Pool season that is!! We made our first trip to the outdoor pool at the Y today - and it was WONDERFUL!!!! It's in the upper 80s today, and we had gone to the beach last week, so we decided to make our first trip of the season to the pool. It was great - the kids were excited to be back, and I had braced myself for craziness and cold water. It wasn't bad though - the water actually felt GREAT, and it wasn't too crowded since we were there right as it opened.
We lucked out and discovered our friends (the Maggiores and the Saunders), so that was an extra bonus!!! I had packed a picnic lunch for us (complete with Cheetos - is that a treat or what?), so it was just a great day. The boys took off swimming like they had never left, and Callie very much enjoyed her new abilities and freedoms in the pool - loved the slides, fountains, kids, everything.
As usual, the hardest part is getting everyone changed and packed up to leave. Because the boys are older this year, they had to go in the restroom and get themselves changed....but they managed. We got home and got everyone in bed for naptime - a GREAT start to a Saturday!
