Pool Time --- Marco . . . Polo!!


Last week as July slinked away and August sneaked up on us, Maddy and I realized that she only had about three weeks until school started!!

Just how did summer zoom by so fast???

We decided then and there that we had not been to the pool nearly enough and vowed to visit at least three times a week, weather permitting!



The weather surely did permit as one afternoon last week, it was 99 degrees with a
103+ heat index!

That's a day just begging for some pool time, isn't it!

So, I left work early, surprised Maddy and off we went to the swimming pool.

Unbelievably, it was not crowded! I'm guessing that the kids that go right at
1 PM had already left and the after-work crowd was not there yet.


No matter, it was perfect -- no crowds, cool water and a silly girl!

What a combination for summer fun!


Maddy usually never wears her hair in piggies.

She rarely wants it pulled back or up, but on this particular day, she agreed to piggies so that it wouldn't all be stuck in her face when swimming! I think it is most adorable!

Generally, I like her hair a bit shorter, like just at chin length as she has a little face, and I love it when her hair gently frames that sweetness!



And then, before we headed out to pick up Muffy at puppy daycare
(where she also enjoyed some pool time),
Maddy was able to chow down on her all-time fave meal -- chicken strips and fries.

I'd call that one perfect summer afternoon! Yum yum!

That truly does sound like one perfect afternoon! Love her "piggies". My daughter used to wear them all the time, but doesn't want them any longer. It's amazing how summer is almost over. I'm actually looking forward to the school year starting. I welcome the routine. ;-)

What a great day, she looks like she is having so much fun. I can't believe the summer is gone. I start back to school next week and the kids come the following week.

I love Maddy's piggies and she looks so happy in the pool:)We have not gone to our pool much this summer either but we have had a TON of rain and afternoon thunder storms. Hopefully we can go for the next few weeks.

Cute pool pictures! I especially love the piggy tails! We, too, have been trying to soak up the last few weeks of summer. I think we have been to every waterpark and pool in town! Carson wants to go back to Star City Shores one more time before school starts. Maybe you and M should join us!
