If we weren't boogie boarding in the ocean or building bears at Broadway, you could find our family at the pool.
The condo we rent gives us access to 3 different pools in the area. We always go to the biggest one in the back of the neighborhood because its our favorite :)
In the past, Jocelyn has not been a big fan of pools. She grips onto someone for dear life (me, her dad, Jaina), and wants to get out as soon as she gets in.
She also hates water wings and puddle jumpers and life jackets.
Thank goodness our friend Christie Anne told us about a different kind of flotation device/swimming trainer that her son used. Jocelyn tried out her friend's and was hooked. We went to a pool supply shop to purchase our own and now we have a toddler who LOVES the water!
And of course the teen loves water. Or, more like showing off her new swimsuit from Target and perfecting hair flipping pictures.
She did play with her brother some, too :)
Jocelyn wanted to play "Torpedos" almost the entire time she was in the pool. Brian was a good sport and played this game, which was essentially a game of "fetch", with her.
Jaina is such a good big sister to Jocelyn :)
Jayce was nice enough to take a few pictures as we were leaving so I could prove that *I* was actually at the pool, too :) In my new swimsuit from Target as well :P
When she wasn't playing Torpedoes, she was "having a tan." Her words, of course.
Jayce entertains himself in the pool and pretty much retreats into his own world. That's how water affects him. He loves it. I really do wish we had a pool for him to use every day. We did get him to play Marco Polo with us a time or two :)
"Why are you not taking MY picture?? I want a picture!"
I'm not even going to attempt to edit out the face marks left by his swim mask. :P
