The Good Life

Now this is the way I like to babysit my grandchildren.
The only thing that would have been better is if I had wore a bathing suit!
It was so hot! I don't know what I was thinking.
That's Alyssa coming off the slide!
My daughter joined this country club here in town
so the kids would have a nice place to swim this summer.
It sure does make our days more fun!
Tris said it was cold when she first got in but it was in the 90's!
They have a nice little snack bar and we had hot dogs, chicken fingers and fries
for lunch at the pool. What a life!
Tris is so good with her little brother & sister!
Next time I will be out in that water with them!

There is Brother jumping in!
They never stopped. They were the energizer bunnies! We stayed about 4 hours.
Now this is the way I like to keep my grandchildren.

The next day we went and had lunch with my daughter, Mandy and "Little D" and then brought him home with us for the afternoon. He was so good. He is almost 6 months old and has grown so much. I don't know why I didn't get any pictures. That is just not like me. I must have been busy with 4 kids! They were all so good!

I have always kept my grandchildren in the summer but this year I am only keeping them a couple of days in the week. It used to seem more like a job and now it is fun! I am looking forward to many more fun days with them this summer!

Me & my "sweet honey" & our little bass tracker
are leaving to go out of town fishing for the weekend.
We are so excited. We have worked so hard here around our house to get ready to go, so we deserve it. We are hoping for some rest, relaxation, good food & lots of fishing!

A Very Special Happy Fathers Day to my
"sweet honey", my Dad, & both of my Son in Laws!

Absolutely you should've been in the water with them - 90's, yikes! The pool is the only place to be in that heat. Looks like fun! Have a great weekend fishing!

It looks as though everyone is having a great time. There is nothing that says summer like swimming on a hot day.

Have a great weekend. I hope you catch BIG.

I'm so glad we have a pool. It has been 100 degrees and higher this will make the 4th day in a row. Looks like ya'll had a grand time.

I remember when my boys were little, I would bring them to the beach almost every day in the summer time and they would play in the water for hours...gave me a chance to relax and just watch them or join them:-) As you say, the perfect way to spend a hot day!!

Have fun on your weekend fishing trip, you and your hubby certainly do deserve it:-) xoxo
