Stayin' Cool in the Pool

I took all three boys to the pool last week and we had THE BEST time!  They all did so well - Owen was perfectly content in his float the entire time, Drew stayed close to me and was sweet as pie, and Clayton was super helpful with his little brothers.  We stayed for 3 whole hours!  It was the perfect pool day.  :)

I know that we are in for lots of not-so-perfect pool days this summer.  I'm certain that O will grow to hate his float, Drew will get braver and make me a nervous wreck, and Clayton will want to be off doing his own thing instead of entertaining his brothers.  So... I felt the need to properly document the perfect pool day.  :)

Two years ago, I bought a refurbished underwater camera for cheap and it has turned out to be a great investment!  (THIS is a similar one.)  We have submerged it a hundred times and it has done really well.  It takes pretty decent pictures, too.  :)

This boy is part fish - I swear he is!  ;)
Clayton asked to borrow the camera for a bit and promised to be super careful.  He came back with some lovely pictures, as you can imagine.  I especially loved his self portraits.  Ha!

An underwater view of the Nanny McPhee mouth.  ;)  I kinda miss that crazy tooth...
I have no words...
This is so typical for the Carpenter clan - Clayton being a goof ball, Drew looking on and making mental notes about how to copy what his big bro is doing, and Owen just trying to stay afloat.  Ha!
Hoping for many more fun memories at the pool during Summer 2012!!!
