breaking it in slowly

I am happy to report that our pool is *almost* done!!! I will wait to post pictures of it until everything is finished. Last week while filling the pool/spa the boys couldn’t wait to jump in. Hence the naked 4 year old and diaper clad 15 month old.

This past weekend we really broke the pool in!! Luckily before this nasty stomach bug or food poisoning hit our household! Trust me…it wasn’t pretty around here. We spend Saturday and Sunday swimming. Of course the one weekend our pool is ready to swim in it’s in the 80’s and our freshly filled pool was pretty cold so we heated the spa up just enough to keep warm while we jumped back and forth between the two. The boys loved it!! It was SO nice not having to load up the two boys, ALL of our pool toys, snacks for the afternoon and drive over to our community pool to spend an hour or so swimming. We just hopped out and took some naps or ate a little lunch on the patio. Heaven!!

I think it’s safe to say these two boys are happy campers! I know we only have a few more weeks left of swimming, but I know we have so many fun memories to look forward to next summer…not to mention that Brooks and I have some date nights planned with the spa and a bottle of wine…of course after Gavin is born and after Gavin is sleeping longer than 2 hour increments.
