Pool days

We have been spending tons of time at the pools here in town! We got at least 2-3 times a week.  The kids all love it! It is getting pretty challenging to take all 4 kids by myself though as now that both of the girls are walking a lot better they have NO fear and walk in the water up to their waist and fall down face first in the water! So I really have to keep a hand on both of them all while trying to watch the boys! It's been nice having Meggie and Mindy home because when we go to the pool most of the times we meet each other there and have a picnic beforehand and go in together so a couple extra sets of hands helps for sure! When we went to the pool last Sunday I actually took my camera for once since Jon was there too so here are some pictures from that day.

 What I really like about the new pool (Cascade Falls) is that the "little kids" area is ALL by itself! No rope seperating the deep end and the little sprinklers for the girls and the big slide the boys like to go down is ALL RIGHT THERE!! No having to be on opposite ends of the pool like the old pool (Prairie Ridge).  And we all LOVE the lazy river!! We each take a double tube and the boys ride/sit in the front hole and Jon and I each take a baby and sit/walk along in the back hole of the GREAT!!

 Their friend Luke just got done with swimming lessons so he showed the boys how to go under water and hold your breath so the boys have been doing that too! They will love swimming lessons when they go in late July!

 {Jewels walked all the way out to this little thing (for those of you who go to this pool know what I'm talking about) and started climbing the stairs to go up...she is sooo determined and throws the biggest fit when she doesn't get her way!!}
