Memorial Day 2010

What better way to spend Memorial Day than in the pool and with family!
So we loaded up the suits, sunscreen and puddle jumpers and made the short trek to Gram and Papa's house...

We just had to show off our pool skills that we learned this summer!

I think at first EVERY ONE was a little nervous about Matt's ambitious jumping... but it was soon clear that Matty Moo is a high flyer! He just jumps and tucks those legs - getting TONS of air!

Addie and I couldn't be out done by the BABY of the family so we perfected our jumping skills as well! I even got Gram to toss me the ball mid-air...

What started out as a little pool time and a BBQ - turned into 6 (yes, SIX) hours of swimming with a few little breaks for hot dogs, Popsicles, and Jelly Belly jelly beans!

We had water gun fights, too!

Dad even got in on the action and gave us all dolphin rides!

Sissy showed off how much she loves to swim with her face in the water!

And she's pretty proud of herself when she comes up for air! Just a few weeks ago - sissy bug didn't like to put her face in the water!

Is there anything better than a Popsicle in the pool? Mom doesn't even have to tell us to watch the drips!

I sat over in my own corner... I wanted to make sure that no one stole mine!

Just when we thought we were safe... PAPA came out of no where with his water gun!

What a perfect day! And, I promise Gram and Mom were there too... As always, mom was the photographer... so she's never in the pics... and someone once told me - NEVER post a pic of a lady in her swimsuit unless she's totally approved of it... AND... to ensure "favorite four year old grandson" status... I didn't want to even ask!

Look at this sneaky little thing.... Addie Mae - I see that water gun you are hiding under the water. Just remember - what comes around goes around!

As you can tell, we had tons of fun! And thanks to all the military personnel out there who have sacrificed so much for all of us so that we can have weekends like this!
