Here we go again… second day of play! There was volleyball going on…
After each game into the pool to cool off and water to rehydrate and get ready for whomever else calls out to take on the winners. David was a definite plus for anyone that played with him because he is one tall young man.
Melanie is reaching for her nephew, Kaeden, to help him into the pool. There are very strict rules that no one goes into the pool without an adult outside with them and, amazingly, all the kids understand that rule. When Kaeden goes in by himself, without someone helping him, he always gets in his ring and along with his floaties on. All of the little ones that don’t yet swim well are limited to the shallow end of the pool unless they are with an adult and all have their floaties on their arms, even in the shallow end.
Grandma to most of the little ones, my niece. Her kids are some of my greats and her grandchildren are my great-greats. Lord, that makes me feel old. I diapered most of the people that you’ve seen in these photos of the last couple of days.
Not bad for being a grandma! Nancy has always loved having a pool to play in since she was little. This is her first in-ground pool and thankfully it’s a big one because three of her five children have children and Jeremy’s fiancé has a daughter that we all consider his. Her and Steve’s fifth child is adopted and is only four so it will be a while before Melissa adds to the grandchild brood.
Jeremy, come home again as soon as possible… we all have missed you and I enjoyed getting to meet Heather and Haylee. What a wonderful addition to our family and what a great reason for us all to be together for some summer fun and catching up with each other. There may not be a beach in Oklahoma but there sure are a mess of family that loves you all.
