My non-Arizonan friends may find this strange, but we take pictures when it rains here. It's a novelty, and we definitely appreciate it!
I was *this* close to washing my filthy car on Saturday, and I'm glad my laziness prevented me from doing it. A nice downpour started on our way home from the store this afternoon, so I left the car outside for a shower, and the kids and I hung around in the garage for a little bit.
Robbie thought it was great! Most of his experiences with puddles are from splash parks, so he was perfectly happy to squat by the gutter and poke the little raindrop rings.
My legs would fall off if I tried to squat like that.

We went to Chick-Fil-A today and saw a sign that said you can get three free chicken strips on Labor Day (from 10:30 to closing) if you wear any kind of pro or college football clothes.
This was at the Dysart & McDowell location, but I looked around online and it sounds like it's a corporate-wide promotion. So wear your Sun Devils stuff & go get free food that day!
**Editor's Note: If you wear U of A Wildcats stuff, you're entitled to a free kick in the pants**

Erin doesn't really like posing for pictures lately, and I think it's some kind of karmic payback for the collection of horrifying photos I provided my parents with when I was young. I'm sure my mom cringed every time the school photo packet came home! These were the photos she had to give to friends & family.

The kids and I spent most of Saturday swimming at my parents' house. Poor Rob was umpiring softball tournaments out in the heat all day long while we were lounging in the pool.

After the driveway cooled down tonight, the kids got to draw all over it with chalk. Robbie had more fun rolling the chalk down the driveway, but Erin had a pretty good time drawing.
I found some balloons earlier & filled them up with water, so after the chalk we went in the back yard to throw water balloons. As you can see, this wasn't Robbie's favorite activity!
Poor thing cried when his water balloon popped! He thought it was funny when Erin would throw one, but it was a different story when he dropped his. He was so sad.
To end the night on a happy note, we chased the lizards around in the back yard for a while. Yesterday I found one that was molting & it was pretty gross. I had to show Erin, and of course I left the door open while we looked at it. It jumped out of my hands & scurried off somewhere. Later on, Erin found it on the blinds in our living room! This lizard with nasty peeling skin had been wandering around in our house. I caught it again, put it outside, and SHUT the door. Then I washed the disgusting lizard dandruff off my hands. Bleh!
