For Ben’s birthday (in May), the Klearmans’ gave him a gift certificate for our families to spend the day at the pool together sometime this summer, which I thought was such a fun idea. We met up last Saturday and had a great time!
Eli loved the areas that had water spraying -
Covering up the holes is too tempting -
Saralyn and Will -
Charlie spent some time in the water, and some time in the stroller – the stroller straps are just as exciting as swimming to a little guy :)
Will and Eli looking at the assortment of toys (not necessarily the best pool toys, but they worked okay)
We walked over to the diving boards for a little bit so Ben and Drew could show off their skills… Ben did a flip off of the lower diving board and all of the kids were impressed!
Mike held Eli while Ben was flipping -
Drew impressed us when he went off of the high diving board with no fear at all -
And here’s Eli, kicking back after a few hours at the pool.
There’s nothing better than spending four hours away from the hustle and bustle of life, outside on a warm day, soaking in some sunshine. We purposely didn’t plan anything for the entire day so we wouldn’t feel rushed or be worrying about getting ready for something else while we were there, and it was the perfect break from our often chaotic lives.
