How to enjoy a pool...

...when you don't like swimming!

Darby loves hanging on the edge of the pool, begging us to splash water in his face. This is his favorite back yard activity, hands-down, even if he regularly leans a bit too far over and falls in.

I snapped a few pics of his recent endeavors for your viewing pleasure!

He's already fallen in once, hence the wet back end...

"Dad, I'm waiting..."
"Whew, about time!"
"More, more more!"
"C'mon...I'm right here!"

"Mom says all good dogs know, 'Go dry off on your towel!'"

"Back for more!"
And so it goes. Every pool adventure includes running the Doodlebug ragged around the edge, making him chase us from one side to the other in the hopes of getting splashed. It's not always my idea of perfection --- occasionally a girl would like to float around without distraction --- but there's just no way I can deny him such a simple pleasure.

My your summer find you with simple pleasures of your own in which to indulge.

Darby is just so funny! I'd love to jump in a pool - it's been ages. He looks like he had a great time, even if he didn't exactly swim. :-)
