Number one rule in pool safety with kids...

Stay within an arms reach! That's the number one rule in pool safety that was taught to us in last years CPR course.

This weekend we went over to my aunts house for a swim. The whole way driving there I was a little nervous. Last summer baby K didn't walk yet so he was in my arms at all times. This year he is walking and running all over it's hard to keep him close! The whole drive there I repeated in my head... Don't let your eyes off him! Not even for a second! I remembered the number one rule in water safety to keep kids in an arms reach of you.  While there I didn't even need to mention my fears out loud, my family is amazing and every single one of them had their eyes on Kris.. not only because he's a cutie ha! But for his safety. I never let my eyes off him and stayed close!

This summer will be full of water fun I'm sure and baby K loves the water so the second rule I want to add is a life jacket for baby K when walking around a pool/beach area. I bought a swimsuit with an attached floaty in it, that will definitely be this summers bathing suit.

Praying for everyone to have a safe and fun summer!

Pool time!

The weather here is great! Hot hot hot!

Today we went to my Aunts house to cool down and go for a swim!!

The kids had a great time!

During this nice weather I'm sure many parents are taking their kids for a swims... Water safety is soooo important!!! As adults and with kids in the water we always need to be in the water with them! It only takes a second for something to happen.

When I was about 4 I was in my uncle's pool when I slipped into the deep end. I couldn't swim. My dad was on the deck above and saw that I went under and jumped right in to get me... I was fine, if he wasn't close by and watching it could have ended much differently. I know first hand how all it takes is a second to go under.

So stay safe!!!!!! Floaties for all kids and adults in the water too!

Wednesday a couple friends and I are taking a CPR course. Never do I want to be in a situation to use it, but I will feel much better to know what to do in any situation that I would need to use it!
