Remember Thanksgiving 2009? The high was 1.2C and my mom and dad’s neighborhood got this much snow: I’m not making that up. Here’s the kids playing on my parents’ deck, October 9, 2009: Thanksgiving weekend this year was MUCH milder. Like, let’s-go-swimming milder. My dad still had the pool open so he turned on the heater. On Saturday it was still a little cool but the boys didn’t seem to mind at all. Seth was sure excited to swim (I swear that kid is part fish…). Dad jumped in for a swim too.Then he got suckered in to helping Ben jump in approximately 78 times. Ben sure had fun though! It was a fun day but just wait until you see the pictures from Monday- when it got to almost 26C!
