The Ferkin Family took advantage of our Monday off for Labor Day to head up to Monrovia to see Grandpa Rick and Grandma Diane and to take a dip in their pool. This was a good idea because Monday was a scorcher.
On our way north on the 605 it usually warms like 5° as we head inland toward the foothills. This time however, we left La Mirada and our vans exterior thermometer read 85° and by the time we arrived in Monrovia it hit 100°!
We figured our drive coincided with the whole area heating up after some cloud cover had burned off. In any event, we were ready for the pool as soon as we got there.
We have started putting “water wings” on Parker and he is pretty content to float around the pool on his own. We put him up on the pool deck to jump to us and he will run away and find his own spot to climb back into the pool. Ever independent.
Here are some pictures and a video:
