Swimming pools in the heat of summer are great blessings.
With gas prices rising almost daily, we opted for a different kind of "vacation". Recently, we took a mini vacation -- as in, we rented a cabin at our local campground and "camped" overnight.
We swam in the pool and went out to eat, all the things we would have done IF we had left town. The kids were happy and we were happy to save a lot of money!
Today we took the kids to the public pool to cool off from our 90 degree weather. Scott and EmmaLece got brave and ventured away from the edge! Robby tried to pass his deep end test... he needs a little more practice. We had a fun few hours enjoying the pool! I keep thinking back to pioneer times and they only had rivers and lakes and the oceans to cool off in, I'm so grateful to have swimming pools! I feel safer knowing where the bottom is!
