Pool Side Fun...

Our Saturday evening was spent by the pool. It was nice and we finally had a storm free afternoon. Hailey has been wanting to go swimming but we've had lots of rain (thankfully) but that puts a damper on the pool thing for her when lighting is involved.
We took Pedro over and it was his first time by the pool. He wasn't too interested about getting in. He's so different from our previous dogs. (Labs, they loved water) He doesn't really like the hose either. He enjoyed watching them play though and then he just went off and played on his own.
My little Jack...all geared up to swim. He even said he was going to do it this time but nope! Just wanted to sit on the FIRST step and kick. Hailey said maybe when Jack is 4 he'll swim :-) Pretty soon he got up and started playing in the hose to water the flowers and make mud puddles!
Hailey is getting so much braver!! Now she doesn't care if she goes under when she jumps off the side.
Swimming with Papa! They stayed out there for a long time after we all went in. They had a good time hanging out with each other!

Here's some of my mom's flowers out by the pool. I'm trying to play with my camera more and learn a little bit.... I just need to sit down and read the manual :-)
Some residents have moved into a little mailbox that is on the back of their back porch. They'll be evicted today! Haven't been paying any rent...

Nobody has moved into this one... I guess it looks a little scary to a bird :-) I think it's cute! We had a great time at Grandma and Papa's. Pretty soon the kids are going to figure out how to walk there on their own and I'll be in a lot of trouble!!

Great pictures! I've always thought you were good with the camera.

I like the flying pig in your mom's yard. It looks like something she would have in her yard. (I mean that in a good way.)

At least Jack is getting in the water now! That's a step in the right direction! Maybe next time he'll go two steps into the water!

Hailey and Jack look so cute in their goggles. It looks like they are having so much fun, even Jack.

If Ralston and Jack aren't swimming by next summer, we just need to sign them up for lessons.

Oh my goodness, only your mother (and me) would have a pig house in the backyard! Is that a contradiction in terms?? Pig house, bird house?

Love the pig! The kids look like they were having a great time. I'm sure it won't be long until Jack's swimming as much as Hailey. He's already dressing the part.

We need to get Jack and Ralston over to Ms. Melissa's house. She will have them swimming in no time!

I love how Jack is fully prepared to swim, but just sits on the top step. Baby steps....
