Water Girls

Memorial Day weekend finally brought some warmer weather around here.  Good thing, since we had a party to thorow and houseguests (Aunt Kara & Uncle Josh) to impress.  We showed them the super-cool fountain by PNC Park.  Needless to say, it was a hit.  We ended that weekend with our first visit to our neighborhood pool for a potluck.  We enjoyed it so much that we coughed up the membership fee so we have access to it all summer long.
One of the many perks:  cheap swim lessons for the older girls.  They are becoming so comfortable in the water.  I love it!

We also love the grills and tables there which make picnic dinners easy as pie.

 Carrigan's not quite old enough for lessons yet.  So she puts on her suit, grabs all of the pool toys, and plays in the kiddie pool with her daddy.  When she woke up from her nap the other day, she asked to call him to say "Daddy!  Swimming!  Water!"

Speaking of water, we also spent a lovely weekend at the Ryan family's lake house in West Virginia so far this summer.  Lots of good pictures of that here. Kellie and I went for a morning run, leaving behind the dads and fully dressed, dry kid near the beach.  I came back to this showcase of wet pink pants. Supposedly Carrigan led the crew in tumbling in. I should have known water was going to be a theme for the summer.
