Breaking out the POOL, folks! The Sun is Shining!

We've just had some dreary, yucky days. Brian and I both had bronchitis and an upper respiratory infection over the last week, and we were both running really low on energy. Our antibiotics are now done, we are starting to feel more human again, and nothing can put a kick in your step like SWIMMING!!!! As you scroll down, you will see it was just mini-swimming, but it required bathing suits nonetheless!!! I was just happy to get the kids outside, and Reid stayed in one spot long enough for me to snap some photos. It was a fun afternoon, and the kids slept great that night! I think we will have to swim as much as we can this summer!!!!
Reid getting his first glimpse of the pool, or mini-pool rather. Love these trunks on him with the little swim diaper sticking out! Too funny!

Ellie helping Reid in the pool. She was about beside herself....she couldn't wait to get in!
Ohhhhh, a bit chilly! As you can see, Reid takes his lead from Ellie. He watches EVERY move she makes!
Splashing.....and enjoying the water.
And nothing beats a yummy pospsicle after all that hard work of playing in the water!

And yes, leave it to my daughter. My princess girlie-girl daughter to show Reid how to spit water out of their mouths. Unfortunately, Reid thought this was hysterical, and that just added fuel to Ellie's fire.

Glad to hear that you are both feeling better. Not fun being sick. We have been getting some swim time in too, but only because I paid for it. The two older ones are signed up for swim lessons, 4 days a week for the next two weeks. Not sure how much pleasure swimming will happen the next two weeks since that will keep us pretty busy. Enjoy the wonderful summer. And as always, thanks for sharing the adorable pics.

They're soooo cute! What loving siblings! I love the pictures.

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.
