Like clock work, they did it again

It happens every year at just about this time.  
The weather finally warms up, and the kiddos, who have been staring at the pool all winter long, just can not stand it any more.  And eventually a big person caves in and says okay.  And in their excitement they peel off their clothing, leaving a trail behind, and jump in the water in their bare nothins'.  
Don't get me wrong.  The water is cold.  Much too cold for rational folks to swim.  Which would explain all the teeth chattering that goes on.  
So eventually they, (the irrational ones) flop themselves like fish out of the water and on to the deck to soak up its warmth. 
Every year... this time... it happens just like that.

  8. Those are phenomenal!!! I adore them all, but the very first one.. with the clothes in focus and Tess' nudie jump in the background bokeh.. LOVE..... Oh my! I love the story it tells.. all in one shot!!

    I would have been one of those crazy kids.. I love the water. In high school my cousin and I couldn't wait any more and jumped in the pool at the gym.. with snow still on the ground. Then we got in the hot tub!!!
