Swimming Pool Fools

Blake and the kids have logged more pool hours than anyone in the history of our neighborhood. I'm sure of it.

Take a look at this short video of Lainey being launched in the air. This was taken about a month ago, so this trick and all swimming is done sans life jackets now.

(as always, ignore my shrieking......I had not seen this trick before and was shocked!)

More fun.....



Short break for makeup. Got to look good at the pool.

Diving.

Our handsome big boy.

Pool food.



Jack is swimming like mad now, but before preferred simple water play on the side of the pool.

And, also drinking water from Crocs. That looks healthy.

Meow Meow always joins us.


Off to work the Midwest Kids Fest this weekend. Have a great day!

Love that pic of Carter wrapped up in a towel. Such a handsome guy! Hope he's enjoying 4th grade.

LC and Jack are doing great at the pool. Isn't it funny how it just clicks?!

Hope you're having a great weekend!

We have been swimming pool fools at our house too! Cute pictures! Hope you have a great weekend!

P.S. Meow Meow is one pampered pet!

love the video!! We haven't been to our hood pool one time this summer but I think it's b/c we're always at the lake. Just got back from there today.

I squealed like you did when Blake tossed her like a doll! She's one brave little thing! Love when you zoom on her and Blake and she asks, "Did you see me, Mom?!"
I love that you take pictures of Jack drinking from his Croc. I won't let Lainy put a silly band in her mouth without gagging. You're my hero.
Carter is a hunk. It's killing me.

Cute video! It is so nice once they swim well! Good thing Blake has put his time off from work to good use!

OH my goodness, Lainey Lou!!! I love that video. What a dare-devil she is. Hilarious that Blake asks if she wants to do it again and she says, No. She'd had enough...showed off for Mom and all was good.

Great pic of Carter!! So grown up. And Jack drinking water out of his crocs?? Love that boy!

That video was great! I would have been screaming if it was my kid too!

Momma to the A's said...

WOW! Your little punkins have come a long way in the pool this summer! That is so exciting!

Great pictures of the kids at the pool. Makes me wish we were able to go to an outside pool!

Have a great week and good luck with the packing!

I am glad Lainey has her priorities in order.

That flip was impressive! And, the close-up of Carter needs to go in a frame. What a GREAT picture!
