A couple of years ago, Jordan wanted to have a field day with his cousins, which has started a wonderful tradition. This was the Third Annual Russie Field Day. Cousins, aunts, uncles, brothers, sisters, and Grandma were in attendance. There were some non-water races and then water joined the fun. It was super hot out, so the water was a welcomed addition. J4 and I played spectators, since he was too young and someone had to keep him from falling face-first into the pool (again). He didn’t seem to mind too much since he received his own little J4-safe pool and he got to eat lunch in his pool! There were also some side sand-games, played by Sam and Tyler before they joined in the water games. These games were cake making and hole digging. One one the funnest games to watch was a summer spin on Duck, Duck, Gray Duck. It goes Drip, Drip, Dump and involves dripping and pouring water and chasing. It was hilarious to watch! Field Day always concludes with snacks, and this year there was also grilled pizza!
I have been so busy with life that I’ve not had time to edit all the photos I’ve taken, much less post them here! In the past two weeks, I’ve gotten a job (!), spent every moment awake with visiting family, parties, an ArtFest, and days at the beach with friends. Here are a couple of pictures of the cuteness which has taken up my time.
And thus a promise of more to come as I get time to edit and post. 😉
And there was Sam. Who’s team won the championship game 20-9. Woot!
