We love to swim

We all really love swimming at Nana and Papa's house. It is so much fun to splash and play in their heated (usually) pool all year round. We have made lots of great memories with friends and family in this little pool and I know there are many more yet to be made.

It wasn't long ago that Luke wouldn't leave the step. Now he loves to be on this "boat" and float around the whole pool. Maybe one day he'll venture putting his face under water.

On the other hand there's Ella, our fish. In fact on this day when we got out she proudly announced to everyone, "I'm a fish!!"

Ella loves her Cousin Ben. Who doesn't love this cool kid?

She had just got done jumping in and going all the way under the water. She always comes up smiles.

Ella loves to swim with her Papa. Notice that my Dad has on a spring suit. That shows you how cold the water was. Nobody intended to go in it until I walked out with Ella to put her feet in, hoping it would convince her that she really didn't want to swim. About 2 seconds later she was shoulder deep in the pool asking for Papa to come in and swim with her. About 20 seconds later all the other kids were in as well. Crazy kids... no cares of temperature as long as there is fun involved.
