More summer fun

I am so lucky we have a pool. Sure I had my reservations at first. But honestly, we would die of boredom around here without it. We go at least once a day. It is especially fun when friends join us. Monday evening we had two other couples and their kiddos join us for grilling dinner and swimming.So fun! Tuesday and Thursday Kathi has come with her kids. We do our workout DVD while the baby girls nap and the other kids play. Then we hop in the pool, swim, and feed the kids lunch together. I hope we can be consistent with it. I think it is good for all of us. Wednesday we had an impromptu play date with my SIL Andrea and her 2, Mel and Gracie, and Stephanie and her 3. It was a party in the pool! I haven't left the house since Sunday. I don't know how these kids would stay entertained without swimming at our house. Heaven knows I have no desire to take all 4 anywhere.

If the kids get cold from swimming we hop in the hot tub for a few minutes to warm up. After todays swim the hot tub was not much warmer than the pool. I had left in uncovered overnight(oops). So we opted to shove 5 kids in the bath in their suits to warm them up. Pretty funny.

LOve the bathtub/hot tub idea. You put bubbles in so that makes it more like a hot tub, right?

I think I might come stay with you. I can't afford a pool and a wedding this summer.

Sounds like such an awesome plan for working out! I am glad you get to with a friend!

Your little kiddos are so cute!

GREAT pictures, as usual. Jonah just saw the close up of Paisley below and ran over and said, "Charlotte!" Your pool IS pretty great. Now, Jo is saying, "Playsies", he likes to make names plural for some reason.
