Wordless Wednesday~ Soccer & grape soda... oh my


Note: Do I usually give my crazy little monkey soda... 
Heck NO!
This was a special day at the park though... we hit 80 degrees, & I had one thirsty kiddo... he went though one sippy cup full of  apple juice, & mama's bottle of water... 
AND finally( he met sweet victory)made it to my grape soda.

At least it was diet & caffeine free.

Plus he sat still long enough to enjoy his new favorite drink.
Which = some pretty darn cute pics!

Ohhh yah... & before the non-caffeinated sugar high...
there was soccer...

Wow!! I just love all these shots! He is so cute...and looks so serious about his soccer! My son (22) will play his last season of college soccer this fall...sigh...so these bring me back to those early days with the soccer ball. And he's such the little dude for having scored the soda!!

Darling shots. Take it from this old bag...er saged wise one. Don't make food/drink items unattainable. A little bit once in awhile makes it fun, not making them want it more and more by never having it!

Ha! I hear trying to get little kids his age to play soccer is like herding sheep! Shasta soda is the shiz though, I used to love it. Haven't seen it in forever! Thanks for the nostalgia. Great shots!

Thanks for the disclaimer. I totally would have thought you just pumped him with soda all day. . . bwahaha! I kid.

Heidi said...

I love these Mama! Your processing is just wonderful! So glad you link up every week, Jax always makes me smile!

That first photo of Jax with the soda is ridiculous- I absolutely love it.

Loving the B&W's. it's hard to pick a fav, but I think the one I really like best is the one with the ball in the foreground, but then, the one that focuses just on his legs and the ball....but then..... Really great shots.
