A Splash of Summer


SUMMER came back to the Bay Area over the weekend. It was so toasty that My Mommys limited my outside time. I was NOT going to argue because Princesses do NOT sweat. And I was not into GLOWING either. So I opted to stay indoors the majority of the weekend. 

But then Auntie T put up the pool and - well - I could not resist a dip or two in the pool. Ah! The refreshing way it tickled my toes. . . the smooth as silk coolness invading my whole being as I splashed around. It was pure HEAVEN!

Molly is not such a waterdoggy. She tiptoed around a little - but she never really gave in to the experience at all. In fact, she hopped out almost as soon as this photo was taken. Can you see the panic in her eyes? I find this a bit odd coming from a pup who takes 2-3 baths A WEEK!!!! And sometimes SHOWERS! But there you have it - she hates to swim.

I like that the pool is accessible to me all day so even when I am let out only to do my bidness, I can take a quick dip in the pool to cool off. It is so delightful. This, to me is one of the finest things about summertime.

That looks like FUN! Momma keeps talking about getting a wading pool for us in the summer. Maybe she finally will this year.

Man, was it seriously toasty this weekend or what?! Urg!! Now the weather's back to being weird, make up your mind!!

Awesome pool time fun Noodles! My pool broke at the end of last season, so now I have to get a new one. You've inspired me!

Noodles, Lucky loves swimming, but I do NOT like getting wet even a little bit. Lucky says she would enjoy splashing around in your pool with you. I'd just soak up the rays!

Oh you make the pool look inviting! I, Benny, am not a fan of wet feets

A dip in a pool sounds amazing! It just won't act like summer here in Iowa.

Noodles, that looks like so much fun! I've never been in a pool. I do get OBSESSED with water so it might get ugly but I'd love to try it at least once! Glad to hear it's doing a good job of keeping you cool.

I think we may need to break out the pool for D&D this summer. Stay cool Noodles!
