I shouldn't even tell all the family away from us still suffering in the cold that we did cheat a little. We did heat the pool to take off the chill. For sure would of been too cold without but it was so nice outside! Trey is my crazy man! We definitely will have to watch him. Lincoln, not so much!! He is fine to float around in the float, or making sure someone is in arms length. He loves jumping off the end though so i think it will just take going out a few more times, but they both love the water and have tons of fun!
