Visits from Grandkids and Pool Party

Summer Sunday is a new meme hosted by the Tablescaper at http://thetablescaper.blogspot.com/ Be sure to visit her site and see more summer fun.
Summer to me means having grandkids over for a visit and having pool parties for them to enjoy.

After the 2 boys left 2 weeks ago, 4 more grandkids came. This is the first time all of our grandkids visited within the same month and that really made our month extremely busy but very enjoyable.



We decided to have a pool party. Here's my stepdaughter scooping up some punch. I will show more of the table on Thursday for Tablescape Thursday.
We hired 2 life guards for peace of mind. Aren't they cute?

And here are all the kids. They really had a great time.




Here's John demonstrating how to dive the correct way. I think Kerri did a great job!

The wet deck was enjoyed by all.


They all swam.




played basketball






slid and splashed



Even little Zoe went on the slide. Do you see her coming down? She is so tiny and so daring!


Big smiles!



Some guests thought it was AJ's birthday and they brought presents. We decided to have a drawing to give the presents away to the kids.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to the Tablescaper for hosting this summer fun event.

Oh Christine, if I could just pop through my laptop and jump into that gorgeous pool! This looks like so much fun, and the kids look so happy. I think it's fantastic that you hired lifeguards, what a great idea! I know you are having a wonderful time with all your little visitors :) Kat

Looks like an awesome party!!!! Love the wet deck. I don't think I've ever seen that in a home setting. Is it like a sprinkler system into a patio area?

Can't wait to see the tablescape.

Thanks so much for coming and joining "Summer Sundays"!

What a fun time. Wish I was there. I have never seen the splash or fountain area, whatever you call it, like that at a home pool. Every pool should have one. You have a lovely pool and yard. Aren't grandchildren the best? Have a wonderful Sunday.

Dolores said...

Christine, your yard and pool area looks like a fantasy land for children. You all have a beautiful and happy looking family!

Christine, you make me miss my pool that we had on our other house. Wasn't real big like yours though. Looks like everyone had such a good time. For some reason your comments are not going to my email anymore. I am going to have to take a look and see what is going on. Several comments are from others aren't coming through either. I hope you are enjoying those wonderful grandchildren.
