Hold your breath & kick.

highlights:
-floating in the soothing saltwater.
- impromptu BBQ with great friends & all my favorite foods. (steak, fresh grilled corn, steamed veggies, and watermelon)
-watching our little ones swim and swap pool toys. (Hudson wanted Easton's pirates, and Easton wanted Hudson's trains. Go figure.)
-attempting underwater somersaults and handstands.
-Pamela and I enjoying our "pool boys", otherwise known as husbands, who delivered amenities with smiles. (just like old times)

We heart swimming.

That pool looks so refreshing. Those little guys look cute in their floaties. Love that red hat Easton has on. Hudsons curls, so cute.

Looks like so much fun! Hudson is such a cutie patootie...and quite the dare-devil from the sounds of it!

Caleb hasn't quite learned to love swimming too much yet...with me anyway (I INSIST he wears his lifevest so he won't sink!) But I think he has a better time swimming with his daddy sans live vest (who has much more faith in his ability to not drop baby in pool than I do)!

Aw, Hudson's sun-kissed cheeks are so cute! I have yet to go swimming this summer, so I'm a bit jealous!

Pool Boy said...

This was a fun day with friends. Hudson really had the "climb out of the pool, run to the edge, and jump" thing down. I was just trying to keep up with our little guy. Oh, I'm your pool boy!?! Like I have said before perfect day equals family + friends + great food + fun.

LOVE YOU!!!

Gotta love good pool time in the heat of the South! Even better that it is saltwater!!

Diana Smith said...

we have been swimming too sooo much! But Olivia doesnt like the water as much as Hudson does, maybe cause its not super warm!! The water looks so beautiful and so do you!

Sarah Frills4Thrills said...

you are such a cool mom! i only remember ONE time that I've seen my mom in the pool (and that's having been on MULTIPLY tropical and desert vacations) and I had literally begged her to get in. I loved it. AND I've always sworn that I'd be a fun pool mom : )

Breeanna @ a brilliant melody said...

Looks like you guys are enjoying summer! What a fun day!

Katie said...

I went swimming today too! But swimming with Hudson was probably 10x more fun. Guaranteed!

Meri said...

I WISH it was warm enough here to swim- MN hasn't gotten the memo about "summer" this week... Looks like fun!

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

Oh these pictures are so adorable! Looks like everyone was having an awesome time and the food sounds so delicious!!

Victoria / Justice Pirate said...

oh goodness I want to go swimming so much now. I love those little floaty things for little kids. I used them too. I don't know what I'm going to do this year now that both of my boys have outgrown those! Great shots. I smell the bbq in my head.

Amylou said...

you take the most beautiful photographs Ashley! I really enjoyed your post on Janette's blog and I love coming over here to view your pictures everyday! You have such a beautiful family!
oh and I love that they switched toys! So cute!

Pink Sun Drops said...

Ooh, saltwater pools are amazing. And so are pool boys - those are the best kind of husbands ;) .

Victoria said...

Aww this is toooo cute !! :)

Shalyn said...

There is NOTHING cuter than adorable little toddlers in the pool- love it!

Raven said...

how the heck did I miss all these posts???? must have been when I was on my deathbed at home. But I'm here now, that's all that counts, right?? :)

LOVE pool pics. How does Hudson like the water? Gunner LOVED it last year, we would put on his floaties and take him to the pool and he would jump in and out all day long, all by himself, swim deep end to shallow, back and forth, couldnt get him out. This year? I guess he forgot he could swim, cause he wont get in. I'm about to just throw him in and make him figure it out, but my husband says that would be mean.

ha!! Love what your pool boy had to say. Everyone needs a sexy pool boy. Even better when the pool boy is your husband cause that means you can have sex with him HA!!
