hanging pool-side

25 Jun

At last…the pool is crystal clear. It took two months to get the in-laws pool swim-able. It seemed the day would not come when we could actually swim in it, but after a new pump and filter system, Houston we have a go! So that is where we spent this hot sunny Saturday.

Last summer Isaac discovered that the pool jets doubled as massagers. This is what he had to say about them today:

“Mommy, remember last summer when I thought those bubbles felt good on my privates? Well that is what I am doing right now”. He then gave me the thumbs-up.  Lovely. Thankfully we supplied him with fun new pool toys, so he did not spend ALL day with his bubble “friends”.

Does summer get any better than this?

Lucy even swam – (we left the other one Izzy at home, she does not like the pool)

Another day down – only three more days until we head east! Maybe I will bake something tomorrow, or maybe we will just spend all day swimming.

      Thank you, that he is…lol. The photos were taken with my phone, and an app called Retro Camera. Maybe I will wake up early and bake something to take to the pool 🙂

    I can’t wait to hear about your trip East. Cute dog! Oh and I don’t believe that pool is all it’s cracked up to be. Perhaps you need a house sitter when you’re gone?

    Sure, come on up, I will pay you in crab cakes. 🙂 (but keep in mind the top photo is just the shallow end, its twice that size. You may want to charge double on the crab cakes)

    How amazing you’re outside swimming.
    You’re anecdote on the “bubbles” made me laugh a lot… HEHE
