First swim of the Summer

Its Summertime!!! And Summertime in Texas means one thing: swimming. There really isn't anything else you can do outdoors! Its so dang hot here! All I can say is, I am so glad to not be pregnant this summer. I prefer having the baby out to play, rather than in my tummy:) Last Summer was a smidge brutal. So, anyways, these pics are from late last month when we visited our neighborhood pool for the first time this year. It was also Ammon's first experience at the pool ever. He wasn't sure what to think of it all and had a very serious inquisitive little face:) It was so adorable. Watching everything through a babies eyes is so fun. By the second time we visited, he was smiling and splashing like crazy though! Splashing so much he was soaked. He loves the water.. like his Daddy:) We'll make a surfer out of him yet!

I look like a crazy person, but this picture is so cute(of Ammon:) He kept lifting up his little feet!

The girls always have a blast swimming. They were so excited when we told them the pool was open! Aubrey & Ella are awesome swimmers. And we've actually gotten Cali to put her face in a couple of times(which is a first:) so I'm hoping by the end of this Summer she will have overcome those fears more. They are both currently finishing up swim lessons. Aubrey is learning and perfecting new strokes. She just passed Level 4 in one session! Her instructor said she does the butterfly perfectly. Ella is getting awesome at rotary breathing and the backstroke. Her instructors told me today she is the strongest swimmer in her class and will be ready for Level 3 next. And Cali is just having a fun time with water and getting less and less scared of it in her lil swimmers class. Yea!

Love Cali's face in this one. She looks almost as happy as she is when she is holding candy.

Aubrey getting her swim on.

Ella getting ready to jump in. I believe she is surveying which part of the pool is most conducive to canon-balling :)

My boys: tired after a fun day at the pool.

Gosh, they're handsome.

What a fun day at the pool with your darling family. I have a great idea.... why don't you come and spend a week at the Staffy spa and spend all day in our pool????
Hugs, Lura
