Cool in the Pool

On Saturday my youngest son Mike and his girlfriend Alisa
came home for a day by the pool.
We had so much fun swimming (no one really swam)
and doing cannon balls!

There was some serious contemplation here,
"you know, I'm not as young as I use to be",
"do you think the board is still o.k., it's been a while you know"

But after much teasing encouragement,
he sprang off that diving board like a pro!!

 Around here, it's all about the splash.
Mike scored a perfect 10!!

Look at that ripple in the water, perfection!!

Chuck was up next, he required a lot of cheering...

he had great form,

and an awesome splash!!

Mike and Alisa goofing off...

She's so sweet and a great sport!!

We played pool frisbee and ate till our bellies hurt.
There was one very long game of Uno that the hubs won.
He never wins,
 I'm not sure what he was thinking, we always let Mike win.

I love when my boys come home, I love it with every fiber of my being.

Tomorrow, I will be sharing pictures of the food I prepared.
And we will talk about the food I prepared and never photographed.


  1. It looks like a very nice day. She looks like a keeper. You always make such yummy food I can't wait to see photos.
    I am so glad you had one of your boys home.

  2. So glad you had some wonderful family time together.

  3. Sounds like a fun day. And I know what you mean about the "kids" coming for a visit....sweet!! :-)

  4. I think you discovered the next olympic sport. What fun! I would love to have my daughter close enough to visit for the day. You guys know how to have the best time. Hugs, Bonnie

  5. How fun, fun, fun. You have a pool, lucky woman. Those splashes were all 10's that's for sure!

  6. What a fun, family day! Tell Chuck he gets a 10 from me. Last time I came off a diving board there was a serious [and painful] belly flop involved.

  7. Family fun is the best. Those are some great slashes.You captured them perfectly.

  8. You have the greatest view of the river! Growing up we spent a ton of time at my grandparents river house. (My parents used to live there until they built their house.) We had a telescope and would spy on people across the river. We always spied on two boys and watched them grow up throughout the years. How funny would that be if they were your boys!

    Brady was supposed to be sleeping the other night and came out to join me on the couch as I was watching the Olympics. I was wathcing the high dive. He said in disbelief "Mom they have cannon balls in the Olympics!?" I'm so glad you had a nice visit with your family.

  9. I see very well is your occupation and swimming in the pool.
    It must be very happy day.

  10. What a fantastic view you have from your pool!! Great post and I am cooler now just looking at your pics!

    Love seeing them BOYS having fun!

  11. It's been a while since I've done a cannonball myself! I doubt my form would be as good. Great way to spend the day!

  12. Looks like great pool fun and "cooling" too.

  13. Oh they should so make that an Olympic event. I'm sure your lads would win :))
    Sounds like a great day - glad to hear you all had fun.

  14. Looks you had alot of fun taking those pictures. He really is a sport. My daughter is also in town, but she is leaving today. BOO HOO.
    Can't wait to see the foods you prepared.

  15. I love it when my son comes to visit. Your pics are great. Looks like a wonderful time for you all.

  16. What fun! I love the beautiful view from your backyard. What a blessing.


  17. Miałaś z pewnością chwile radości i zabawy z po bytu dzieci. Pozdrawiam.
    You were certainly moments of joy and fun of being with the children. Yours.

  18. I just love the view from your pool, Debbie. Looks like the boys had a great time outdoing each other. :)

  19. Sounds like a great day and those are some pretty impressive cannonballs.

  20. Would you please adopt me? ;0
    Glad you had fun.

  21. I love it when my kids come home for a visit too. I'm the happiest when all the chicks are in the brooder!!! Great capture on those #10 splashes. Can't wait to see the spread you put on!

  22. Can I send my daughter to your house? She loves swimming! Isn't it fun when you have family around? I love it. It looks like y'all had a wonderful time and I can't wait to see what you fixed to eat!

  23. FAMILY. FAMILY. FUN. MORE FAMILY. FUN. That's all we need!

  24. What Fun! Looks like a great day. Any day with a game of Uno is a good day though :)

    What a view you have from the pool. Just gorgeous :)

  25. It really is nice when the kids come home, isn't it?
