Swimming Fun

Last week when I took the boys to the farm, the owner told them that if they came this Tuesday at about 5pm, she would let them go swimming in the pool. The boys have been looking forward to it ever since and so yesterday we headed out to the farm.

It took them only seconds to get into the pool. These boys enjoy the water. Though neither are really strong swimmers, they both can swim

Brandon is trying to help Jordan sit in a tube. Unfortunately it wasn't fully blown up and I didn't think they would be successful.
However, where there's a will, there's a way and Brandon was kind of holding the tube and pushing Jordan across the pool.
They had fun trying to make that half blown up tube hold Jordan. There was a lot of laughter and Jordan yelling, "I'm going to fall in."
Brandon takes a break from pushing Jordan and uses a noodle to have a little fun of his own. He loves the water and would swim everyday if he could.
The boys both had a great time and before we knew it our time at the farm was over. They did enjoy some time out in the water and the sunshine. A nice breeze was blowing and there was no humidity, so it was a great day to be in the great outdoors.
In other news, Susie at Susie's Space presented me with the cute award below. Thank you, Susie. I love it!
I would like to pass this award on to everyone who has commented on my posts this month. I enjoy each and every comment. I've been blessed with so many blogging friends and am thankful for each of you. ~Blessings, Mary~

  1. This really looks like the boys had a grand ol' time in the pool! I would need a tube too 'cause I can not swim a lick. And as much porous fat on my body you'd think I could float, but nope, I sink, and sink quickly. [kidding!] I don't even go deeper than my waist. If I can't STAND with my head above water, I don't go in.

    Thanks for the award. That is really nice of you to extend it to all of your blog friends. I will post it on my blog this week sometime.

    I just sent you a reply to your email. Did anyone tell you lately, you're super? Well...you are!!!

  8. What wonderful summer fun! The boys are obviously having a great time. My kids loved the water too and I remember taking them to a lake close by many times during the summer months. I taught the first four to swim there,and would you believe that I never learned how myself!
    Your pictures made me smile.

  11. I'm glad you are having fun with the boys too. Our leave for a months vacation soon and I'm not sure we will survive that long without seeing them.

  12. What fun to be a child! I can remember my kids swimming like that! When we were kids, we swam in the creek! We had a pool put in for our kids so I could watch them every day, but ended up having neighborhood kids to watch every day! But it was fun just to see kids having fun!

    I received that same award from Pea, but I am going to add your name to it, too! Thank you!

    I try to get through all my blogs twice a week, but I don't know how I got so far behind in reading your posts! But, eventually, I will always get around and make my visits.

    I believe The Poet is your father, from what I have gathered from reading his comments. I love his poems and poetry! 90 years old and blogging! That is wonderful!!! He signed my guestbook with a young family photo of you all when you were just a child. I thought how thoughtful of him!

    (((HUGS)))
