When you live in Texas cooling off in the summer time often means going to the pool.

Luckily we have one right in our neighborhood, so it’s just a walk down the block to get there.

Even my 2-year-old can tell when we’re getting ready. He gets excited when he sees I’m getting out swimsuits out and says “bye bye pool!” My kids love to pack a picnic, pile in the double stroller and go down to cool off.

My son almost always chooses an apple as his snack. My daughter loves mandarin oranges, and both of them love sipping on some of their favorite tropical Tampico juice before jumping back into the pool for more fun.
