Ain't summertime grand?

Jumping off the diving board

Buddy-Boy goes off the board. Banzai!!!

I took them all to the pool today since it was over 100 degrees out. The house gets to be very warm and uncomfortable in mid-afternoon, so it's a nice treat to go for a dip in the pool.

By the way, wanna know what "banzai" actually means? It literally means "ten thousand years." The Japanese would shout "May the emperor live ten thousand years!" on the battlefield, but the Allied soldiers just heard the "banzai" part and called it a "banzai attack." Go figure.

I'm sure my resident Japan experts out there will have more to add. I just Googled it and that's what came up.
