A Really Hot Sunday...

We decided it was a good day to set up the wading pool. I set it up early in the morning in the sun so that the water could warm up a little and after eating a picnic lunch outside, I slathered up The Boy with sunscreen (have you SEEN his skin?!?!) and he was all ready for the "pool!"
After his sister woke up from her nap, she had a little lunch outside as well and then had herself her very first experience in the wading pool:
Needless to say, she loved it. Her hat was too small and her swim suit was only size 12 months so she looks a little bit like a stuffed sausage, but I still find her pretty cute. She was so excited to not only be in the pool, but to also find all of her bath toys in there with her. Doesn't get any better than that!
Trying to get them both to look at the camera at the same time while also looking somewhat decent continues to be a challenge...
The Girl still isn't a huge fan of grass on her bare skin so instead she practiced her standing skills (and took about 4 steps!) so she could avoid the grass!
All in all it was a great way to spend a hot Sunday. If we ever move from this house, I will definitely miss this backyard. It is one of the reasons we chose this house. Perfect for the kids! With the prospect of losing it looming in our future, I am appreciating it more and more! Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

I just love these fun photos! Especially the close-up of your daughter enjoying her first time in the pool. I'm glad you are enjoying the backyard as much as you can--they will have photos to look back on and talk about. If there is to be a new place, you will find good things about space too.
