Today we spent all day at a pool in Ankeny, owned by a family in the Colyer's church who let us use it when they go to their lake house. We've spent many holidays here over the past couple of years and always have so much fun (as in, I get to actually lay out by the pool with a magazine during Dawson's nap while Bennett is fully entertained by a grandparent. Heaven!!) Today was no exception. The weather was perfect and Bennett spent 4 HOURS in the pool with Poppy. For a little while he had the undivided attention of both his grandpas and was having a ball. He could even touch the bottom in the shallow end on his tippy toes! I couldn't believe it. I can still picture him so clearly there two years ago when he was on the pool steps as a 1 year old and was just stepping out into the water, trusting his Nana to catch him. Dawson took on that role this year. He loved the water and would start crying every time Judie pulled him out.
Of course Jon had to find something for Bennett to do a death-defying jump off of. The day just wouldn't be complete without a Parkour video of Bennett!
One tuckered out little boy:
