Labor Day Weekend not only ends the Summer Sandwich of long weekends, but it also means that it's the last weekend that our community pool is open. We love the pool and that all we have to do is walk out of our back yard gate to be there. We take full advantage of it in the summer and since it has been so hot, we took full advantage of it the last weekend.
To help us enjoy the last weekend of the summer, the Martin boys came over to play. The pool was practically empty and the boys took full advantage.
Owen was all smiles.
Cole was all smiles too!
Kellan was all... about the snacks.
This boy eats and eats and eats.
He's the first to bust into the snack bag and belly up to the meal table.
There is no shortage of food going into this guy, but he must have his Grandpa Garner and Uncle Shane's metabolism because he is turning into a muscular little string bean.
Kellan enjoyed time to himself behind the scenes with his snacks. He also found a hair tie that served as a bracelet. You just never know what fun you will find at the pool.
Kellan and Cole found that there was a great driving track around the kiddie pool.
Speaking of great finds. Oliver and Owen found a boat in the lost and found. This raft was a huge hit!! We may have to buy some for ourselves next year.
Oliver spends much of his time with his head in the water, like this. He loves it. I wonder if he sees any fish down there?

A Real Kid Party!!

That afternoon, we all had some much needed rest and relaxation and when the boys got up from their naps, they were dressed for home in their fruit of the loom. We also had a visitor in our back yard. He walked in and right as I went to take this photo, he lifted his tail and pooped.
In our backyard!
What does he think this is, a pit stop?
Oh well, it was fun to have him stroll through to say hello.
We had a great Saturday with the Martin's. We're sad that the pool is about to close, but it's not closed yet!
