Happy 4th

We spent the afternoon at the Sullivans and most of that time was passed in their pool. Their very hot 94 degree pool because it's been freakin' hot in the valley for the past month. While it wasn't exactly refreshing it was very relaxing. Think jacuzzi without the bubbles. Anyway, it was a great opportunity to work on the boys' swimming skills and we actually got D to swim with a vest on without us supporting him. Once he got over his fear that kid just tooled around the pool. At one point he passed one of the guests, a girl named Maggie who's about 10 years old and he said to her: So, you're swimming by yourself? And she replied: yeah. He nodded his head knowingly and said: Yeah, me too. J was jumping off the side of the pool and into my arms. Well, he would hold onto my hands and then jump but he got water splashed up in his face a few times and he just snorted it out of his nose, wiped his eyes and said "again!". He even put his whole face in the water a few times.
We got to the Sullivans at around 3:00pm and were in the pool by 3:30 and with the exception of taking a break to eat dinner, were in there until 8:30pm. Not surprisingly, the boys fell asleep on the way home.
