summer time swimming



I think it is officially summer. We finally made it to the pool for the first time this season. For some reason everything in this post is underlined so sorry about that. Anyway, Banks recovered from his 4 days of fever this morning and Ben is still in between semesters so we all went to the pool together this afternoon and had a lovely time getting burnt. Not the children, of course, but the genius parents of the children who think they are above SPF 50. Incidentally, this was also Banks' first time ever to the swimming pool and he enjoyed it more than Benson did, I think. Sadly I think the Morris non-swimming genes really pulled through in the children's genetic makeup. Sorry, Ben.

Thats a sweet pool! Man i think i was deprived as a child. We rarely got a diving board! Let alone a mushroom waterfall! Looks like you guys are soakin it up!! You can tell Ben that i don't have much of a swimming gene either. Steve has to drag me out into the ocean everyday. I do it!! But i don't like it too much.

I took many years of swimming lessons as a kid and still do the doggie paddle...haha....I am not a big fan of swimming...poor Drew doesn't like that too much...he is a fish....looks like you had a fun family pool day....Sorry about the sunburn...hopefully it will turn into tan instead of peel!!! Love you guys.

Oh, that looks like SO much fun! I can't wait to take our kids to the Spray Park we have here. ...But yours looks way more cool!

You guys are just going to have to move to MI if you want your kids to sprout fins. :)

Carrie.. you're a HOT MAMA!! That looks like so much fun! Where did you go??

Caity said...

I second that motion Meg! Your kids would not be able to resist L.M.! Every time I get in L.M. I feel like a kid again! Plus, we're here (like half the family almost)!

That park really does look like fun though! I wish it was swimming time already here! We have a few more weeks yet.

Oh, tell Ben I think he looks buff. He's been working out, huh? Drew has some competition :)
