Pool Party

Sunday we spent the afternoon at Grandma and Grandpa's house, swimming, grilling, and enjoying the nice weather.

Just like last year, Ben is very mellow when he's in the water.

Except when Mom and Dad both left the pool, then he freaked out a little.

And when we put him in this float. He was okay for a minute, but then he started crying and just wanted mama, so I carried him around in the pool for the rest of the time...which is why there are no more pictures of Ben in the water.

All that swimming left Ben tired.

But he perked up when Denise showed him the pool noodle. He dragged this one around the yard for at least 10 minutes.
Before we headed out, we put him in some dry clothes. (If you look closely, that shirt says "Lifeguard on Duty" and has a fake whistle.) Ben had fun just going up and down this step.

And the wind chimes were another hit.

As was this dolphin float.
Dee got tired of Ben getting all the attention, so she jumped up on Grandma's lap to get a little love.

After a while, Ben was exhausted and ran to the back door, telling us "bye bye, bye bye." I guess it was time to go.


  1. Leave it to Dee to be the only one who can upstage a cute kid like Ben!

  2. It looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I hope it wasn't as hot up there as it has been down here in Texas!

  3. Man, he's a cutie. I love the lifeguard shirt!
