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.
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!
