July 21, 2008: Kylynn, Josh, Brooke, Ben, Grant &
Garrett visit Kingman's old downtown pool. I drove them to & from the
pool in installments....our car seats 5 and it was interesting...Even though it
is only a 3 mile trip to the pool, I was worried sick something would happen
to the kids at the pool or at our house while I transported. Garrett, the
youngest, was 8; & Kylynn, the oldest, was a few weeks shy of 14.
Kylynn went with me on the 1st trip (so she could watch the little ones at
the pool while I went back for the 2nd batch); Josh watched those left behind
at the house. Later, on the trip back to the house, I followed the
same procedure but in reverse. For what little time Grant & Garrett
spent in the water, it was in the shallow end and they pretty much hugged the
side of the pool. Safety first for those two little guys. Not so
for the older ones. As a matter of fact, I do believe I heard more than
one whistle warning from the lifeguard. As you see in the pictures,
interest in the pool had waned for Kingman kids; the pool was pretty empty. On
each trip back to the house we stopped at the downtown convenience store,
Circle K, for snacks. Wow, were they hungry!
