Another pool trip


Today I got really adventurous and took all 3 kids to the pool by myself. It wasn't too bad. I didn't have any problems keeping up with all of them. Of course I had to hold the boy in the water because he still tips over with his arm floaties but all in all it wasn't bad.

They all had a good time and little man had not been in a big pool since last summer. He was scared at first but then he started liking it. The highlight of our trip for him though was the Powerade( which I got for free today with the grocery game). He sat on the side and drank almost 3 sippy cups of it.

I decided to try a new hairstyle for Macie when we went. I just put it up in pigtails and then twisted all the way around and used a small hair scrunchie to keep it in place. She has very thin hair so this worked great for her. It kept it out of her eyes the whole time. Makayla's hair is WAY too thick to even attempt this but at least it worked for one of them.

It was a fun trip although I am SO tired now. I need a nap more than they do.

I wish Payson was old enough to go to the pool. He'd just scream the whole time.

I love Macie's ponytails- great idea to keep it out of her face. Are those mosquito bites on her neck? My girls are covered in them, so just wondering ;)

Makayla's smile is so pretty in the first picture.

Ariana,
The bumps on Macie's neck are not mosquito bites. A few months ago I noticed some bumps that looked like pimples on her chest and I immediately asked her doc. He said they are pretty common in kids and will go away on their own within the next few years. They are already starting to go away so they are a little darker and obvious right now since they are healing. :)

I have been fighting mosquitos like crazy here though. They keep getting in our apt.
