Pool Fun

Today was a gorgeous summer day. I went to the pool with my sister. We hung out and read magazines and talked, while the kids splashed and played in the water. Here are some photos from our relaxing afternoon. Christina playing with her water doll. She has a
December birthday, so up until now it has been just a
bath toy.Christina and her cousin Joshua playing together at the pool.

Dave showing his muscles, cousin Jenny, and Andrew. They all have passed their swim test so they can go all over the pool. Days like this make me wish summer could last all year round. Sometimes I want to pause time; the kids are growing so fast!

Stink Bag

So the other day I was on a walk with my cutie dog Pepper. We usually walk about 2 miles. Well, I must have been distracted because I realized I had dropped one of her poop bags. I looked behind me, and it was no where in sight. I had no desire to retrace my steps to find it, but I still felt bad leaving a bag of "stuff" on the sidewalk.
Fast forward two days, and I decided to go on my usual walk again. I was happy to find the bag of dog leftovers on a street corner. I must have dropped it when I was rounding the corner. Well, trying to be a good neighbor, I picked up the bag from two days ago. I continued on my walk.
As I kept walking, this jogger ran past me and gave me a strange look. I looked down, and the dog bag was leaking. It was all over my shirt, pants, and legs. Ugh!! It had rained the night before, and I didn't realize the bag had a leak and had filled with water. I found a nearby trashcan and discarded the bag. I don't usually like to use other people's trashcans, but I was not about to carry the bag and leaking contents the rest of the way home!
Anyway, I made it home with the doggy, told my husband my disgusting story, and hopped into the shower.
Lesson learned!
