If you have read my previous Summer Fun posts, it may appear that we have a social calendar chocked full of activity and excitement: farms, splash parks, playgroups, ice cream at Mickey D’s, the zoo and hanging at the mall. Yeah, we’ve done all of those things, and had a great time doing every single one!
But my good friend Stacy politely pointed out that I have posted all of these once-in-a-while things and have neglected to post what we do almost every.single.day.
Our normal daily schedule is to wake up, eat breakfast in our jammies, and pack the pool bag with lunch and fresh towels. Then slather on the sunscreen, change into our swimsuits and drive to the pool. We stay all day and arrive home just in time to shower and eat dinner. Heck, some days we never even get dressed.
Our bronzed skin reflects the amount of time we spend in the sun. Before I hear about all of the negative effects of the sun’s damaging rays let me just say that we got those tans through 50 SPF sunscreen that is reapplied at regular intervals as recommended by the manufacturer on the package directions. Honest. I’m all about safety, baby.
My favorite spot at the pool is a lounge chair on the zero entry beach with my feet in the water, a frosty Diet Dr. Pepper in my hand, and my friend Stacy at my side.
Molly’s favorite spot is in the water. I swear the girl has gills. She is a fish.
Here’s a glimpse of my little Esther Williams. I am far too young to actually know who Esther Williams is, mind you; I only remember the name because that’s what my parents used to call me at the pool when I was a kid. Okay, I may have seen Esther once or twice on an AMC rerun or something, but I am definitely too young to really know who she is. Honest.
The next stunts are just too difficult to capture with still photographs. We must move to video!
We are rarely at the pool alone. As I said before, I am on that lounge chair next to my friend Stacy. Molly is in the water with her friend Mia and Mia’s siblings Max and Megan. For this I am eternally gratefully because if they weren’t there
I would have to actually go in the water Molly wouldn’t have near as much fun.
Molly and Mia, best buddies!
Can I just say one more time: I LOVE SUMMER!
