summertime by the pool


aloha everyone! while we are here on oahu (our home away from home) san diego is still on our minds. when we are home in s.d. we like to spend as much time as possible in our pool. it is by far the best investment we ever made for our home. sometimes i can't tell if rain is related to Bruce Banner or if she's just been in the pool every day, but rain's hair turns green every summer.




i'm open! i'm open! i got it!




i don't got it.




rain needs to work on her water polo skills.




what'd you say?!




fire!




here's our old buddy DeNiro (and kim's brother glenn). DeNiro is happy. DeNiro doesn't know he's about to get a bath.




DeNiro doesn't like water.




Not at all.




DeNiro's version of jowling.




here's Kona. Kona does not know she's next in line for a bath.




kona doesn't like water either.







doggie jowling looked like so much fun that kona thought she'd give it a go.




she showed DeNiro how it's really done.













back in the pool rain and noah decided to join forces to try to take me down.
















i let them have their fun.




and then...




it's clobberin' time!







noah came at me like a spider monkey, but...




he was no match for my pool-ninja skills.






















after a thrashing like that, noah had to cool off under the waterfall.










contemplating their failure.




water is the essence of wetness.
wetness is the essence of beauty.




mer-man. MER-MAN!




hit the showers kids.







time for a little B B Q.




insert your own humorous sausage / man-meat reference here.




thanks for stopping by san diego.
but mostly, stay classy.
see you soon!
