Crazy Days of Summer Week Two: Refreshing

So this may not be the most original concept for the "refreshing" prompt, but if you knew how hard this was to achieve you may cut me some slack. Due to a no camera rule at our city pools my little man became a conspirator to my act of crime standing guard while I quickly shot. With stormy weather brewing, the pool was fairly sparse and it made for a more direct shot free of distractions. So glad I got it when I did. Last night we had a crazy midwestern storm that brought with it a 25-30 degree drop in temp. And rain forecasted for the rest of the week. A big shout out to Pokey for being such a great subject for these pics.

  28. Very cool - we appreciate you being sneaky so we can take pleasure in your pics!! Is the no camera rule about other kids' privacy? I guess I can understand that - glad it worked out for you and you didn't get arrested or anything - that would have made for a heck of a blog!!!!
