“The water doesn't know how old you are.” ― Dara Torres

Despite algae, and black water, and green water, and yellow spots and more algae, we have truly enjoyed having a pool for the first time this Summer! {especially after we broke down and hired a pool guy!} I never imagined that our family would have a pool…and, it seriously is still a little surreal to me that we get to walk outside and hop in the pool! It’s hilarious to me that the first summer I’ve ever had a pool was surely the coolest summer in the history of Texas…but, we have had PLENTY of warm days to enjoy it…and many more to come! We love that we got to share it with so many people this summer. Take a look…

Relaxing as I watched them splash and jump and dive quickly became one of my happy places! And, swimming does have a way of making you feel like a kid again…handstand and flips just never get old. 7.14 Iphone 018
