Swimming

We had our first venture into Grandma's pool last week. Tess and Lily loved it! I know we think of California as having hot weather all the time, but here in Northern California, it can be pretty unpredictable. We can have hot days with really cool nights(perfect), and then a lot of wind in the afternoon. So we haven't been swimming too too much this year. My mom keeps her pool pretty cool so if the wind is up no one wants to go in. So we had a hot day, and the pool was warm enough for all the swimmers...most of whom would not allow a photo.

Tess. She doesn't look so happy huh? That's her latest face...it always get a smile, so she does it a LOT.

I am not so confident taking them swimming alone yet, so Grandma was helping.

Miss Lily. She enjoyed it this time, but when she went in the next time, and the pool was cooler, and man was she mad!! She absolutely did not like that cold pool.

Growing up in Northern California I know what you are talking about. We had a pool in our backyard and we got used to swimming cold.

Where are the pictures of all this pool fun?

Your pool pictures are cheering me up on what must be one of our worst days this year! It's cold, windy and it's raining - Yuck! I would really like to be in that pool as well!!!

What great photos! Tess's face is a classic. We have not taken the girls into the pool yet but we really need to get on it.
