Fun in the Sun

If this isn't an add for "Floaties", then I don't know what is!

I took the kids to the neighborhood pool this afternoon. I would say for our first pool outing, we did OK. Nobody fell in, nobody swallowed too much water, and most importantly I would go back again. Tyson was his usual cautious self, and Emmy her usual fearless self. Our hope is to get Tyson comfortable with the water this summer and maybe give up the floaties. Em may be swimming before my Buddy this summer. Nothing scares her, and that's not always a good thing.

I will say one thing about going to the pool, it's not just going to the's an EVENT. First, everyone has to get sun screened up and that alone is a task. Then there's all of the stuff: towels, sunglasses, floaties, sippy cup, juice boxes, snacks and whatever else my darling kids want to carry with them. All of that aside, we had a great time and I can't wait to go back tomorrow.......with Paul!!!

"get this hood off of me!"


  1. Yay for swimming! We went three times this week. It IS an event to get there. I'm searching for a pool bag big enough for all our stuff!

  2. Cute, cute, cute! I think this year is the year that I will be brave enough to take my 3 by myself. It's scary!
