One Last Summer Post

Our pool closed for summer on September 8th so we had to get one last swim in.  The weather was so beautiful that weekend as it has been for the last couple of weeks with no rain and very mild temperatures in the 70's.  We loved it!  Brody decided that he couldn't let Evan outdo him on his progress in the pool this summer so he tried out a few tricks of his own by swimming freely with just his arm floats on without us having to hold onto him.  He was so brave and loved kicking his little feet.  When he got water in his mouth, all we had to say was spit it out, and he was fine.  I think we'll have another swimmer soon!

Brody loved having the little pool all to himself.

Evan's favorite thing to do at the pool...play Foosball!

I sure hope he doesn't lose his newly acquired water skills over the winter.

Splash!

He would rather swim underwater than above.  I think it takes him less effort.

He had to do it one more time!

So proud of himself!

We took little Italian ice cups to the pool as a treat because the snack bar doesn't stay open long.

Mommy can never resist stealing a kiss.  I have taught him so well that when Daddy tries to kiss Mommy, he comes up making kissing sounds wanting to kiss too.  Haha!

High fives for Daddy.

He loves floating on his back.

I think he'll be ready for swim lessons next year.

So brave.

He loved it!

Time for basketball!

He has also come a long way in being able to throw and catch pretty effectively.

Silly face! 

Goodbye, Summer!  See you next year!

  1. I don't think Evan will lose his skills over the fall/winter/spring. He'll probably be a little akward at first and need a bit of a warm-up when he gets back in the pool, but it'll come back quickly.

    You got some sweet jump shots off the diving board!

  3. This post reminds me that we didn't spend near enough time in the pool this summer. I love all the pictures of Evan and his new-found confidence! And Mister Brody is just so cute :)
