From Wednesday through the rest of the week we spent every single day at the neighborhood pool with my nieces and nephew. This isn't a normal neighborhood pool. Their neighborhood is 790+ houses and the amenities are more that of a country club. There is a clubhouse which has absolutely delicious food! (We got take out from there for lunch one day and ate at the pool. What a life!) And there is also basketball courts, a weight room, volleyball courts, and a golf club. All this to say, that this is not a normal neighborhood pool. So we really felt like we were on vacation when we went.
It was so nice because there weren't tourists around and we pretty much had the pool to ourselves every day! We had ample lounge chairs (not that we had much chance to lounge. Ha!) and each day were able to snag a covered table for all of our food and lunch items. The kids absolutely loved the pool.
Adalyn's cousins coaxed Adalyn to go down the slide on Sunday and so every day we went to the pool she gravitated to the slide. She did go down it once by herself but preferred going down it with someone. Her poor cousins went up those steps to the slide countless times. I'm thankful they were so patient.
Adalyn loved swimming! We got her a Puddle Jumper life jacket and it was well worth the money. We didn't have to worry about her ever going under the water. She was able to kick her legs and toodle around the pool on her own. She even got brave and would jump off the side of the pool. (Of course I didn't get a picture of it!) Then there were some bigger kids jumping in without life jackets and she crawled up next to them and started jumping in when they did. Then she had to take her life jacket off and jump in without it. Jonathan was right there to help her. I was so proud of her for getting so brave!
Boy cousins! Cayden has a pretty awesome boy cousin to look up to! Caleb was so sweet with Cayden. He learned how to give a bottle and how to feed Cayden and Cayden just loved him! (Adalyn felt the same way!)
These pictures were not even staged. They were just hanging together and I just had to snap the pictures!
One night we went shopping and Jonathan caught this cute pic.
Adalyn also loved their dog, Bailey. Bailey is the sweetest dog and loves playing. My brother showed Adalyn how to clap to get Bailey wound up, so Adalyn would walk in the room clapping looking for Bailey. So cute!
Ok, I still have a ton of pictures from the week so it looks like I'll be making this series into three parts:)
