Pool Time!

On Friday we decided to check out the community pool that is down the street from us. It is quite a steal: 50 cents for children 17 and younger and $2 for adults. It was great. It had the beach front pool for the children which Blake loves. He hates being sprayed by water so he stayed away from the water attractions. It was quite an adventurous night as one little kid almost drowned (his parents weren't even in the pool with him and he was like 4) and another kid gashed his eye and needed stitches. Both times we had to get out of the pool for a few minutes. We will certainly be going back to this pool in the future. Sadly enough, it was 107 outside but we were all a little cold and Blake was even shivering. I guess it hasn't taken us long to acclimate to our new weather. 
Blake running to get in the pool. He was SO excited.  It was a bit colder than our pools at the apartment complex. Blake took a little longer to get in. But once he did, he loved it! Blake had just run towards the slides in the background. Joe went down these slides a dozen or so times and Blake thought it was great to watch him go down. Unfortunately, he thought he could go down them too. He had a fit when we wouldn't let him. What bad parents we are for not letting our child drown. Really.

They have pools like this in Vegas and I think they are so fun! I am glad Blake liked it. He looks so cute in his swimming suit.
