Being outside, hanging out at the beach or having a barbecue while the kids are in the pool are things we do a lot in the summer. All the electronics go off and its family time. If you have little ones at one you can relate to the Xbox, Wii, tablets, laptops etc. etc. Turn it all off! Grab some bubbles, water balloons, and play outside. I am not much of beach girl but my kids love it. They play in the sand and water all day. We pack a cooler and spend the day relaxing. Those days my phone turns off too so its just us. I love it that way.  

 My oldest is turning T-E-N on May 27th. Where did all those years ago! He is excited. Me, well I am turning 3-0 the first of June. Not so excited. Haha But I love celebrating birthdays, ice cream cakes are awesome right?

We added two more swimmers to the big pool, they can reach the bottom fine and love being like the BIG KIDS. No more kiddie pools at this house! Swimming lessons for them this summer, they are eager to learn. They splash around till they get wrinkles. Big on safety folks, remember to always take the ladder out when no one is in the pool even if you are coming right back. Put it far enough away where they can't carry it to put it in the pool. It only takes moments for accidents to happen. These little guys know the rules. We spend a lot of time in the pool. I created a poster and cute cards for them. I couldn't resist sharing it with all of you. To download them stop by here
