little fish

summer favorite: the neighborhood pool. 

now that we've lived in a community with a pool, i'm not sure we'll ever be able to go back (much like converting to a king bed).  the pool is on our daily agenda and never gets old.  i pack the boys a bowl of grapes & strawberries and we embark on our 1/2 mile walk to the watering hole.  we love meeting up with friends and meeting new neighbors.
parker is a FISH.  he loves, loves, loves the pool.  he is not afraid of the water one bit and can jump in the deep end and swim to the ladder at 3 years old!  (no worries, i stay close to him).  he taught himself how to do a flip off the side of the pool and can do both back and front flips in the water.  he is so happy being out in the sun.  with all of this talk of generation XL, i am thankful for morning exercise (which = longer nap!).
paxton took a few weeks to warm up to the water, but now loves it almost as much as his brother.  like parks, pax has been known to jump off the side into deep water so we have to keep a close eye on our little walking machine.
i am so thankful to have this "free" summer activity at our fingertips and am living it up while the temps are over 100 every day!
my little snuggle bug.  and because it's fun to compare, here is a little video of parker at paxton's age.  i hope to have a similar video of pax to post soon!  love yall.
