Fun In The Sun!!

Happy first day of Summer. Finally it is officially summer! The weather here has been ok. We have had some very hot days, which this early in the season in very unusual. But a lot of rainy days as well...and of course mostly on the weekends. Hopefully it turns around and we have more days like the one below.

I LOVE summer. It is one of my favorite times of year. We have a long winter in this area. So when summer comes it is full of parties and festivals. We are so busy in the summer with all different events. I absolutely love it all.

We bought Belle a little splash pool for the backyard. It was very hot on Friday so we set it up before we went to the zoo (pictures coming soon) so it would be ready for when we got home. The water was still a little chilly and I had to clean out a zillion bugs that apparently thought they could swim but Belle seemed to love it. At first she was a little unsure. So I grabbed some of her bath pals and she was fine. She slowly got more and more use to it.

Belle's cool crab pool. I wanted to get her the blue fish pool...the hubs grabbed this one and we didn't realize until we were home. Oh well, they are the same exact pool just different colors.

Sprinkler action!

She got more and more use to it and even started moving to the sides to grab at the sprinkler. I did learn that her bathing suit that she has only worn about three times now is getting very small on her. Looks like it is time for a new one....or two.

I am so excited for this summer. It's our first one with Belle. I can't wait to take her to the Lawn Fete's, and to the fair. Her first 4th of July, and her first family picnic. We plan on getting our resident ID cards so we can take Belle to one of the 4 town pools we have. I also for the first time since starting at the bank, have 4 days off in the summer. I have never taken vacation time in the summer. I can't wait!


  1. Hi! Nice to 'meet' you! Your daughter is adorable in her little bikini. I hope you have a fantastic summer! I'm visiting you from MM, hope you visit me too!

  2. Such an adorable little girl! We use bath toys to get my daughter used to the pool too, worked great. I love summer as well. Last year Isabella was brand new so there wasn't much we ca do with her, but I"m super excited for this year!

  3. Love the pool. Don't you hate it when they wear something a couple of times and then grow out of it. I feel like Rylie only wears some of her clothes once or twice. Maybe we will have another girl and re-use the clothes.


Leave me some comment love!!! I love hearing what you have to say!
