The girls had a blast swimming at Mimi and Pop's, as usual. Maggie, Kate, Sarah, & Ella all really have Kay-Kay and Kelli wrapped around their little fingers because they were both willing to stay in the pool so the girls could keep swimming long after the other adults had bailed... thus allowing me to catch a few photos.
We had a low country boil for dinner at Mimi and Pop's house, and this was the view from the cabana out by the pool. Everyone was shoveling the food in, alright! There's just not anything that I can think of that my dad, or Pop Dickie as the girls call him, can't cook.
And Scott caught these three little turkeys shoveling in the home made vanilla ice cream that Mimi served for dessert. I'm pretty sure uncle Joe was the one who fixed their cups... lots more than Scott or I would have put in there for sure! Thanks Uncle Joe!
Meanwhile, Maggie was outside the fence preparing to water the flowers... or her sisters, which ever she could reach first! She is such a little trouble maker, but very cute while working.
Later, we posed for Dad to take some photos of all us girls in Mimi's flower garden. I think this was picture number 147 for the evening. There is lots of weeding to do when you use a digital camera, and I don't mean in the flower garden.
Kate showed off her love of hats and stole Pop Dickies' to wear for a while. She loves to have her picture taken. I think she actually glows when there is a camera in her vicinity.
So the fact that Daddy was nearby with the camera was reason enough for her to grab my neck and give me a huge squeeze (practically winking at the camera all the while), but I'll take whatever I can get!
My absolute favorite pictures from the night were a couple of what we jokingly refer to as our two sets of twins... no they aren't really twins, but it is becoming more difficult by the day to tell it, especially in the ways they act!
