I love summer. Love love love love love. The entire month of June passed for us in summer perfection. We were in a groove that worked out just wonderfully. (I won’t say perfectly because of course there are rocky moments of kids fighting and a messy house.)
We played with friends, we talked, we danced to our “summer songs,” we ate ice cream, we BBQed, we sat on the front porch and ate Popsicles and we swam. Those are some of our favorite summer traditions. Every year as summer approaches my boys and I start to talk about all the fun things we are going to do during the summer. And all of the things listed are things we eagerly anticipate.
I think our #1 favorite thing that we do all summer is the swimming. We get a pool pass to our favorite local pool and meet up with friends there once a week. The moms sit in the shallow end with the little ones while the bigger kids play in the pool. Perfection.
All this talk of swimming had me thinking back to sweet memories of the past. Other summers filled with swimming. And favorite pictures I have of my kiddos swimming in the past.
Here’s a few I thought of:
Love the Scuba Masks
And the pink boat
One of my all time favorite pictures. True Brotherhood.
And this one goes WAY back. He’s 1 here I think. He’s 8 now.
I need to get some cute shots of my younger kids now too!
My new beach bag is getting lots of use this year. (Yay!)
Want a peek inside to see what we take on all of our pool outings this year?
What’s In My Beach Bag?
- Snacks (which technically aren’t allowed at the pool we swim at but we smuggle them in anyway)
- Goggles (did I mention I love kids in goggles?)
- Our pool passes
- Pool toys
- Sunscreen (it foams-how cool is that?!)
- Huggies Little Swimmers swim diapers (those are essential with a toddler)
What’s in YOUR swim bag?
I ought to buy stock in Huggies Little Swimmers. I’ve used them with all 4 of my boys when they were little. They are so handy to have on hand.
(In fact-can you spot the Huggies Little Swimmers swim diaper in one of my memory pictures? There’s one in there!)
Just a quick heads up that Target has a coupon for $1.50 off the Huggies Little Swimmers diapers right now.
I just bought some last week. Look at my cutie sporting his Huggies Little Swimmers:
Happy swimming and happy summer!
