Footloose and Fancy Free



There's no time to worry about...
Mt. Laundry.
Tracking wet feet through the house.
Good hair days.


Running errands.
Preparing dinner.


School checklist.
Did I shave my legs?
How do my toes look?


Weeds in the yard.
Vacuuming.
Water bill.


Birthday party preparations.
Is it going to rain?
Staying healthy.


Fashion statements.
How do I look in this swimsuit?
Mosquitoes.


Nah...
Our only worry was running out of ammunition.


and chillaxin'!


See this innocent face??

Shortly after I went inside, they called for me.
"Moooooom!"
"Yes, my sweet girls?"


"Rrrrrroooooooaaaaaarrrrrr!!"
They thought they were something.
Shooting me with water.
Through the door.
Silly girls.

When they least expected it,
I ran outside with a loud,
"RRRRrrrrrrrooooooooaaaaaaarrrrrrr!!"
of my own.
Yep.  I'm a cool mom.


{and shadows sometimes make you look bigger... and large, white, fluffy robes do too.  just sayin'.}

We love carefree days like these.


Filled with water-guns.
And hopscotch.

What do your spontaneous, care-free days look like?

  3. That looks like lots of fun. I like to run outside and squirt shaving cream on the kids. They never see it coming. I can't wait to do it again this summer.

  4. This looks like such a fun day. I love the pictures....the light and color and all the angles and of course all the smiles.

    Carefree days definitely involve barefeet and sunshine!
