splish splash

Splish Splash....the kids and I travelled to see Uncle B during the week this week, spend some quality time together and enjoy the warm, soothing waters of the indoor pool at the school where he works. Just the smell of that pool relaxed me as I walked in the doors...ahhh, chlorine, pool towels, and warm humid air. For 2 hours my body let all stress walk out the door and just enjoy being with my great friend and my kids' uncle. Hudson loved the diving well - and had a blast jumping off the diving board by himself to mommy or Uncle B. I think the majority of our time was spent there, and someone held Anna with her feet in the diving well so she could enjoy the warm water (it was warm in the well!), but she isn't big enough to take into there without a lifejacket...and we didn't have a small one for her.
Hudson is a fish - he loves the water and I think Anna is well on her way there! She didn't like not being in the water...and when she was in, she'd blow bubbles and kick and float on her belly. In some ways, I feel like we cheated her because Hudson got pool time ALL THE TIME when we lived in AZ, starting at 6 weeks old. She loves the water, but has only been in pools about a 1/3 as much as he was by that age. (Dear God, if you're reading my blog post, I'd love to have a house someday with a pool. Or a neighbor that loves us that has a pool. That's just a sidenote. :)
