How Cool is the Pool?

My boy were so excited last week when I declared that it was warm enough to get out their swimming pool. They were literally dancing with joy.


They played in the pool late that afternoon, even though the water was a little bit chilly. They had a blast and didn't seem to mind the water temperature!

The water never got a chance to get warm because it was cold and it rained ...and rained... and RAINED! We were so bummed out! Saturday I emptied the pool and told the boys we would try again this week.

Finally it has warmed up, so today the pool is full and the water is warming up. While Eli was taking a nap this afternoon I told Jonah "go outside and check the temperature of the water in the pool". I wanted him to tell me if he thought the water was getting warmer.

After a few minutes Jonah came downstairs with our digital thermometer (dripping wet) in his hand to show me what the pool's "temperature" was! It cracked me up that he took me so literally!

What a funny boy.

  1. We have been having the same issues with rain and cold. It is not good.

    But your boys look like they are enjoying themselves.

  4. Fun pics! You did ask him to check the temp after all, LOL! :) And yes, they are sooo literal! I remember my son when he was 3. He stood next to our front door and called out to me, "Mommy, look! I am the boy next door!"

  6. UGH... I don't know what's worse...rain and cold or HOT & dripping humidity. That's what we have here in PA. HORRIBLE.

    Glad you are finally getting a chance to get out there to play.

  8. That's hilarious. I'm always telling Dumb Dad to ease up on the sarcasm because they just don't get it yet. Don't want him to ruin their innocence anyway. Looks like a blast!
