I always say that every single year at the pool feels completely different than the year before. This was no exception.
First trips to the pool in years past here - 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011...
All the obligatory mom snapping photo opps before I actually put my phone down and got in.
First, this happened. They BOTH wanted their own tubes. WHAT?! No one is insisting on riding with me? No one is complaining this is boring? Lazy river win. 2017 is the year Mom gets her own tube BACK at the pool!
Cool and content, floating around the river on her own.
Then, THEN, this happened! I knew Cass met the height requirement for the big slides AND that the lifeguards would catch her at the bottom too but was unsure if she'd want to do them with Troy. Guess what?! She did! I went up the first time with her and then she and Troy did it several times on their own. 2017. The summer Mom sits (or stands, let's be real) at the bottom of the slides and watches BOTH her kids shoot out.
When we were done with the lazy river and slides, we returned to this sight! The pool all to ourselves. Unreal! Fifteen minutes of bliss until they closed.
This sight, on the other hand, was NOT a surprise. She was completely wiped!
