Memorial Day Weekend at the Pool

This past Saturday, Memorial Day weekend, the pool that we are members at, opened. Needless to say, the kids were chomping at the bit to go for the first swim of the season. It is usually always pretty cold the first few weeks and this weekend was no exception. The water was frigid. Didn't stop my two though. I didn't even wear my bathing suit. I knew there was NO WAY I was getting in that water. Short of a kid drowning, it just wasn't going to happen for me. I watched kid after kid jump in and swim, then get out literally turning blue. No thanks. My two were right there with the rest of 'em. Here are some photos from their first dip in the pool. As for me... I will wait until the water reaches at least 78 degree before I even dare a swim.

Harrison getting his "Shark Tail" fin on his feet. Pretty cool toy, but he hasn't quite got it figured out yet.

Maia ventures into the kiddie pool. Slowly.

Once again, Maia wins the photo wars with Mom. It is just easier to catch her sitting still I suppose. I thought she looked cute laying in the sun on her towel.

Good to know that the 78-degree minimum is still being observed by some parts of Vista Acres. Oh the days of having to dive in for swim practice and turning blue before you reached the other end!!! Memories!
