Beat the Heat

Abigail loves going to the pool, but I am a little freaked out about taking her there with Ellie, by myself. I don't like being out numbered where a swimming pool is involved.

So we improvise. With our stellar drought and watering limitations, I do my best not to waste to much water filling, and refilling her little pool. Once a week or so, we fill 'er up and take a dip.
This week added a new element though. On Monday, we went swimming with some friends. Since I knew I would be out numbered, I went and got a lifejacket for Abigail. One that she could still move around well in. She really likes it. Safety first!
So She wore her life jacket in the 3 inches of water.

At one point, we had Abigail, Ellie, Me, and Mr. Turtle all in that tiny pool. There are moments I am thankful there is no one else around to document moments like that. Although, I'm sure it would have been quite hilarious to see big mama in that tiny pool.

Safety first, Abi! What a cutie pie. Your grass looks about as dead as ours! Ugh! Ellie is absolutely beautiful.
