What a WET weekend!!

As has been previously determined, the only way to enjoy being outside in August in Phoenix is to be WET. Thus, a very, very wet weekend. It started on Saturday, with our church doing a, you guessed it, water day!!

Our church rented this humungous water slide that was just a blast. Everyone enjoyed it....

Yes, that is certainly my mom going down it! She did it multiple times, despite the fact that she had blow dried and curled her hair before coming.....don't ask me why.....

Our pastor!!

Jessie...."this is not supposed to be happening"....

It appears my dad was worried about keeping his head on!

Mom, Jessie, and I looking like "drowned rats" (according to Mom)

Dave (on far right) takin' on the water spray!

As usual, from a photographer's standpoint, the best part about these church gatherings is the little kids to take pictures of!! "Cowgirl-in-training"

This is my favorite picture from the entire weekend. Love this little girl and her hat!!

After a very wet Saturday, we got flood irrigation on Sunday, and had all the friends over, hooked up the minis, and surfed the evening away!!

Never knew we were a bunch of surfers, did ya?

I, sadly, didn't get wet because I was working the camera. But I definitely had fun anyways :)

He looks really good while he's in the air, doesn't he?!?!

Mmm...landing not so good.

Lovin' these little girls in their colorful swimsuits!!

I will hopefully be getting some more pictures up on my photography blog (www.atruefocus.blogspot.com) at some point in the near future!

Is everyone else stayin' cool this summer?

    1. That looks like alot of fun! I need to try that mini horse surfing one day.
      God bless,

  2. Awesome pics!! The surfing looks like a lot of fun! Up here in the Pacific Northwest, it's been cool and cloudy but with hints of sunshine, too. :) Perfect weather for getting me all excited for fall (yep, already thinking about fall)!

  3. That was such a blast.... er... splash. :D I had such a ball with those boogie boards, lettin out the inner cabana. ;D I could do that more often.

  4. David's an albatross! Great if airborne... not so great coming down!

    1. Ha! That's a first! I've been called a lot of things in my life, and an Albatross was not one of them!

  5. You guys have more fun than should be considered healthy. :P ;) What an awesome way to spend the day!! :D Looks like y'all had a ball. :D It reminds me of a couple of birthday parties we had last summer... waterbomb fights, mud fights, all ending up in our dirty dam, grey with mud; rotten vegetables flying through the air... Ahh yes. This is the life! :D

  6. Great pictures, Lisa! The whole being wet thing looks like fun...only down here I don't need water to get wet :D All I have to do is go outside! Ya'll look like a bunch of hoots :)

  7. Wow, looks like y'all have been having loads of fun! Yay for being wet! =D
    And what adorable little girls... I know what you mean, Lis, about being able to get all of these sweet little kid shots. =) Just makes ya smile all over ;)
