Strange happenings around the pool

Gail pointed out that she had been watching some of the millipedes make their way into the pool yesterday, so this morning I joined her in checking out the strange happenings in the area... and here is what I saw:

The Ant millipedes go marching one by one...
 some bonus centipedes in the pool - ewh!
 the millipedes in the pool - double, triple yuck!
 and HOW they are getting there...
what is their fascination with the water? Who knows!!

Hot Dogs ... oops, I mean, HOT people!

OK, Angela looks positively possessed.  Scary!  She and Caroline were in the 72degree pool - BURRRRR.  We cooked out some hamburgers and hand that and some mack and cheese by the pool, then all of us got in the hot tub.  it took some convincing to get Johnathon to agree to the "little" pool - we talked him into it as it was heating because he didn't want the "hot" one... surprise, it wasn't hot!  then it slowly warmed while he was in there...and after dinner his teeth were fairly chattering, so the now HOT tub felt lovely - I left it at 98 so it wasn't super heated. :)

All in all a great way to finish off a hot day in the sun at Lanes Corn Maze!

Cousins and Holidays

Gail, Seth, Caroline and Johnathan came over today to visit.  The girls went swimming for a bit... well, that's not right because they came to visit earlier, sans bathing suits and we were being slugs around the house... I had done laundry and organized some disks (trashed some, organized others for thrift)... but for the most part... SO boring.  Caroline asked if she could stay with us, i warned her we were boring.. she didn't buy it!  Ha we proved correct about 2 hours into her stay over here.. she was bored and wanted to go - ha!
Gail and Seth came back with a swimsuit for Caroline and she and Angela jumped into the pool - BURRRR.. it's about 72 degrees.  So, really, in the big scheme of things not truly frigid, just a little chilly.  I started the hot tub heating in the mean time.  They never did make it to the hot tub.
 
They did however, get to witness Johnathan kick Lizzie's butt in Wii

 
 
 Lizzie was a good sport about being beat by a 3 year old! 
 
AND Caroline and Angela helped to creep up the front porch for me!  Ya!!


Height Check - AND Gail ins on her toes - well, as much as Caroline would let her get up on them.. she was in the background trying to grab a shoulder and drag her back down to size.  Yep, Angela's gonna be a TALL one :)
