First Swim

Given the unseasonably warm weather lately (yes, 90s is hot for April in South Texas), we were able to take the kiddos out in the backyard on Friday and let them play in their kiddie pool.

I bought the pool during a end-of-the-season sale last year and hadn't opened it yet. Given almost a years growth, it was funny to see how they could barely fit in the pool together.

Jared and Annabelle still have the same attitude towards water. Jared is very cautious and Belle is very brave. Jared is content with playing quietly in the water, while Belle wants to splash around.

Jared ended up getting out of the pool and playing next to it; this is the closest I got to a picture of them both smiling.
Annabelle used that time to perfect her splashing. I love these pictures because Gweg has similar pictures at around the same age.
She decided that the bucket made a nice hat; she's very fashion forward.

I got out the sprinkler to see if they'd run through it. Jared still won't go near it and Annabelle got to the edge of where the spray hit and that's where she stopped.
I can't believe how big she is. Most of the pictures are her because Jared kept turning his back to me---it's like he's figured me out... already. Yikes.
At the end of the adventure we discovered the pool sat on a small ant gathering; little annoying ones that bite (luckily Mommy figured that out). So, we moved the pool to the patio so they couldn't get us. Other than the ants, the kids loved the pool night and I'm sure we'll be doing it again over the summer.


  1. Even if they can't fit in it together very well, they at least look like they're having fun.

  2. Cute kids in cute suits! Wish we were there to play with you guys!
