The Long Awaited Pool Opening

Our neighborhood pool opened Memorial weekend. The kids have been asking for months "how many more days until the pool opens?". We have to pass the pool to get to our house, so now they ask EVERY day if we can go. I am grateful to have the pool and it is a great pool, but I have to say taking a 6 year old, 3 year old and a 16 month old to the pool is a lot of work. It's not like I get to sit and bask in the sun and read magazines. It is NON-STOP chasing, floatie inflating, sunscreen applying, holding, taking to the potty, lifeguarding, and wrangling. Oh well, the kids have a ball so I guess it's worth it. Brent went with us on Memorial Day, so it was a little easier and I was able to snap a few quick pictures, but they are not great.

Big Sis and Baby Brother.
He looks so big in these, and Hollace has really started to be a big helper lately with Thad.

Thad wasn't too sure at first, the water is still pretty cold, but he ended up having a great time.
I could barely catch Rhett for a picture. This is the best I could get.

Cute pics! I'm sure the new-ness of the pool will wear off soon enough, maybe a day or two before the season is over if you're lucky. =o)

cute stuff! our kiddos are begging to go to the water park, but I am with you...taking a 6 yr old, 5 yr old, 3 yr old, and 21 month old to the water alone...not my idea of fun!

It looks like they had fun...even if it was a lot of work for you!
