Due to a very rainy and unseasonably cool May around here, swimming season is just heating up. We kicked it off last Saturday and have been 4 times in the past week. There's a cute little girl whose bathing suit body cracks me up! I so wish that my rolls and cellulite were as precious as hers! Today, we actually had our 1st minor scare when Claire decided to take a head 1st tumble into the pool trying to fill up her bucket. I was right beside her & rolled off into the pool to rescue her. She didn't even cry, but let out a big burp from the water she swallowed.
This is how we'll spend most of our weekends from now until September..hanging out at Nana and Papa's pool. I love this time of year...until it's 103 degrees and 100% humidity!
here she is checking out the water
jumping into daddy
i just had to take a picture of her back & her ponytail. i wish i could've gotten one standing up, but i was always too afraid she'd head straight into the water!
Totally off subject, I planted 2 tomato plants this year for the very 1st time. It's a little spot that I usually put flowers in, but Claire has deemed it her digging spot, so I didn't even bother with it. Instead I put 2 tomatoes, and she has the rest of the area to dig around. I L-O-V-E tomatoes..like nothing you've ever seen. I could eat 2 or 3 homegrowns in a sitting in the summer. It's by far my favorite food of the summer! Needless to say, I am so excited to see these puppies growing!
i am really hoping that this will be the year that it all "clicks" for grant. i'm ready for him to be floatie free and a little more daring. swimming lessons start in a few weeks, so we'll see what happens after that.
