Hello, Summer!

Yesterday marked the first swim day of the season for Md and me!

My family gathered at my grandpa and grandma's house to enjoy a day of swimming and pizza.

It was really nice to see everyone together, especially the kids, even though they tend to pick on each other and argue/ fight occasionally...it's still a good time.

Our family has been cursed blessed with mostly boys, so the shenanigans should be expected, right? ;)

I can't wait to see what they are like when they grow up...

In my family, it's basically mandatory that you know how to swim, and LOVE it!

We put the little ones in the pool as soon as possible and usually have them swimming by 3 or 4 at the latest. My sister was even jumping off of high dives by age 4--thank gawd, Md isn't that brave! I'd have a heart attack lol.

Swimming with my family always brings back great memories! Underwater contests, handstand contests, races, shark, Marco polo,water volleyball, etc...

I swear there were summers that we practically lived in the pool...

And after seeing how well Md slept after a good swim...

I now understand that there were perhaps ulterior motives for our parents love of the pool.

But anyways, it was a nice day and a much needed break for Md & me...

How is your summer going so far?

How old were you when you learned to swim?

I'd love to hear from you! :)

Thank you for reading!


  1. Glad you had a good day! I love tired kids too, lol.

    1. Thanks! Haven't seen you around for a while! Thanks for stopping by :)

  2. Such a simple thing but can be culturally defining! My 4 year-old twins are taking lessons for the first time (one is very brave and the other is not!) and they sleep SO well afterward that I take them to the pool most days just for the nap time!! Great pics - thanks for sharing.

    1. That's so great that they are learning to swim at a young age! Being able to swim can really come in handy!
      & It is amazing how well they sleep after a good swim...totally worth it! lol

      Thank you for reading, Allie! :)
