Summer Fun


The boys and I went swimming at my parents house Thrusday and Friday. This was the first we've been so far this summer. Now the older I get the less I seem to be interested in swimming myself. I had every intention of just sitting on the deck, taking pictures and enjoying the sun. After all four boys and my parents...... for lack of a better term....pestering me about getting in the pool...(not to mention my dad threating to throw me in anyway) I decided to bite to bullet and just do it. The water wasn't cold at all, which was a relief to this big baby and I actually had a pretty good time.

Before I was guilted into getting into the pool on Thrusday I took these pictures.


Steven is quite the swimmer these days. I believe he is under water more than hes on top of it. I did get lucky enough to get these two shots of him while he was up for some air. Don't ya just love the goggles?? Shhh, don't tell him I posted these of him...heehee












Charlie can't swim just yet so he started the day off with some water wings.





As the day went on he started to get more comfortable in the water and braver so off came the wings...but he grabbed a water noodle...



Niether Rex nor Lathan can swim yet either, but Rex has always loved the water. He's the hardest one to get out of it. He's a happy little man just floating around.





Now Lathan is a different story when it comes to the water. He's still not too sure if he likes being in the pool. He was in and out most of the day Friday.








Then he took over Granny's float and was a happy little man himself. He loves being in the pool....just not in the water. Note Rex still floating along....




























Rex saw how much fun Lathan was having on Granny's float, or maybe his little legs were getting tired..either way he hopped on the float with Lathan for a bit.






Then out came the water guns...





Here's a couple pics of my mom and dad enjoying the pool.











Then it was time to eat....my dad grilled some burgers and hot dogs. MMMmmm. I like mine almost burnt please...




Rex & Charlie.....

Boy were we tired when we got home.
They were up early Friday Morning to go back to Granny and Papaw's.
We stopped off at Wal-Mart on the way to pick up a float for Lathan. Here Steven is trying to blow it up until Papaw said he'd use the air compresser...

Charlie, Rex, Lathan & Papaw taking a ride before we got in the pool.


Lathan likes his new float.


What a grin..Happy water baby now.


So that was our two days of swimming. We plan to go back next week. I sure hope the water is still warm..heehee

Until then Its time to finish up Lathan's Birthday prep for Tomorrow. Happy 4th birthday Lathan.
