Summer Fun!

Like I mentioned in my last post, my kids have been having a blast having their cousins here.....and it's been nice because they've all been keeping themselves entertained.  Their days consist pretty much being outside all day....running around, screaming, playing, fighting.....and jumping on the trampoline.

I called my little sister Leka to come spend the weekend with me this past weekend.....we love it when she comes over!  Especially Ma and Tea because she just sits with them for hours and hours talking and reminissing about Tonga.  She loves all the Tongan food we eat and the kids just love her.....and I mean all the kids, even Kina and Tina's kids.  I always call her whenever theres a rugby tournament going on because she enjoys going with me (since she actually understands the game) and she's a huge help with watching the kids while I'm taking pictures of the game.

My mom had the day off work so she brought Leka up and spent a few hours here.  I was sitting in the front yard watching Ova and Kina do yard work and I heard all the kids screaming and laughing.....so I headed to the backyard and this is what I saw......

My mom actually got on the trampoline and was jumping with the kids......and they were loving it!  That lasted for a little bit and then my mom had to leave.....but the kids still wanted to jump so since it was hot, we put the sprinkler under the trampoline.......this was one of my favorite things to do when I was younger.....jumping on the tramp with the sprinklers!  So much fun!

Then after a little while of jumping with the sprinkler under the tramp, Ova finished up his yard work and decided it would be fun to take the sprinkler out from under the tramp and spray the kids.......like right in the face.....they didn't like that too much.....hahaha......such a punk!

Fun summer day spent outside.....and these two poor kids had to kick it with me on the patio just watching all the fun because they were sick......so sad!




So fun! We did that as kids too, jumped on the tramp with the sprinkler underneath! :) Your mom is too cute haha
