I have dreams about my own pond. I LOVE this pond! Perhaps I am slightly green with envy at this fabulous pond my brother-in-law Ed has in his backyard, it is so very much fun. Ed put this pond in himself, great work Uncle Eddie.
I mean really, wouldn't you love to have this in your back yard?
It even has a little sandy beach part for the little kids.
It was a slightly over-cast day and the water was quite chilly, but that never stops us. We didn't even have our swimsuits with us. Aunt Becky outfitted the girls with some of her son's clothes, bball shorts and t-shirts. I thought they looked great but Taite says to me "Mommy, we look like how you dress!" Bailey quickly added "Yeah, we look like boys, no offense Mom." What are you going to do...the truth hurts :)
Cy and Bailey are crazy in the water, I love it. They have no fear and I love watching them play around. Bailey is determined to "master" the cannon ball like how her Daddy can do it. I don't think she will ever have the size for the massive Tidal Wave Matt can produce, but don't tell her that.
Two peas in a pod
Elle is all about speed, ever trying to perfect her skills :) Taite just likes it all and tries to keep up.
Everyone had so much fun. I was busy taking pictures and thought I would get in shortly when my sister-in-law, the comedian, decided to push me off the dock with all my clothes on. Ha ha Becky. Actually it was hilarious. My kids still bring it up all the time.
Well everyone had a great time, except for my little Gus man. He wanted nothing to do with the water. It was cold and he was just enjoying the sand. Or maybe it was the fact that we tried to make him wear this...the only life jacket in his size. Rude, Mommy.
