The nice hot Memphis weather has provided us with excellent pool opportunities, even in May. I took Evi to the JCC pool today after work and she thoroughly enjoyed herself! She even got to wear her new swimsuit. The short version of the swim suit story is that the suit cost more than I would have like to spend, especially since we already got a super cute-hand-me down suit that fits her, but this one covers more skin and means less harmful sun rays on my sweet baby girl, so I was sold. Plus, I love it :), and I guess now there are options!
Anyway...back to the pool. Once she figured out the slide in the baby pool (which, if I remember right, it was a frog with an open mouth, and the slide part was the tounge--kinda gross), she kept sliding down, clapping, and getting out to do it again. We were there with a friend, so she caught Evi and I helped her up and she was set! We also enjoyed a massive splash pad with water squirting everywhere. But the problem there was the SUMMER CAMPS. I've always been around them, just never from the parents perspective. Well, a 15 month old and lots and lots of 5-6 year olds don't really go too well together, so our time there was shortlived, but it was still fun. We also enjoyed the lazy river--man, this place has everything! I'll try to get a picture to post. I'm so glad that we have a pool to go to until we move. The pool where we live FAILED INSPECTION and is still closed. Oh well. I'm glad we have a pool to go to, Evi has fun, and I love it all!
