Orphaned children

I feel like I'm the only one in the world with children who look like this almost everyday. We start off the day so well, everyone clean for at least the first 5 minutes that they are awake.
Here's Paul showing me a watermelon from the garden...notice my clean children.
Then we head outside and hang out for a bit... Lily is still clean.
Then we break out the frozen gogurts and the mess begins.
and once the babies hit daddy's garage it's all over...
Their feet are usually the first to go.
and this is what they look like when they come inside. Seriously people...this happens on a very frequent basis.
a bath is a must after just a half hour outside. poor orphaned babies.

LOL I feel you on the "orphaned" babies look! I have a 3 year old and 17 month old twin boys. They get bath before bed time, so they go to bed clean, wake up clean....and that's about as far as it gets! I have to scrub'em down after breakfast, and lunch, and if we go outside? That's it. They find the mud, the sand, the name it! So a bath is ALWAYS a must at the end of the day LOL.

You have some adorable kiddos!

They are still adorable and I am so JEALOUS of your watermelon! I guess you have to have more than 1/2 ounce of sunshine to grow those!
