Time at the park.....

Just wanted to post some pictures of the girls enjoying themselves before it gets too hot to go outside. AAAHHH....can't wait until it's 105 degrees at 10 PM.
Ryan Golfing.
Reagan laughing.
My girls. Funny story: Ryan, Reagan, and I went to watch Chris play softball last Tuesday night. After playing at the park for awhile we went back to watch the end of the game. Ryan, by then, was not listening to me and I found myself yelling her name over and over and louder and louder. I was getting frustrated with the fact that she was completely ignoring me. So on the way home, I decided it was a perfect teaching opportunity for Ryan. I told her why it is important for her to listen when I call to her, because I want her to be safe. I then decided we should role play. I was the "mommy" and she was "ryan.
Ryan: Mom, can I go sit on the benches?
Me: Well, wait for me and Reagan and we'll go together.
Ryan: Ok mom.
Then Ryan wanted to switch roles. "You be Ryan and I'll be the mommy!!", she said.
Me: Mommy, mommy....I want to go sit on the benches all by myself!:
Ryan: Sure, go ahead.
I laughed all the way home.....so much for a teaching opportunity.
