Just a simple journal about my life with husband, kids, grandkids, and extended family. Probably nothing special to the rest of the world, but very special to me.

Roll Out Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days Of Summer!

(Raymond all decked out for the Fourth of July!)

We've been spending most of our time trying to keep cool.  If we are not in the air-conditioning, we are out back in the pool!

Ray bought a new awning for the deck on the side of the pool and that is where I spend most of my time:
He also bought fencing to keep the babies penned in and it's worked out very well!

Here's the view from my usual perch on one of the lounge chairs:

I'm not a big fan of pools, but I am in the minority as you can see:

Eóghan enjoys the pool a lot!

And Baby Ray took to it like a fish!

That's exactly how his big cousin Jayden always was too!

Mia is taking swimming lessons and she is really enjoying the pool a lot this year too!

Her baby sister Sophie wasn't too happy when she first went in the pool, but the next few times she looked forward to going in the water:

And I think if Jayden had his way ~ he'd live in the pool!
He is most definitely enjoying these lazy, hazy, crazy days of Summer!  And so am I!


  1. Cool and relaxing times, Eileen.
    The water is sparkling, just like the eyes of Jayden. He's growing so fast!
    Continue to enjoy the times with family. Precious times they are...

  2. A beautiful looking pool Eileen. I just got of the pool myself. It looks like your family is having a blast. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment.

  3. Baby Ray is darling...what a cute picture to start this post off with. I love the bigger brighter pictures you have. You must have a really good camera. But of course it helps that you have beautiful grandchildren too. And about that baby fence....did you buy several and put them all together, or did they all come in one pkg??
