Pool Season

Someone, somewhere, decided that the pool season officially started today, so naturally, the neighborhood pools opened. Now I do have to say that growing up we always swam in April, but that was Arizona, afterall.

Kirsten would not let us miss this first day though. She is such a swimmer and has had this day marked on her calendar for over a month. So after dinner tonight, we packed up the swim bag and headed to the pool. It has been reaching 80 degrees the past few days, but it still gets pretty cool at night. I thought that the water was equivalent to ice water.

Here is Kirsten showing off her new Ariel swimsuit - which, by the way, is a size 8!
She even braved the splash park.
Jeremy and I only managed to make it ankle deep, but Kirsten had no problem jumping right in and swimming for an hour. She did have a little trouble getting on the turtle by herself, and we were not about to come in and help her. She also amazed us by walking all over the 3'6" section of the pool. She could not do that last year!

Overall, it was a fun night. It will probably be a few more weeks before we become regulars though.

Seeing pictures of Kirsten in the pool actually made me look forward to warmer temperatures so that we can come swimming with you! That water must've been so cold--Kirsten is sure brave!

WOW! Water already--wish we were there so we could play with Kirsten. Love, Grandma Starnes

Oh man, I'm jealous! I wish it was warm enough to swim or at least have the pools open. What a little fishy Kirsten is!
