We had friends over this weekend for a barbecue and swim. The kids had the best time in the pool. Wyatt had already spent a couple of hours earlier in the afternoon and was content to sit on the "floatie". One of the little girls however, love to be tossed into the water. She has it down, tucks into a ball and off she goes. "Do it again, do it again " was all we heard. Wyatt is getting good in the water too. He understands holding his breathe and likes to go under the water now. He is automatically doing the kicking and arm movements for a dog paddle. I am pretty sure he will be swimming in the next few weeks. That will be a relief to me, I am always a little worried about him doing something when an adult isn't around, even though I know he can't get into the pool without the ladder. That always goes into the pool when the adults get out.
I had to show the grill full for the first time. It holds a lot of food, but we made a good effort to eat it all. I made fresh peach cobbler. Ray had picked peaches at an orchard down in Belle Plaine on Thursday.
