Indian Summer




We don't have any big plans this weekend. But, we are in the middle of a heatwave, so I know we will be visiting the pool. It's pretty nice, there's a small kiddie pool, for when the grandkids are visiting and a big pool for me. (Did I mention I love to swim?)

Top picture: My grandson Ben. He loves that he can stand up in and walk across the kiddie pool. But prefers being in the big pool, because, well, because he's a boy and it's more dangerous.

Middle picture: Shot of clubhouse and big pool, with Ben's head up front. You can't tell from this picture but those lounge chairs are padded and super-comfy and if you can find a spot in the shade it's a great place to read a book or doze off.

Bottom picture: My son holding Ben. Aren't they sweet?

I hope you all have a lovely September weekend.

That sounds so great! Summer is completely gone here.

Great pics. Glad you're getting a few extra days of pool weather.

Nothing like a nice warm summer send-off into fall. That water looks delicious and your son and grandson are adorable!

Hope you enjoy you swim! It's still in the 90s in Jacksonville, so we're still swimming and the pool temperature is perfect!

Cute pictures! It's hot here, too, but now I think the weather is turning (raining right now.) Have a great weekend!

Wish I was there floating around in the pool with a cool drink and a good book!

Thanks for sharing your pics and family. Wishing you a relaxing and wonderful weekend.

Looks like a great way to spend a hot day! Our temps were in the
90's yesterday and a swim in a pool would have been nice:). Your grandson, Ben, is adorable!

Blessings,

It's nice and cool this morning and overcast but I think it's supposed to warm up next week for our usually weather for this time of year. We are relaxing at the country house.

It's a crisp autumn Saturday here in New England, perfect for a long walk at a local harvest fair. Enjoy your weekend!

We had the heat on last night -- this looks absolutely wonderful!

Jemi Fraser said...

Nice! Our fall has been warmer than our summer so far, but the leaves are turning, so it won't last. Enjoy those moments :)

You'll probably get to swim for a few more months in Southern Cal. I miss that part of Cal. life.

I know what you mean about the HOT WEATHER. I don't go to the pool like I should anymore. I stay inside with the AIR on. Your grandson and son look adorable. I can't imagine being a grandma quite yet, although with my age, I could.

What a nice pool and clubhouse! I love to swim too and that's why I don't want summer to end. (93 degrees) here tomorrow. Definitely a pool day. Your son is so handsome and your grandson is precious! Enjoy the pool days, while you can!

Shirley Wells said...

Aw, lovely pictures.

Wonderful that you have pool days still. I'm very envious. Enjoy them!

It's almost winter weather around here. Ben's a cutie pie and I hear you about boys and danger!

We have one of those floatie things that Ben's in (top picture) Deaglan hates it - I think because it contains him. Sounds like a great place you live in.
