Try not to smile while looking at the photo of Casey Rainosek in a pool under the beaming sun.

It's almost impossible, especially for his parents Wesley and Jessica Rainosek, of Hallettsville.

Casey, now 9 months, was spending his first time in a pool, cooling off from the Texas heat, his mother said.

"He goes in it a few times a week," she said. "We just bought him the pool."

The pool is large enough so that as Casey grows up, he can still enjoy it.

The pool is not the only thing little Casey does to cool off. He also enjoys eating popsicles, his mom said.
