Last week Dave set up the pool. Exciting does not even come close to describing the feeling in our house. I could have asked pretty much anything of the kids and they would have done it in order to have a chance at that pool. I know that will wear off as the summer goes by but in the meantime I'm using it! LOL! The kids whizzed through their chores even using teamwork! Wow-zah!

The boys worked as a team to get their chores completed. They celebrated with hugs and exclaims of, "You're the best brother ever!" Music to my ears!

Finally in!

Princess LOVED the water!

After swimming for awhile Sweet Pea took Princess inside. Bugs was done as well & ready to get warm. I asked Boo & Elvis to scrub the outside of the pool as it was pretty dirty from being stored all winter. They did a great job & were rewarded with another dip in the pool. This time I joined them. It was chilly but amazingly refreshing especially after working in the garden for an hour.

Princess was so tuckered she fell asleep before Sweet Pea could even get her out of her swimsuit.
The kids had a great time in the pool. Later that day I rewarded Sweet Pea with a free swim time alone in the pool since she had been such a great help with Princess.
