First Day in the Pool + Old Navy Swimsuits

IMG_1203“Just because the water is too cold for you doesn’t mean we don’t want to get in!”

I’ve probably heard this statement 1,000 times this month.  Let me tell you, this water is freezing!  I agree, it looks appealing, but no thank you.

However, it does not stop these fools from taking the plunge.  It amazes me how resilient children are when it comes to cold water.  You might find me in the pool towards the middle of June, but not a DAY before.  But I promise I’m 100% OK reading my book in a lounge chair.  Or, catching up on my writing assignments – my deadlines don’t seem to care that we declared Thursday our first ‘pool day.’ 

IMG_1202I bought the boys new swimsuits this year.  Preston really didn’t need one, but what you buy one, you have to buy the other or it’s just “not fair!”  That reasoning doesn’t apply to most things, but when it comes to bathing suits, I’m on board because we wear them every day.  Plus, we’ve learned that it’s always a good idea to keep extra around for guests, should a need arise.  And a need will always arise – we’ve learned that too.

IMG_1311I am SO IN LOVE with Old Navy bathing suits.  That probably comes as a shock to you guys.  I only rave about Old Navy every third (or so) post.  What can I say?  I’m a fan. I will say, however, that I am disappointed in their selection of swim shirts for the older guys.  I mean, do teenagers not wear them? I bought JP two XL shirts in the little boy section and I think they’ll work. This year, anyway.  I have found that they stretch out pretty quickly, so we’ll see.

IMG_1345This is our friend, Harper.  The boys love it when he comes to visit and thankfully he likes the pool as much as we do!

IMG_1389The whole afternoon – everything from the Old Navy suits to the water – was perfection. Of course, they’re always starving when they get out of the pool…
