Pool season: OVER.
It's been a colder-than-usual summer, and we haven't spent as much time at the pool this summer as we usually do. But still! Memorial Day- Labor Day are some of our favorite days of the year because we all love the pool.
So! Even though it was 70 and breezy and also overcast, were some of the first happy assholes in the place at noon on Monday, and we almost made it to the final whistle.
I read a creepy book, drank some vodka lemonades, and took pictures of the kids upside down.
This sign at the concession stand SLAYED me. Apparently kids were sending their kids up t get them drinks on Sunday, which BRILLIANT. But also illegal, even in Wisconsin.
Last day selfie!
At the end of the final adult swim of the season, the kids did a dance to Hey Baby and then jumped in, which is their tradition. It's pretty cute.
Then, you know I took a couple more diving board pics.
As the afternoon drew to a close, Ben started hurling the kids into the water.
I had hoped to spend my whole day like this:
I wore a swim suit even though it was cold and windy because I wanted just a bit more tan. But then Dorothy asked me to swim with her, and I couldn't say no, so I became one of 2 parents in the whole damn pool.
One final diving board pic, obviously the best one of the season.
