Pool Party

Yep, it’s that time of year . . . . we had our first pool party this afternoon.  The weather was sunny and beautifully warm.  Somewhere in the mid 80’s.  Trust me, that’s not normal for Ohio in late April.  I turned the AC on yesterday.  It’ll probably be cold and rainy next week, but today was beautiful! 
Today was the day we decided to introduce Rocky to the joy that is a swimming pool.  Luci was thrilled when we got the pool out today.  She was so excited, she couldn’t stay still long enough for me to turn on the hose.  Rocky had no idea what was going on and since it involved a hose (I’ve had to spray the mud off him a couple of times lately) he didn’t want any part of it.  No matter what I tried – or how curious he got when he thought I wasn’t looking – he would not get in the pool.  He would stand at the side of the pool and watch Luci, but he never got in it himself.  After she splashed in the pool for a while, she’d run around the yard and find a pile of dirt to roll in. 
Luci was having a wonderful time. 
Rocky was not impressed. 
Next time I’ll get out the sprinkler and see if he likes that better. . .
