A Dip in the Pool


It was another stinking hot and humid day here so I pulled out the children's paddling pool I'd bought for Jazz a few years back. It just fits the width of the balcony of our apartment and is a great way for the girls and us to cool off. Jazz is getting better at getting into the water by herself. At first she was a little hesitant but after a few licks of the cool water she got in and waded around. Dixie on the other hand could not be coaxed into the water even with a snack! I picked her up and put her in the ankle deep water but she promptly jumped out. She was quite content to watch from the sidelines and drink from the hose. After finishing our "swim" the plants on the balcony and in the apartment got a good watering and the balcony got a much needed wash.

Your swimming pool looks much bigger than mine!! Maybe next time you should try digging in the water - it's soooo much fun and maybe then Dixie will join you!!

I'm with you Dixie. I put my feet in the water once, but I'm scared again now.

The weather has been cold over here in Oz but it's starting to warm up again. I don't like the humid weather.

Hi, girls.
I like your pool! Yours is just the right size!
A splash is the best way to cool off! I know that!
Have a nice day

Wow! Jazz-you like to swim? Your pool looks nice and cool, but I prefer wading in stinky ponds on my own terms.

Licks,
