Swimming in April!

That's right! We went swimming during the first week of April! It was in the low 90's today, so I thought I'd make the best of it and take the girls swimming in our baby pool. Molly was beyond excited so we started getting ready for our little swim. It kind of took awhile to get ready....

Putting on bathing suits: 15 minutes
Filling baby pool with water: 15 minutes
Bringing water to a boil (to add to the freezing hose water): 12 minutes
Locating the sunscreen that I hadn't seen since last summer: 10 minutes
Lathering two babies up with sunscreen: 10 minutes
Gathering up toys and towels: 3 minutes
Having the girls pose for some pictures in their matching suits: 3 minutes

Total prep time for our swim: 1 hour and 8 minutes

Molly sitting in the water: 2 minutes
Molly splashing in water: 2 minutes
Molly putting all of the toys in the water: 2 minutes
Molly throwing all of the toys out of the water: 2 minutes
Rayna deciding that any water cooler than bath water is too cold: 2 seconds

Total time in pool: 8 minutes and 2 seconds

Oh, well....I guess that's the way it goes with little ones! We dried off, ate dinner, and went on a walk. It was still a great evening!
