What do we do? We swim, swim. - 2013 Edition

 (My nephew, Troy)
We went swimming last Friday night. My parents do this thing about once a year where they'll rent a hotel room right across the hallway from the pool of said hotel.  We swim, and then we go into the hotel room, have pizza, and watch a pay-per-view movie.  We love it.
Mom has it down to a science.  She brings extra-large fitted sheets that she puts right over each bed, so that we don't get pizza all over the hotel's comforters, she pre-labels all of the plastic cups with peoples' names on them...She's so cool.
Gage had two near-drowning incidents, but you know, no big deal...
They weren't really near-drowning incidents.  I mean, they would have been if people hadn't been right next to him to pluck him out of the water.  He likes to hang out in the hot tub and walk on the bench inside where adults sit, back and forth, back and forth.  And he fell off the bench a couple of times.  The first time, my nephew Brock saved his life.  The second time, I saved his life.  Good times.

(My sis, Nat.)
 (My niece, Ivy.)
(Brock, life-saver extraordinaire.)
 Dylan broke my goggles, dang him:
Dad was not, as this picture might indicate, going pee in the pool: 
He was squirting someone with a squirt gun.  You can blame my bad picture-taking skillz for this one.

Beads has always been a bit of a fish.  She loooves swimming:
 My love:
 Sades and Beads:
The movie we watched - The Guardians.  The kids loved it.

Ohhh, we had so much fun.  And I discovered a little thing called a chicken and bacon pizza.  I'm a bit obsessed with it.  Gonna have to have more of that in the very near future.

It looks like everyone had tons of fun. Getting a hotel room is always a fun thing. I am really impressed with your cute mom's organization and planning skills. Someday I will have to do the Aunt version of that fun grandparent activity for my niblets!

That is such a fun little tradition you guys have!! Swimming in a hotel pool is so much more fun than anywhere else:) Tinian likes to have near death drowning experiences tool. I think it excites him... not that he really understands what would happen if no one was there. It's just fun to be under the water! :)
