Black and White Wednesday - "Rub-A-Dub-Dub, Two Cuties in the Tub"

July 13, 2011

The weather has been relentless here, as it is in a good part of the country right now. The heat and humidity is unbearable and we really have not been able to enjoy our evenings outside with the kids.

Sunlight between them 2 BLOG
The girls wanted to go in the baby pool the other night, but between the heat and the bugs, I could not tolerate being out there, so I posed an alternative to them and they were ALL OVER IT!

Head above water Sarah BLOG
Sarah was pretty spoiled before Reagan came along and often got to take a dip in "Mommy's big tub with the motor".

Sarah's little smirk BLOG
She was beyond excited as if that big smirk on her face does not say it all.

Rub a Dub Dub two girls in the tub BLOG
Bubbles were a must according to Sarah and we had to give her LOTS OF THEM.

Reagan in the back standing up BLOG
Reagan was a little overwhelmed at first by the rising bubbles and the flow of the jets. This was her first real swim in Mommy's tub:)

Reagan under the faucet BLOG
I was not so sure she was really digging it in the beginning, but she seemed to be content to play under the faucet as long as I left the water running.

Crazy Little Girl BLOG
Eventually, I had to turn the water off and the jets too. Once they were off, she became as crazy as her sis.....

Looking over the edge at the bubbles on the floor BW BLOG
and that is when the bubbles starting flying EVERYWHERE!

I've had enough, get me out BLOG
She looks like she has gone a couple rounds, but in the end, she won the battle of the bubbles and has now jumped on the bubblebath bandwagon with Sarah!

There is no going back to their regular bathtub now.
It looks like I will be sharing my jacuzzi tub with both of the girls.

As a side note, for those that are interested, these photos were taken at 7pm.
The sun was beaming in the big windows above the tub. I pulled the shades all the way up and let the natural light pour in.

ps we didn't get jets in our tub - but you are making me wish we had! (though I've only used it once in 7 months - the kids have used it scores of times lol!)

Just precious Lisa ... I have the volume turned up on my computer & looking at your pictures seriously brought tears to my eyes!! The excitement is beaming from their eyes & the looks that Reagan is giving is like she is looking right through the camera ... they look like little angels!!

Oh my! Gorgeous as always! The girls will really treasure all these perfect captures of their happy childhood! Since you have so many perfect photos, how do you choose what to print and how to display them? Do you scrapbook? Thanks, Wen

I love these shots Lisa! The light is perfectly shining down on those two cutie pies. I don't blame you one bit for wanting to bring the festivities inside due to heat and bugs. We're pretty much in the same boat weather wise down here. Loads of mosquitoes and humidity beyond belief.

Hope you're having a wonderful week!

xoxo

Sarah said...

I love these. Gorgeous!

Ashley Sisk said...

What a fun idea - we never use our tub (I'm more of a shower gal), but I'll have to remember this for future kiddos.

These bath pictures are absolutely exquisite. I'm serious. I have never seen more beautiful bath pictures. Of course, your two beautiful girls have a lot to do with that, but your talent does too!

This is some serious cuteness...I would love to have a tub with that many bubbles!! I might be able to hide for a while that way. Such great lighting too. Cute, cute, cute!
