Summer Time!

The weather finally started to heat up around here so we are experiencing our first summer in Portland! Mornings are pretty icky looking, as usual, but by afternoon the sun is out, it's nice and warm, and you can't just stay inside! The last few weekends the family spent time a large majority of time just relaxing and having a blast at the pool!
Days are long, popsicles are their own food group, and grilling out is a must!
The sun doesn't set till 9 or later so that means we have plenty of time to play outside in the evenings. And sometimes you gotta say "screw it" and venture outside at 11 at night and go down the slide a few times to burn off some of that extra energy!
This is the Little Jedi's third summer, but second living in the sun/water.
I have been taking him to the pool most every day or at least every other day.
We both enjoy it and he is dead tired and beyond ready for a nap by the time we get back to the house. I had been looking for some sort of floaty type thing to put him in so I could better keep hands on him in the water…but I couldn't find any sort of seated floater ANYWHERE! I finally found one pair of water wings and got those figuring if they didn't work for him I would just return them and order something different online.
After a few unsure moments in the water with the wings on he was already on his way to mastering the doggy paddle! He even pushes mine/dadas hands away from him so he can swim independent! My little guy is just getting so big so fast.

These are just some of the photos from the last few weekends hanging by the pool that I love!
