It has been SO unbelievably hot here for the last week while my brother was visiting. We tried to escape to the pool as often as we could to cool off, probably not often enough. But the times that we made it, were so wonderful... so so wonderful. I love seeing the reaction on the kids' faces, the moment that I tell them we're heading to the pool. The moment we get into our suits and sprayed down with suntan lotion (even though it takes FOREVER to get that done), you can see the excitement bubbling up in them. Finn, especially, completely freaks out (in happiness) when he sees the pool/splash pad. All of them have such a love for the water... the pool is their happy place... and I'm okay with that.
