Summer is here and kids are out of school. We have longer days and beautiful hot nights. Most people, enjoy going outside for activities during the Summer time. I for one, love being outside when the weather is warm. Growing up in Midlothian, my grandmother always took me to the pool. I couldn’t get enough of it. She would take me to the pool every day. Maybe it was because she saw how much I loved it or to wear me out, I was a rambunctious little kid. I look back at all the great memories I had at the pool in Summer. Now, with my own child, I see how much he loves playing in the water. He can’t get enough of the pool.
Stop whatever you're doing and GO OUTSIDE, enjoy the pool, enjoy this beautiful weather. If you can’t go to the pool, or don’t have one by you, here are a few ways to enjoy water in the Summer.
