We spent the long Labor Day weekend doing nothing, mostly because money is tight until payday this week and it was blazing hot outside. We did venture out to play in the pool at 8 a.m. on Monday, which is kind of sick but was also totally awesome. At 8 a.m. on a holiday Monday, most of the world is still quietly huddled inside trying to sleep in or making a big breakfast to start the day. We, however, had a full pool, breakfast down the hatch 2 hours prior, and a long day stretching before us with many hours of sunshine and hot. So we splashed and we played and we laughed and we (I) took pictures. Both kids really love the water, with Luca actually starting the requests to play in the pool at 6:15 that morning. Luca mostly likes to lay on her tummy and pretend to be a mermaid, hold the hose and spray her brother, or sit in the water and play with toys.
Rohan, on the other hands enjoys being splashed, splashing, and jumping all over the place. He's a natural-born water baby, and I like to think that has something to do with being born a Pisces and born in water, but I can't be sure. Either way, this kid begs for baths. Baths.
When they were done splashing and crashing and soaking up the water, the got into mud. Because, really...what more can you expect from a 18 month old and a 3 year old.
I love watching them play in the pool. It can take me from tired and cranky to laughing my butt off in a matter or minutes. And I love these moments, too:
