At our condo, one of the things that my boys like the most about the place is going to the pool.  They swim like a couple of fish and when we were there in November, we spent hours at the pool.













I love that there are body boards and pool noodles available for everyone to share and boy, they sure do like to swim.

  7. I know they weren’t their noodles, but I always loved shooting water out of them!

  8. My kids love those things to. Isaak sometimes gets in trouble at the Y because he decides to pretend it’s a fishing pole. I understand rules, but sometimes I think they were meant to be broken.

  9. oh noodles can be so much fun!!!

  10. My kids beat each other in the summer with our noodles lol. I wish we could swim right now!

  14. My boys are the same – they love to swim and would spend hours and hours if they could. In fact we are planning a trip for a weekend just to swim at a hotel pool.

  18. ooooouuuu…the kids and I love pools and totally noodles! Love all the shots Robin, make me feel like I want to jump in myself!

  19. Wow that looks like a great time! It is awesome that you have access to a pool year round for the boys. I can tell they really love swimming.

  20. That is great.. we get the ones with the holes in them, so the kids can use them as water guns..

  21. I love those noodles! Being that I suck at swimming, but am getting better, they used to be my only saving grace to going beyond where I could touch or hang onto the side of a pool.

  22. I read the title wrong the first time – I almost thought it was going to be a recipe post! My boys love those noodles but they can quickly become weapons (gotta love them!)

  23. I just saw something on some TV show mentioning these pool noodles – it said something that the guy who invented these pool noodles is a millionaire. They are sure fun, and it was a terrific idea!

  24. Looks like your boys were having a great time! Swimming is such good exercise and so relaxing. And just about everyone thinks pool noodles are fun! Looks like you all have been having lots of fun lately. I’ve been enjoying your family fun pictures and blog posts. God bless! 🙂

  25. Makes me wish we lived in a nice condo!

  26. Now you have me longing for a day by the pool!

  27. We also love those noodles! I miss the pool!

  28. Hari OM
    That is looking like a lot of fun – I could almost feel the hot and steamy atmosphere, the splash of the water… YAM xx

  29. haha. love noodles.

  30. My kids love pool noodles!! It is a great way to teach them how to swim!

  31. We keep a noodle, boogie board and beach ball in my trunk at all times for whenever we might decide to go to my mom’s complex pool, the city pools or the lake at a moment’s notice 🙂

  32. Over the ThanksGiving holiday our cousins came to visit, and we got to bring our giant box of noodles we bought at the summer clearance sale so everyone (even those who weren’t in our group) got to swim with a noodle. It was really fun!

  33. I can’t WAAAIIITTT for pool weather!

  34. Looks like they had fun! Me and my sisters love swimming too 🙂 I can’t wait for the summer 🙂

  35. not sure who invented the pool noodle but it was genius they are so fun

  36. I love that they are still young enough to be so thrilled with you taking photos of them!

  37. Those pool noodles were one of the best inventions since sliced bread. We had a few of them at the pool this past summer.

  38. Swimming looks so good right now, with it being freezing here! My kids love playing with pool noodles. Did you know if you stick the noodle under water and then blow into it, you can turn it into a water canon?!?

  39. My kids LOVE these and they have become quite the fish! Mine are still in the Power Ranger stage soo they become a weapon sometimes. Your boys look like they are having a blast!

  40. I like the fact that you guys are always doing something fun as a family, my kids havent got a chance to play in the pool with pool noodle, but this summer I will make sure I pick some up for them

  41. I love noodles too. They are also a great easy extension to send out to someone who drifts too deep or needs a little help getting back to the edge of the pool. Price can’t be beat either.

  42. Oh I can’t say as I blame them the pool is my favorite place at a hotel. Especially if it is heated..

  43. My kids love to swim as well. It’s one of the big reasons why we always choose to pick a location with an indoor pool.

  44. That’s so cool that they offer the pool toys for everyone. I hate going to a pool only to have my girls grow bored quickly because there isn’t much to do. And I am very envious of your sons eyelashes!

  45. I wanted to get one but haven’t got a chance to buy them…looks like fuuun…

  46. Those noodle are fantastic. It looks like they are having a lot of fun in the pool.

  47. Seems like you kids have lots of fun.. These pool noodles are great fun

  48. what a super fun day! it looks like your kids love the pool – and pool noodles!

  49. your kids are good at being still for the camera. mine has to be threatened.

  50. That was my favorite thing about traveling as a child. My parents NEVER chose a place to stay without a pool!

  51. Now that is one smart idea that works. My kids used them when they were little and I just love how a simple idea can deliver as promised.

  52. Those boys have a great time no matter where they are!

    «Louis» is happy you linked with his <a href="”>Wordless Wednesday 🙂

  53. What kid doesn’t like being in the water? It’s great fun and exercise! Happy WW!

  54. Looks like fun! My youngest decided to have a pool party for his birthday in November. Luckily a community center nearby has a great indoor kids pool. They love to swim in the winter!

  55. That is lot of fun. My Ds had yellow and orange.
    Happy WW!

  56. I love swimming and I’m not afraid to admit that even as an adult I love the pool noodles. I could float around for hours. I went to Bally’s in Atlantic City this weekend and was hoping for a swim, but sadly the pool was closed.

  57. My two love to swim as well. They get so excited when we stay anywhere with an indoor pool! Thank you so much for linking up with The BOAT!

  58. Mine are the same way. They’d be blue lipped, shivering and wrinkled like big ole raisins, and you still couldn’t get them out of the pool! I am sure I was the same way at that age too. And I do love having my own noodle and just floating around them while they play.

  59. Looks like they are having great fun 🙂 My kids love pool noodles. I have to replace them every summer,lol 🙂

  60. I miss the pool. I miss warmth!! Your boys look like they are having a blast!

  61. Cute! Last summer I went to a coworker’s community pool a lot and was super excited when she bought me my own pool noodle from the dollar store. ^.^

  62. My son loves to swim also. If the water is freezing, he complains a while and then he gets in and starts swimming around. It’s a lot of fun for them and even I still enjoy swimming.

  63. I love pool noodles…and all of your photos! Plus there’s so many crafts you can do with them too!

  64. That’s a really nice pool. I’d be in it every day 🙂

  65. I remember the first time my parents took us to Disney World and all I wanted to do was swim in the pool! Kids n pools!!

  66. Wowzers, there are a bunch of comments here! I kept scrolling and scrolling – lol! Your boys were having a grand time. I could tell and you …my dear, are a fab photographer, too.

  67. I love how your kids are totally used to getting their pictures taken!

  68. We’re going to the condo on the coast in March, the kids are already talking about the lazy river. Fun!

  69. Love your pics!! I live in Florida and enjoy a pool with “noodles” quite often! Fun!!!

  70. My kids are obsessed with the pool in the summer time. I am ready for it to warm up so I can not be so pasty white. 🙂

  71. Pool noodles are the best! We love floating around our pool or in the lake with them. It’s also fun to blow water out of the end of one at people.

  72. A spa we go to has a pool … and noodles. And yes, we haul them into the pool 🙂

  73. The pool at the beach house we rent every summer is loaded with pool noodles — it’s the first thing the kids go for! So much fun for so little cost!

  74. My son and I can both swim for hours, but both don’t know how to swim. I guess I’m going have to take swimming lessons AGAIN (took them twice in the past) and have my son take swimming lessons, too.

  75. Looks like they are having so much fun 🙂

  76. My kids LOVE to swim too! I wish I was the person who invented the pool noodle. It was probably a joke at first and made them a millionaire.

  77. I hate swimming. I need to get my oldest back into swim classes he loved it.
