We have spent almost our entire Memorial Day weekend poolside with our two princesses.
These princesses...... not that plastic ones above, although they were the first toys to make their way into the water:)
Reagan seemed to prefer the small tupperware containers from our kitchen instead of the real pool toys.
They kept her occupied for hours and every time we turned around......
She was cluthching one of them with her tiny hands, or her big sister was handing one to her:)
It was a joy to watch these two spend endless hours out there splashing around and being silly in the sun.
Within the first hour that the pool was filled, Reagan lost her footing and toppled into the water face first. We swooped in and had her head above water again in no time. Even though I was right there watching her and I knew I would get her up, it feels as though it is happening in slow motion and you can't grab them fast enough. Just another reminder that you can never turn your back, not even for a second, because that is all it takes.
After that she was a little timid about going back in, and found other "things" to play with and keep her busy.
But before long, she was ready to give it another try. Back in the pool she went!
And when Sarah flashed me the "no more pictures Mom" look..... I put the camera away and the real water battles began. Even Daddy got in on the fun which led to a chase with water flying in every direction.
Little did they know that I have an arsenal of water balloons just waiting to be filled up for the water battle of all times......... Nick loves them, so I am saving those for a weekend he is with us. Something tells me he won't be digging the princess pool:)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Holiday Weekend!
Can you believe it is already June?
For those that are interested, the Princess Pool was purchased at Target and so were the girls' bathing suits. The suits were only $10 a piece. I love it when I find cute clothes for a bargain price....and when they have both the girls sizes.
