This is so sad, it might just make you cry...

Today Jennica was going over to her friend's house to swim. Aaron REALLY wanted to go too, but I wasn't going to let him tag along on Jennica's play date.

He was sooooo upset I wouldn't let him go. It was so hot and sunny outside, and Aaron loves the water so much.

Usually we have a decent sized, blow up, pool for the kids in the summer. Last year the pool developed quite a few holes, so we threw it out at the end of the summer. I've been planning to get a new one, but haven't gotten around to it. I've also kind of been putting it off because it always damages the lawn so much.

Anyway, Aaron was so upset, I told him we would look when we got home and see if we had an old pool I could fill up for him.

Poor kid, this is all I could find. He insisted on a floaty too.

Oh my gosh!- I'm officially inviting Aaron over to swim! I GUESS the other two can come too.. ;} You pick the day, or we can all go swim at the Meridian pool. Poor guy, but he looks happy--like the kid happily digging away in the pile of manure, looking for the horse--he's an optimist! What a great kid! BTW-I have a large rectangular pool you can have.

It's so much fun having a 2 month old who thinks this is a good time to be awake!

well... when life gives you lemons, make lemonade :) Prime example of a childs ability to make the best of a situation. This is so sweet to watch. A pint sized puddle to play in!

Poor thing. It was funny, but I kept thinking about how he was trying to make it work all by himself and the thing was so small. What a cutie!
