lizards and primary parties

i found this little stinker in my house last week, i wish i could say that he was the only one but we seem to have an infestation of them right now. it's a long story how it all came about but as of now i have removed 7 lizard from my house of all shapes and sizes, this little guy was the smallest i think. they really are kinda cute...I JUST DON'T WANT FREELOADERS!

here are my two little brown girls. they have gotten so dark this summer. this pic. was taken after a really fun primary party in the greenbelt in the neighborhood next to us. so HOT but so much fun.

this is jenna with her friend london. when we first moved here there were a couple of girls who would duke it out over who got to sit by jenna during primary and london was one of them. every sunday after sacrament meeting they run to find each other and hold hands while they walk to primary. i love how much they want to be together......even though in this picture london doesn't look too thrilled. hahahahah!

Tatum's favorite part was spraying the other kids with the hose. i think she may have gotten herself more wet than she got them. :)

i don't think tristan knew that a slip n slide with a shirt on doesn't go as fast as skin. i love this picture, there's something hysterical about the way his legs have flipped up so high.

he did get to the bottom. all of the kids loved this part the best and my favorite part was that the soap that helped them down the slide also gave them a bath so they didn't shower that night. really, i don't think they've showered much this summer, they're just in the water ALL THE TIME! i KNOW soap is important too so i don't want anyone giving me a hard time. :) hahahaha

it is so nice to see something new on your blog. what a fun activity, was it our ward primary? it would have been fun to be there, but i can't say that i would have hung out in the heat for very long. that little lizard is so cute, ok maybe not so cute inside, but still little and cute non the less.

Yes I do love the pic of Tristan, what a goof... You were so nice to hold the lizard. I can't say I would do the same, little urchins make me nervous!

Did you keep one of them for a pet? that would have been fun!

Better lizards than scorpions or snakes right? :) What exactly was that enormous slip and slide? Only in AZ do they exist, or is it homemade? Glad you don't have brushing teeth with razor post first anymore. :)

That looks like so much fun! If there were any hills in Louisiana I might try it!
