Pool Time

While spring is just springing for most of you, here in South Florida, it's already early summer, so this weekend we've made the most of the early summer weather (warm, sunny, but not yet too hot and humid), and we've had a busy weekend, mostly spent outdoors.

Yesterday, we went to the park to join our friends for a birthday picnic: We played croquet, ate grilled burgers, threw frisbees, sat in the sun and socialized. (Everyone else got to drink keg beer; I drank bottled water.)

Then, today we were back out in the sun for a day by the pool with our friends for more bbq-ing and general pool-time-fun. We brought Scooter along with us today, and he got some pool time in as well. Here's he and Jerry, and in the background, our friend Ryan -- who "looks" like he's thinking deep thoughts but is probably just sleeping with his eyes open. Here's Scooter, the swimming dog:
And here's the shake after he got out of the pool:
Thankfully, a day full of sun and swimming makes for a very tired pup, and he's been crashed out ever since we got home (actually, technically, it has been proven that after a day in the sun, neither he nor Jerry can remain awake for the short car ride home). The day in the sun made me sleepy too, so I took a nap when we got home as well.
Now, I'm just waiting for that sun to set and I think I will go out for my standard 3 miler.

*Sigh*...if only weekends could be a touch longer. Oh well, I can't complain: I have about 2 weeks of class left this term, and then it's truly summer time for me!

I think weekends should be 4 days and the weekdays should be 3. But that's just me.

For real. The majority of our lives should be spent not working and enjoying life. Let's contact the necessary people about this. :)

I would be thrilled with a 3 day weekend, even if I had to work 10 hour days to get it.

I always think the weekend goes to fast too and I even had an extra day this time!

My dog loves to swim in the ocean. Bet Scooter would love that !!!

runner26 said...

yay for summer coming up!! lots of pooling and beaching ahead!

glad to hear the running is still going well (minus the poop incident, but that can happen to anyone) ;)

I'm so jealous that your dog swims! My dog will go on the steps of the pool and eat the water, but that's about it. We've discussed just throwing her in and seeing what happens...

I love your pregnant belly in the last post! It seems to have sprung over night!!! And 6 months along already? Wow, seems like I JUST read the post where you announced the news...
