Swimming!



Doggie! Come swim with me!


So, when looking at Cherie's post on swimming, I am still a little bit jealous of outdoor pools. But, truth be told, I am a bit lazy, so I'm sure we wouldn't have gone to a regular pool near as much as we have now been using Ashlyn's little pool. After our first try, with the lame bit of water, Ashlyn has really enjoyed the water. She likes to crawl across the pool, and then back again. She likes to throw the ball out of the pool, and then watch me retrieve it for her. She loves the slide and splashing and everything. I wasn't planning on going swimming today, but Ashlyn tried to crawl into the water, fully dressed, and then threw a major fit when I didn't let her swim. She continued to throw this fit as I put her in a swim diaper and then her suit. She didn't get it until she was in the water. Then, tears stopped. So, it's a hit!

I'm so glad she likes it. It was fun to see her play in it.
