Little Fishies!

A normal Texas summer is HOT!!! Welp, this year, not so much. It has been warm, but not hot. But still, every afternoon, that it is not raining or storming, we go to our city pool. The kids LOVE it, and it's a nice, safe place for the kids to play. I will say, I have never been nervous about taking them anywhere by myself before, but the pool stresses me out slightly. We always have a talk on the way to the pool about being safe and staying close. And after one particular incident where a certain little girl thought I left her, which of course I didn't, we talked about how the lifeguards in the red bathing suits with the white cross, are the ones who keep us safe, and they will always help us. We love our lifeguards, especially Charlie and me! I always stay very close to him, but there have been a couple of times where he has tipped forward in his life jacket. The first time, I was sitting down and the lifeguard got there before I did, the second time I was right there to pick him up. And don't think I'm a terrible parent, neither time, was he under for more than two or three seconds, I promise! And yes we are going to get him some puddle jumpers. So here are some fun pics of the kiddos enjoying the pool!

He's like a beached whale 90% of the time
At times, the Big Timer, looks little special in his swim gear

what a fun looking pool! We don't have anything like that around here. I don't blame you for being nervous taking all 4 to the pool by yourself. I haven't been brave enough to do that either. My kids aren't as comfortable in the water yet. We are doing swimming lessons this month and next so I hope that helps some.

Love the pic of Charlie, looking like a beached whale! LOL!

Oh my, I can totally see why the pool and 4 little ones makes you nervous. They are so super cute and your Charlie is hilarious. Looks like a really fun pool area.
