Pool's Open for Summer! {So, here are a kazillion pool pictures.}

We've probably been swimming in our pool for the last week and a half or so and it still hasn't quite warmed up to where I like it.  This afternoon it got up to 84˚ and I still froze {and poor Sydney did too}.  We are about to hit triple digit weather {for the next five months} and so I'm sure it will get to the 90s by next week.

Today was the first time that David got in our pool {he's been taking Olivia to the heated pool at Nana and Poppy's for months} and so it was a little easier to get some more pictures of the girls.  Olivia blows my mind in the pool.  She is such a great swimmer and she absolutely loves it.  It's clear that Sydney is going to follow in her big sister's footsteps.  Sydney wants to be just like Olivia and she wants to do whatever Olivia is doing, so there is no keeping her in a float where she is just sitting down.  So after our first attempt in the pool {with just me and both girls}, I went out and got her a puddle jumper floatie to wear and it has worked out perfectly.  She loves to jump off the side of the pool and in one day she taught herself how to move forward by kicking her little feet.  We are in for a real treat with these two in the pool this summer.  They are having so much fun.  {And, I'd be lying if I said I didn't adore dressing them in matching swimsuits!}



{This lasted no more than 5 minutes.}









Olivia's neighbor friend gave her this dress and she has worn it just about every single day for the last week.

The girls sure do love their pool. They both are going to be top-notch swimmers. I love their matching swimsuits too.
