Because my girls wouldn't do such a thing. Or revel in it. Stop laughing.

Wish you were here!

Love,

I thought the swimming in clothes was most fun when you pushed the clothed person in! hahaha Skinny dippin' huh? Fun stuff. (PS- good idea to blame these embarrassing and funny traits on the husband :)

Lula! said...

I loooooooooooooooooove nekkid chillens'. And they are so correct in their assessment...boobs are indeed free-feeling while skinny dipping.

Your girls ROCK. Yes, they do.

Beckynsc said...

Michael, you really should teach YOUR girls to be a little more discrete. tee hee
They looked as if they were having enough fun for us all!

That 9th shot is so funny. The way you've caught her in mid air and the look on her face. It cracks me up looking at it.

As ever, great photos.

The reat of the post cracked me up as well. :-)

Megan said...

One of the funniest posts I have read in a while! :) Your girls are too funny!

Mama's Losin' It said...

Oh my gosh what great pictures!!! What an awesome Mom to let them do that. They do look so happy and carefree!!

Firefly mom said...

Oh, that's just too funny! Boy, if they think their boobies spend their days confined now, just wait until they're wearing underwire bras!

-Bridget said...

You have some briliant girls!

Rhea said...

Oh my gosh, how funny! Those pictures of them jumping are fantabulous! The expressions!!

I can't believe I missed this post somehow. What music did you have playing with it? (Because it's birthday music now for the current post).

Your little nudists. I love it. Their boobies were free. Hilarious. Your girls are way too funny.

Lauren Horsley said...

What you're leaving out is the part after you put the camera down, where you jump in with them!

Look, if I had the chance to free my boobies there is NO WAY I would pass that up!

Madeline said...

Awesome! We have a pool and my boys and husband are often to be found skinny dipping in it at twilight! We have very old neighbors and a grape vine hiding us from the street, for the most part!

Nissa said...

I want to just jump in with them!!!

(Love the 'boobies feel free'- that's hilarious!)
