Energy Sucker

That is what pools are …. energy suckers.

Bad?

No!  In this instance “energy sucker” is a GOOD thing!

After several days cooped up inside with snow fluttering outside, we were ecstatic to check into a hotel with a nice INDOOR pool!  The kids swam forever while Julia and I lounged in lawn chairs, pretending the sun was shining outside and not snowing! 

The kids had a great time getting the energy sucked out of them…

The twins were so cute and wanted me to record them jumping!  They couldn’t wait to get out of the water to watch what they had just done!

Swimming wears you out, which makes it the best energy sucker ever!

Later that day we had a memorable adventure rock climbing at Wild Walls!!  Can’t wait to post the pictures from the party we had there!  Fun times!

Happy Friday Friends!

    Looks so refreshing! although it has been a mild winter on the east coast, a dip in a heated pool sounds like the perfect solution to the winter blues!

    I love when we can take the kids swimming! It really is the best way to get their energy out. I should see if we have an indoor water park or pool around here.

    My kids live to swim! Me? Not so much! I’ll be very glad when they can swim on their own entirely:)

    fun family time. It has been awhile since we have been to the pool. Guess that would give the kids something to do.
