Summer is finally here! Our temperatures hit 100 degrees here in Salem yesterday and the kids were so excited to get out and play in the water. We set up a swimming pool in the backyard and brought Marshall's slide outside and set it up to land in the water. Next door, our friends the Pools (fitting last name for all of our water fun!) also had a pool set up. Their son, Etai, is just 2 months older than Marshall and they are great friends. We spent the day with Marshall and Etai going back and forth between our yards playing in sprinklers and swimming pools and eating lots of snacks. Eliza loved the water too and tried hard to keep up with the boys, a difficult feat when she can only crawl these days. She had a lot of fun in the pool though. She really wanted to swim by herself- you'll see in one of the pictures she is practically crawling out of her float and she kept trying to crawl into the pool on her own. She loved sticking her face under the water too - we couldn't believe how much she loved having a wet face. We can tell that both of the kids will have a great time at swim lessons in a few weeks. Marshall and Eliza were both exhausted by the end of the day, but Marshall woke up ready to head out again today!
