First Trip to the Pool

We spent the afternoon at the pool today, enjoying the 88 degree weather - all 5 of us went, so as to give me an idea of what I'm getting myself into this summer, taking 3 children 4 and under to the pool!!!!! The baby pool is awesome - it is a zero entry pool that has fountains and bubbles - the "deep" part is 1 ft. 6 in - which is deep enough for the "older" children to enjoy jumping in and swimming around.








I think I'll be okay, as long as I don't need to go potty - then comes the arduous task of hauling 3 children into a wet bathroom - and then what do you do with them? The good news is, 98% of the time my SIL and MIL will be with me - I hope!!!!













We started off the day at the "Big" pool, which is a lazy river and a "platform" of 2 inches of water that the children like to jump off. It was fun, simply because Will was in the water with them, while I sunbathed on the platform. When I'm by myself .... well, we shall see.
I can see it being fun come July when it's 98 degrees outside and you can't do anything but stay immersed in the water!






































































































































These little swim shirts are great to keep the sun off of them, but my children FREEZE when they get out of the water and are still wet!!!! Again, maybe in July they will be better!


I do believe it's time to rest our eyes!

I can't believe how brave the baby is in that one picture of him jumping in!! Good grief! You are in trouble! I so remember those days of three little ones at the pool. Exhausting, happy times!!
