Nothing Beats the Heat Like a Dragon Pool

Well according to the manufacturer it's a crocodile, but my little one calls it her "dragona" pool. I think a dragon is more exotic and fun, so that's what it is. She's having lots of fun climbing her dragon's tail and sliding in. I think she is a little disappointed that I won't follow her lead but the manufacturer states that no one over 110 pounds should use the blow up slides and I'm taking their word on that point.

What a Difference a Year Makes

Last year she wouldn't even get in her tiny wading pool. She would help fill it with water and then put her hands in and play with the water from the side of the pool or maybe if she was feeling brave walk in it. This year she is not only more than happy to be in the pool, she is taking up most of the pool. When she tries to get down and swim she has to scrunch up her legs and gets frustrated. Not to fear, we are upgrading to Wading Pool 2.0! See next post.

The middle photo is the little one showing me how to dive. Opps! No diving in the shallow end! I really don't know where she learns certain things.
