Hello Summer!

We welcomed the arrival of 90* with a trip to the pool. Decked out in her swimming finery:

Madeline preferred to just say on the towel and snack:

But eventually we got her to splash around:

As for Emma, we had some drama when her face got in the water and she pretended that she had never ever been swimming before (never mind that this is our third Texas summer, and before that we lived in a building with an indoor pool). But after about 20 minutes and a threat that if she didn't stop crying we would go home, she figured out how to put her legs and bum down so her face stayed up. She *LOVED* swimming after that:

You've been there for 3 summer's already....it seems like you just left NJ!! It's getting warm here too...the kids ran in the sprinklers last Sat. I love Emma's shades...she is such a little girly girl.

First of all, when did Emma get so big?!? 2nd, how can this be your 3rd Texas summer - I didn't realize you left so long ago. And 3rd, I expect major drama from Asher in the pool, as well. He does not like getting his face wet.

I'm with Emily and Maile - has it really been 3 years? I can't believe it! Such cute little faces in the pool.
