Once again, my brave, courageous and generous friend Delia invited us over for a swim- and fixed us lunch to boot!
We got off to a bit of a shaky start with complete cloud coverage and a chilly breeze. But by lunch time that was a memory and the children finally quit shivering.
Oh, and having a built in hot tub definitely helps in those chillier moments.
My favorite shot of the day is an Instagram photo taken with my phone. Avi refused to let me take pictures with my actual camera, so here's the Instagram version (username littleearthling if you want to find me there!) Would you believe this little girl finished off two large hamburgers with all the fixings for lunch?
Tucker (5) came up to me and in his little husky, lispy voice said, "Hey Mom, it's cloudy with a chance of goggles!" What a clever boy. See why I love kids so much?
Mordecai, 8, loved the pool as usual. The fact that he was wearing a floaty suit didn't stop him from diving off the the diving board. Yes, diving. After watching a few of the other kids, he put his arms out, tucked his head, and with perfect form dove off the diving board. Repeatedly. His floatation suit made sure he soon popped to the surface. What a guy!
Apollo loved the pool. In fact he threw a fit when I tried to take him out.
Hezekiah, age 7
Enoch, age 11
And now, a study in little boys.
Hezekiah, age 7
First walk slowly across the diving board and carefully calculate your stragety.
Carefully jump off to avoid injury.
Tucker, age 5
Run across the diving board as fast as you can for maximum speed.
Jump as high as you can!
Ah, I love my little boys.
Thanks again, Delia, for a marvelous time!
