What happens when you get to the pool only to discover that the regularly scheduled Mommy & Me time has been cancelled for the week? Why you walk the lazy river with a baby of course. First with the current, then, which is significantly harder, against it. When it's time for a break you sit and splash on the long shallow steps.

Like a lot of babies Amelia adores the water. Which means our swim bag has stayed permanently packed this summer, ready to go at a moment's notice. At the pool I can never decide which part is my favorite. Playing in the water together, or afterwards, when I take her swimsuit off and the back of her hair starts to curl, lounging and eating snacks under the giant umbrella as we air dry. It's summer in all her splendor. Needless to say we'll be so sad when the outdoor pool closes for the season.
