first swim

As usual, we didn't close down our pool during the winter and then BOOM! NC had a mild winter and even milder early spring thus producing lots and lots of alge. Our pool was kelly green for a few weeks until Dad got it up & running. Once we all had bathing suits (did you know you grow over the winter and then your bathing suit doesn't fit anymore?! me either.) we jumped in and basically stayed in for pictures then hopped out. It was just a wee bit chilly.

Clark got in first, I dipped my legs in second, and Dad cannon-balled in third. And naturally I had to take pictures of it all. 

We rock the farmer's tan, ya'll. 

This would be my had-a-long-day-at-work face. Or my don't-take-a-picture-of-me face. Both are applicable.

He was so happy to be in the pool again.

The instant the pool was ready we started talking about who would get the honor of being our first guests invited out to swim. The Bolands were quickly aksed and then BOOM! We had a whole afternoon with them full of food. And petting the kittens. And swimming in COLD water. And playing card games (badly, in my case). And most of all, laughing.
See? FOOD.

I can't even. I look at this picture and laugh my head off because I don't know what he was looking at.

The parents & Lydia. 


They taught us how to play Kemps (sp?)...best card game ever.

True SA faces for ya...

Jack's a beast at catching people before they call kemps.
It was a great afternoon. I didn't want them to leave...I hate it when friends live so far away. Lots of pool days will happen in the future I'm sure. Thanks for coming out guys!
