Alex is getting itchy for the water. For the past two days he’s been going on about swimming. I tried to explain to him that the water was too cold for swimming right now, but he just wouldn’t accept it. So, I told him, “okay”, knowing he wouldn’t be in the water very long (if he got in at all). Anyway, this is as far as he got, but he still wouldn’t concede the water was too cold. I guess Dad still doesn’t know what he’s talking about. 😉

Adam is always pushing himself to do more. Today, he taught himself to swim underwater…

From the relative safety of neutral territory on the far side of the pool, I’m in the perfect location to observe and document the water war as it unfolds. Here, Adam takes to the high ground in an attempt to gain advantage over his adversary.

but Alex, a seasoned veteran, is entrenched in the shallow end and controls the points of entry and exit (i.e. the steps). He is well-protected from his brother’s assault.

This weekend we’re having a little family getaway to Disney’s Animal Kingdom. A couple of weeks ago I purchased an annual pass for the family, so considering we make frequent trips already, this’ll actually save me a little bit of money 🙂

So, as a belated birthday present for Cindy, I booked us a room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, one of the Walt Disney World Resorts…

Mom and the Boys

The hotel is amazing, and the guest rooms open to the ‘Savannah’, where wild animals roam. The boys thought that was pretty cool!

…but what they REALLY liked was the bunk bed in the room!

We’re planning on visiting the Animal Kingdom park tomorrow, so tonight we’re just going to relax and enjoy some drinks and this ginormous pool!

…and no one is happier than Charlie!

The boys invited their friend and neighbor Dominick to join them in the water today. These kids play great together and have loads of fun playing baseball, hockey, Star Wars, video games, etc. so on…

Kameran took a minute or two from swimming to pose for a couple of pictures with her little brother. Of course, it’s never much of a imposition for Kam to pose for a picture…

Well, our road trip is over and me and the boys are back at home. What a surprise to find Kameran here! It wasn’t really a surprise, as I knew that Jess was bringing her down to stay with May-May for a couple of weeks, but it certainly was a surprise for the boys!

Here Kam and Adam enjoy a leisurely lunch by semi-in the pool…

When Batman was a boy, he would go swimming in the Batpool and dry-off with his Battowel…

Today, Cindy and the boys are playing at Julington Creek Plantation Park…

Alex enjoys the refreshing water and pushes up the incline.

Adam is the master of the water-slide: Whoosh!

Alam takes the slide

Alex contemplates the water-slide while striking the classic Ed Sullivan pose:

“And now…right here on our shoo…Betty the Dancing Bear and the Parrot Jugglers of Guadalajara…”

The summer has been rather hot this year. Don’t get me wrong, mind you, I prefer this summer heat to the bitter cold winter weather we had this year! Anyway, what better way to take advantage of the warm weather than to spend a day at the pool? Well, Cindy and the boys favorite cousin, Katie, did just that…

Here, Alex sits perched atop the frog slide waiting for someone to push him. The other kids were lining up behind him, so his brother ended up giving him a shove.

Adam and Katie take shelter under the water umbrella. Adam was a little timid and shied away at first, until Katie forged ahead…

SPLASH-DOWN, Adam! Alex is up next!
