We had a few days where it was nice enough to swim while we were visiting Nana and Grampy. The water was a little chilly, but when did that stop kids from splashing around? They had a blast. I'm always curious how well they will be able to swim after a whole winter of not swimming, but they continue to amaze me with their daring and retention.
Bennett is at that age where he loves the pool, but doesn't realize that the floaties are the ONLY reason he doesn't sink. One time he walked through the gate and jumped right into the pool. Luckily we were watching and Casey grabbed him real quick, but even the dunking didn't scare him too much.
There is something HILARIOUS about kids in goggles. They just look so stinkin' cute. Check out Addie totally ready to go in her goggles, floaties, and swim tube. Too bad she never actually got in the water (maybe it would have washed some of that dirt off her face).
What a good Daddy to help Maya get some floaties on...
What a MEAN DAD to push her into the pool!
I remember last year the FAVORITE thing was to slide down the slide bare butt naked (they say it makes you go faster), this year everyone stayed clothed, but the slide was still lots of fun. Isn't Porter GORGEOUS!
I thought Bennett wouldn't swim much because the water was so cold, but he really loved it. He just puttered around with this cute little grin on his face. I love that kid (of course, I love all of them).
They all ganged up on Casey and pushed him into the pool, but the hooligans weren't satisfied with that, they wanted to hunt bigger game. After being told to get out of the pool, they combined their forces, and tossed a completely clothed Grampy into the pool (wasn't Grampy nice to humor them?). I think I was too busy worrying that Grampy's cell phone (which (unbeknown to me) he had taken out of his pocket in preparation for the attack) was ruined to snap any pictures.
Casey, what kind of face is this? Are you doing a sexy Gene Simmons impersonation?
