Austen and Adler's Pool Party

It's been hot in Chicago the last week or so. High temperatures but also high humidity levels. It's been rough. Good thing we got Austen a pool so that we he comes home from his tough day at school (daycare), he can relax by taking a dip in his pool.

Of course, Adler thinks the pool is for her too. And our usually fearful of water dog has gotten very used to cooling her paws in Austen's pool. Check out the shot above of Adler stealing Austen's pool toys. Apparently Austen wasn't the only one who thought that his floating whales were a hit.

Anyway, for those of you who have asked - Austen does like the water. It has taken some getting used to of course - especially when those big Michigan waves come crashing in on the beach but he seems to enjoy it and is getting really good at splashing around in his own pool. He doesn't even seem to mind when he splashes himself in the face by accident!

I've spent a lot of time lately though getting him used to the water. This summer we've made numerous trips to the beach in Michigan, our beach in Chicago and Rice Pool in Water Park -where I used to work in Wheaton. That's all in addition to his little pool on our back deck. Good thing he's got four swimsuits. He's certainly getting his use out of them this summer and I'm on my way to a good tan!


  • There's nothing like a sibling to make one less fearful. I'm surprised Adler would go near water after the pool incident last year.
