Lovin' The Water

Okay, so if you've read my sisters blog, you already know that we went to Crystal River to the condo for a day of swimming in the pool and just hanging out with the family. Crystal wanted to do something fun for her last official day off from work, she called me yesterday and asked if there was any way that we could go down to the condo today. We left the house this morning with some pretty nasty looking clouds looming over us. As we were driving to Crystal River I kept looking at the sky wondering if we were going to get any sunshine for our day at the pool. When we got to the pool, it was still cloudy, (the clouds were coming in off of the gulf, but the winds were pushing them right on past us) but Mr. Sun was trying to peak out for us. He finally decided to show his bright face for us and we were able to have some fun in the pool.
My two little nephews, Waylon and Wyatt had such a good time swimming and splashing around. When we first got to the pool Kaelyn told Waylon that he would have to take his boots off before getting into the pool. As I was opening the gate leading into the pool, I look down to find Waylons boots sitting there and him in his socked feet and swimsuit, too cute. Both of the boys were eager to get into that water and start doing some heavy duty splashing on us. Wyatt just loved that water so much, that he didn't want anyone to hold on to him. He wanted to do it himself. Wyatt realized that he could stand up on the ledge of the pool and jump in. At first he wanted to jump to us, then he would sit on the ledge and make the most pitiful face you had ever seen until we moved out of his way so he could jump in by himself. Mr. Independent didn't need help from any of us and he wasn't shy about letting us know that. Waylon on the other hand was more cautious of what he was doing. Waylon did jump in if we were there to catch him, and he even decided he could float around without any help too. Boy what a big improvement from the last time we took them swimming. My little guys are doing so well and trying so many new things.

Tyler and Kaelyn had a good time with their cousins today too. They did a great job with playing with Waylon and Wyatt. My kids love the water and always find ways to amuse themselves while in the pool. Today, Tyler was pretending to be a boat while Kaelyn was his passenger. My kiddos have great imaginations and can pretty much have fun any where they are.
