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!

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…

Today starts the first day of pool season!

How do we get in again?

Running around the pool

At last!

The boys also had a big-ball-water-sprayer-thing that Adam seemed to enjoy–he kept running back-and-forth through the spray. Alex, on the other hand, and true to form, could do without it.

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

Time is winding down on the family visit. Nana, Pa and the boys’ favorite cousin, Katie, will be hitting the road for the return home tomorrow. But today the sun was shining and the air was warm; the perfect weather for swimming trunks and kiddie pools…

When the boys are finished lounging by the pool, Katie takes them for a drive around the yard…

The little “floaties” are pretty cool…I imagine it’s what an Egyptian pharaoh would’ve looked like floating down the Nile (minus the shades, of course :-)).
