Yes, These Kids Have Already Been in the Pool #NH #VT

These kids of mine have already ventured into the pool at my Dad’s home in Vermont. Yes. They did. The pool was about 70 degrees. Of course, me being the parent I am, told them only dip your feet. Seriously, what was I thinking? Dip your feet means get in the water up to your chest, which turned into my Dad saying to me, “what are you talking about? If they can put their feet in then they can get in!” Leave it to Dad … so in they went.

Kicking off Summer Early

So the kids… decided to listen to Grampa because Mom is chop liver when big ole Grampa is around πŸ˜‰

I love that all three kids were having a blast, after all they hadn’t slept very well the night before. I worked 10-12 on Saturday morning and knew the kids had to get out of the house that day. I figured what better place than Grampas! It’s all farm land with obviously this pool too. Once we arrived and the van was stopped, we all were at peace. I love it!

I adore that Aj was smiling, laughing and joking away with everyone. It was a fun time for all and Miss Olivia was there too with my sister …

It was a beautiful day full of swimming, chatting, laughing and walking out to the barn to see the cow as well as behind Grampa’s to see the piggies. I can’t wait for some food from those piggies!

The pool was warm to the kids, but it was too early for this Mama to be hopping in. Have you gone in an outdoor pool yet this year?

  1. Your dad’s place does sound awesome. I suspect the most awesome part about it is your dad. πŸ˜‰

    We went to the beach last weekend, and the little one was all the way in the water (Lake Michigan is not warm πŸ˜‰ ). He loved it though…and we were right beside him but only up to our calves/knees.

  2. Aww at least they enjoyed themselves.My kids have been begging for me to get there paddling pool out i seriously think they do not realize it is not warm enough, I did tell them and my oldest boy who is 7 told me to put warm water in it crazy kid lol.

  3. If you can’t bet them, join them! Jump in!
    The picture with your dad and little daughter is the best, award winning I would say!

    1. Thanks Mitch! That picture is of my Dad, with my niece πŸ™‚ Isn’t it just precious?? I hope to print it for my sister and my Dad someday soon!

  4. This is so very true! What kid can only put their feet in? We haven’t been swimming yet, but I’m ready!

  5. Pools are so much fun – safety rules are #1 – the kids know Nana is not joking – she seriously will make you get out if you do not follow the rules.

  6. yes we have many times, and our pool water was about 60 first time we were in. we lasted like 2 minutes. we’re hardcore swimmers here though

  7. Our neighborhood pool has been open for a few weeks and we can’t get our kids out! They are so ready for summer and for it to be warm every day!

  8. what fun is just a toe LOL. Of course I was that way when I was a kid, now that I am adult I follow just the toe rule most of the time LOL
