It was a Swimming Saturday

A groovy swimming Saturday - I just thought I should sound surfy...anyway, the pool at Steven's folks has officially been open for a couple of weeks now, but either its been busy, coolish, wet or inconvenient to hit it so far, well not anymore.

The whole family "dove" into it on Saturday and we had fun. Enjoy some pictures...

The "sun" bather - as much as a girl can in the shade and with a big floppy swim hat anyway -


At this point she is thinking what a ridiculous set up, that this swimming idea was for the birds. She really got into this lounging thing and almost went to sleep out there. She was so relaxed.
















I picked her up and started to tell her a good story, I explained that swimming is really a great way to spend an afternoon and that she should try it - I think she came around to my way of thinking.


Here are the swimmers - Isaiah loves the water - he and daddy like to play bumper cars with the floaties, Huston is our more cautious water guy but really has gotten a lot more comfortable in grandma's pool. Avery - well he is our dare devil on land and at sea (he and dad especially make a dynamite pair)...



Don't you love this pic of daddy in the frog floaty? And Avery had to come and give mommy kisses every once in awhile - and no I didn't mind that.















Yep, Lillie enjoyed the water a bit after she got used to the noise and splashing around her (and the temperature) She stayed in for a good 20 minutes or so, and then grandma swept her away to change into some dry clothes and her more stylish sun hat...

We all had a good time, but when the whole family was in there, I realized that it won't be long until we will need a bigger pool!
