Chillin out in the baby pool!
Just like everywhere else right now………it is has been hotter than hot, so we decided that if we were going to enjoy the outdoors this weekend, the only way to stay cool was at the pool!
We met Coachie(My Dad) who just loves to sit out in the sun and go swimming……he has called a couple of times this summer to see if we wanted to bring the kids swimming and it just hasn’t worked out, so this weekend we called him and said we wanted to go!
The couple of times we have been swimming this year it has been at a friends…..they have a beautiful pool, but it isn’t really baby/toddler friendly…..
Sarah was just loving the fact that she could run and play in 12 inches of water without having to cling on to me for dear life. As a bonus, this pool had an area right next to the baby pool that was set up as a play area….they put an outdoor carpet down on the pavement and set up some kids tables and chairs. They also had about 6 different Little Tikes Playhouses and Kitchen sets. When Sarah laid eyes on these…..she lit up like a Christmas tree.
As much as she loved the play area, the pool itself was just as fascinating to her.
Nick being the great big brother that he is, gave up some of his time in the big pool to play with his little sis…..he would throw these little pool torpedos that we brought along with us, and Sarah and I would try to find them. As we picked them up one at a time….Sarah counted….1, 2, 3, 4…..then she would say….Again!
We did experience our first complete head dunk during this trip…..she did great…..not a tear was shed……….until she got her first mouthful of water! The poor little thing cried for a couple of minutes…..I think her throat was burning because she asked for her juice, but as soon as she got a drink, she was back in the water for more pool time fun!
It was a fun afternoon and by the time we got home, Sarah was exhausted and ready for a nice long nap! The kids had a great time with Coachie and we can’t wait to do it again!
