This Memorial Monday Lauren invited us to come swimming (if the weather permits) - seriously, yesterday it was COLD & WINDY - miraculously, today there's not a cloud in the sky!
We had such a great time!
Lauren & Ryan
Let me just say, that water was c-c-c-c-cOld!!! But Ryan didn't seem the least bit phased, he just sat there chillin'.
Now, I don't know if it runs in the family genes, is a mother thing, or is learned behavior but this is how I saw Lauren (and she likely saw me) nearly the entire day! -Gotta capture these moments, right!
Tristen had a blast tickling Ryan's toes under the water!
He's a natural! Started kicking his feet and everything!
I just love this natural smile of Lauren's - she's such a proud momma!
He can touch the bottom (flat footed) in the 5' center of the pool!!
Blowing bubbles in the pool water to make Ryan laugh.
Seth & Ryan
Seth, caught off guard - he wasn't wanting his picture taken today for some reason.
Seth would go under the water and look up at Ryan then pop up and splash him! It was so cute to watch my boys interact with a baby again!
Ryan would try to pull Seth's goggles off.
Garrett pretty much stayed to himself, just enjoying the water (cold/hot) going from the pool to the jacuzzi and back all day.
I'm just loving these Summer freckles!
Hayden was getting used to his water wings again.
He's got adorable Summer freckles too... see?
A couple of years ago Garrett got this beach towel for his birthday, it's really cool because the towel is a checkers game board. Here he & Hayden played checkers (taking a break from the water).
Ryan had a little snack and passed out cold! (nice timing, Lauren was just leaving to get a pizza!)
He said, "PIZZA?!! I want some!
As soon as his momma walked in...
Awesome! Pizza at the pool!
And that's how we spent Memorial Day 2011 - how about you?
