Simple Pleasures ~

~ ~ ~ WELCOME ~ ~ ~
Thursdays are normally "Jake" days so after work I headed over to pick him up. It is so much fun spending time with a five year old. They get such pleasure from the simplest of things. I could hear him giggling in the bathroom and I knew what he was up to. He finds it hysterical to rearrange my band boxes.
Since it was a beautiful day, we headed for the pool. He even talked me in to wearing a bathing suit ~ that doesn't happen often. Then he talked me in to getting in to the water! I am one of those people who go in slowly rather than taking the plunge and getting it over with. It is just so painful that way.
Jake soon be swimming like a fish. He is fearless and can now swim a good ten feet under water. I don't think the goggles keep the water out of his eyes, but he just thinks they are so cool. At five, his dad was already on the local swim team.
Pretending to pout.
Practicing his underwater somersault.
Just having fun :-)
Thanks so much for dropping by. Please come again soon.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Hey, I think the goggles are cool too!
It's great that he so enjoys the water.

I notice there are no pictures of you in the bathing suit!

Those photos are precious! Love that red hair! The pool is certainly the place to be in this kind of weather.........I was wondering too if there would be a picture of you in your bikini! ( They'd have to kill me first before I'd share one of me in a bath. suit LOL!!)
