Pool day!

It got warm enough to pull out the swimming pool and sprinkler this week.  Piper was more than willing to indulge.

Addy was slightly less amused.

But once she figured out that it was supposed to be fun, she got a little more brave.  Piper helped her realize the fun that was to be had.  Even if it was only one foot at a time.

Piper’s most favorite thing to do is slide into the three-foot-across pool. 

This is called “game face.”

She felt the need to inform me that the water was a tad chilly.  Go figure.

Even with a swim suit that is, apparently, a bit too big, carrying the hose around, taunting your sister, is a great way to spend the afternoon.

Addy was… less than amused.DSCN4421

So long as the getting wet part was on her terms, Addy made amends with the water and ended up, mostly, enjoying herself.

I have a feeling it’ll be a common treat this summer-  Addy actually sleeps afterward.  And that is saying something.

Of course it’s probably just because she spends the entire time hypersensitive and on red alert (self preservation is a powerful motivator…)

Whatever works.


  1. oh, we have been living in the water here. it's been soooo hot! sliding down the slide into the pool is the best summer time fun ever!

  2. Your girls are getting so big so fast and they both are adorable!
