let it begin

Today is our daughter’s first official day of summer vacation!  I cannot believe that in just a couple more months she will become a first grader?! This year has gone by ridiculously fast, I’m guessing the arrival of her baby sister may have had something to do with that.

We hit the pool for the first time this weekend.

Our oldest jumped right in to make up for lost time.

The little one was a bit more hesitant.  In her defense, it was a hot day and that water was absolutely frigid! After a little while she was letting us dip her toes in and by the time we left my husband had her in his arms as he walked her around in the pool. She did great!

This morning after breakfast my daughter and I had the following conversation:

“Mommy, I’m finished with breakfast. Do I have time to play?”
“Dude, all you have to do for the next two months is PLAY. That’s what summer vacation is all about!”
“Aaaaawwww, YEEEAAAAH. Bring it!”

Since then we have had the most relaxing day. The baby is upstairs taking a nap and we’re outside on the deck enjoying the gorgeous weather. I’m very much looking forward to all of the great times we have ahead of us this summer!
