The days are starting to warm up around here. After living in Phoenix for almost 4 years, I still haven't gotten used to it! I sometimes wonder if I ever will! Now that it is heating up, we can enjoy the outdoor pool. Yesterday was one of those days. We took the kids swimming, and of course, they had a great time! People always ask what we do for fun when it is so hot. Well, I suppose we spend a lot of time at the pool!
There are good and bad things about the weather here. For one, we don't have to shovel snow or scrape ice from our car windows. We don't have to wait for the heater in the car to finally be hot, but we do have to wait for the air conditioner to finally be cold! We also don't have to bundle up the kids just to get to the car. However, we do have to keep track of hats, sunglasses, sunscreen, flip flops, and water bottles. We also don't have to worry about snow in April. We do have to walk as quickly as possible through the parking lot, to finally reach an air conditioned store (and so our feet don't burn on the pavement!) I guess we just went from one extreme to another when we moved here! I can't decide which is best! I wish we could become snowbirds and enjoy the best of both worlds! Maybe when Kelly reaches retirement!

Mom and Katelyn sat this one out. It was sort of windy and the temperature of the water wasn't really up to mom's liking!
Our chunky Katie Bug! By the way, she is seven months and in size 4 diapers! Carson never got out of size 3 at 2 1/2 years! She is pretty fun to squeeze! She also looks a lot like Connor did. We call her our red headed Connor!
The boys in the pool!
More fun with Daddy in the pool!
