Backyard Swimming!

June 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

For Memorial Day, our crew headed to Plainview to see Erin's folks, Gammy and Papa.  They have a pretty good sized above-ground pool they set up if the kids are going to be around for a few days, but it's not worth messing with it just for one afternoon...it takes that long just to fill it up!  However, they hated not to have anything for the kids to swim in.  The solution?  Well it's a horse tank, of course!  Eddie has a small tank he uses to hold the fish and plants from their pond when he cleans it, and also, apparently, to put the kids in when they're just in town for the day.  :)

From swimming...

 

To shooting each other with water guns...

To pouting because "she didn't stop shooting me when I told her to stop"...

To "you guys just shoot out into the grass because I'm tired of listening to you whine about getting shot" (making a face optional)...

To blowing bubbles...

To coming up gasping for air...

 

They loved every minute of it!  From there, they dried off and we went inside.  Cayden has been all about the game of Hangman lately, and we found it on the tablet and he and Papa played against the girls...

 
And then games and videos entered the picture...

And finally, a couple of shots of the Memorial Day projects the kids and Erin did for Eddie and Sue in memory of their dads...

Thanks for reading, have a great week!
