Marco Polo

Do you remember this game we used to play when we were kids?? It was like playing hide and go seek in the pool. I used to love it!!

Well, yesterday, Allen and the two younger boys were playing it in the pool, and they were having a blast with it. Well, it was Allen's turn to be "Marco", and the boys had to stay away from him. So the game went on for awhile, and they did a great job staying away from him. As a matter of fact, Allen had been playing for about 10 minutes and didn't tag either one of them. And ya know why?? They got out of the pool!!! Bubba came in and told me what was going on, how they left daddy in the pool, and he was cracking up!! I am glad I wasn't out there, because I am not very good at keeping a joke, I start laughing and that would be the end of it!! Then Allen comes in, and says, "Think that was funny, huh?"...and I just cracked up!! He was a good sport and he told me toward the end he said, "You guys are really good, did you get out of the pool??" Oh, the boys thought that was the best!!! Oh, and to top it off, we don't have a large pool, our pool is an 18' above ground pool...LOL

Oh, it was a riot and I loved it!!! These are the memories that they boys will remember with their dad!!
