The swimming Pool

Oh the glorious swimming pool! We woke up today at 6:30 am and by 7am we were in the pool. Ava and Olivia were both wearing swimming floats that are similar to lifejackets except for the fact that they don't save lives. The floats aer designed to add a little extra bouyance to allow the child to learn to swim.

Ava watched Olivia swim around in circles yelling, "look mommy I swim in ovals" and thought she should be free to swim in the pool all by herself too. That wasn't happening so of course she wanted daddy because mean old mommy wasn't giving in. Ava loved the water. She played a lot at the stairs and could grab the wall and walk along it. She really loved to roll over on her back and float and kick her feet.

After an hour and a half we all meandered out of the pool and back into the house for some cinamon crumb cake muffins and milk.

Now we sit and wait patiently for our friends to arrive..
