We spent ALL day in the pool. We made a fort out of rafts, did cannonballs, made an obstacle course for the kids, and got our tan on. Jacob was not a fan at first, but by the end of the day he was swimming solo and didn't want help from anybody. He also determined that my name is 'Zanderson'. Long story short..my nickname is 'Zander', that is what Bff Jil calls me, Jacob for some reason liked 'Zanderson' better.
We called a break when a breeze picked up and we got a little chilly in the water. It was supposed to be 103 degrees, and I would guess it was maybe 90. Which is still hot, but not really when you add cold pool water, and a breeze. While Bff Jil and I lounged on our towels eating pretzel m&ms and drinking hard lemonade, the kids frolicked around with the beach ball sprinkler and had icees.
They were HILARIOUS when playing with this thing. They both used their cups to dunk water over each others heads. I have never heard two kids laugh so much! They are presh.
I do believe this is one of my all time favorite pictures. How cute do they look? This was the five seconds that they remained still all afternoon.
We finally ventured back into the shade of the house when the kids started to look a little red. They played the Wii and then watched Monsters, Inc. while Bff Jil and I watched a documentary ('8: The Mormon Proposition'; it was really interesting). I went to check on them in my room and they were sitting on the bed, watching the movie...and holding hands. True love at age 5...who would have thought?!
What did YOU all do over the weekend?
