The Captains Family Is Poolside

One of the best parts of this summer has been Family Sunday over at my mom’s house.  All the turmoil this year has really brought my family here in St. Louis closer together.  And my mother’s backyard pool has been ideal for this kind of gathering.  She’s been hosting the whole family on Sunday afternoons and it’s had quite a turn out.  Here’s a couple of pic from the past few Sundays.

What a motley crew!  My mother has been putting a lot of work over the years into making her backyard a good spot for family gatherings, and I’m glad to see it’s finally paying dividends.

 

I went digging into my Year On The Road pictures stash to see if I had any relatable pictures and I found this great pic of my sister and I for #WaybackWednesday

This was taken in April of 2003, a little over a year after my mother moved into her new house.  Back then the pool wasn’t open and the deck was in pretty rough shape.  In the decade plus since then it’s transformed into a fun spot for all kinds of events.  My sister even recently had her bridal shower poolside.

So cheers to my mom and her backyard.  I’ll see you again on Sunday!

 

 

Ciao,
