Emma and I broke in the swimming pool on Saturday for a few hours...And yesterday, the whole family took a little trip to the pool, which was Kate's first time. Something about summertime just makes you feel good! Certainly helps that the pool is about 1/2 mile from our house!
A few pool-related items:
Love this "puddle jumper" float - it is an approved floatation device - and provides a lot of peace of mind. It came highly recommended by the swim instructor at the YMCA, and Emma even doesn't mind wearing it. You can find it at Toys R Us and Target, but I ordered through Amazon because I wanted a cute color (very important...we have the yellow one).
I just bought this gigantic pool bag...still waiting on its arrival. Can't believe how much stuff is needed for a successful trip to the pool.
We've had a lot of success with Blue Lizard baby sunscreen. I am a sunscreen fanatic, plus want to make sure whatever I use is gentle. It's pricey, but still cheaper than California Baby (which is also good).
And here's your reward for stopping by...some sweet summertime fun pictures.
