Memorial Day Fun!

 What a weekend filled with swimming and more swimming and more swimming, friends, and barbecues! I must again give my husband a big thanks.....I wasn't so sure about joining the country club last year but now I am thrilled! We have so enjoyed many kid friendly events and have spent quite a bit of time at the pool already! Every holiday the club has some sort of event and for Memorial Day they had a swimming party filled with splash contests, ice cream, balloons, and face painting. We had the best time and I am sure will spend many more Memorial days there! To start out our Memorial day weekend, I introduced Jackson to water balloons. He didn't understand at first that the fun was in the balloons breaking, but soon caught on!
 Catch it daddy!!
 After the water balloons, we headed to the country club for our first swim of the season! Jackson continues to have zero fear of the water and jumped off the diving board again without skipping a beat! He swims very well with his floaties and I don't think it will be long until those are a thing of the past!!
Here is Jackson's first dive of the season. He dove into the water and swam all the way to the ladder by himself.
 Climbing the ladder like a pro!
 On Memorial day, Jackson had his first swim team practice! Jackson is a jellyfish on the country club swim team. It took him a while to warm up to the instructor because all he wanted to do was jump off the diving board, but she was able to keep him distracted!
 Beckett doing what Beckett does best. This child gets carted all over the place and never complains one bit! He is such a sweet little guy!!

After swim team, we stayed for the barbecue. They had so many fun things for Jackson. Here is Jackson getting his sword!
 He wanted to be a pirate so of course, he needed his pirate patch!

 No barbecue is complete without a little sweet treat!
 My sweet pirate. After the barbecue we then headed over to our friend's house for another barbecue. Between all the swimming and playing with the kids, Jackson was worn out!!
As for Beckett, he is now enjoying some time in the jumperoo. I cannot believe how big he is getting! I am so blessed to be the mommy of these two amazing little boys!!
