First Swim Day of the Year

It's hard to believe this is our third town pool season. It took 2 years to build the pool and the anticipation was excruciating! When they finally got the pool finished, Bishop stood up at the pulpit (he's on the town council) and announced that "We've finally saved up enough water to fill the pool".

Funny, funny man.

And he was probably not totally off base considering that we're always hurting for water a little bit in this part of the country.

The pool has been a big part of our summer and the first day is always quite an event.

The expressions say it all.

Jaxon got so many points from the reading program at school that he was able to buy this GINORMOUS walrus at the end of the year party. He pretty much just let every other kid at the pool play with it, I had to go and get it back in order to take pictures with it.

Cute walrus, huh.

There's only one problem - it took forever to blow up and now we don't really want to deflate it. And we'd just about have to build an addition in order to house the thing.

I hope it doesn't have some kind of accident, you know, like meeting up with a pair of scissors or a stray needle.

That would be a shame.
