splish splash

I am loving this weather!  Upper 80's in May?  Crazy, but I'll take it!  It's been great being outside so much.  We actually hit up 2 parks yesterday.  We walked to the "Froggy Park," only to arrive and see a zillion kids filling up the entire play area.  I guess there was a preschool party going on.  Don't they know that's OUR park?!  Geez... some people.  Get your own park.
Poor Addie, she had talked the whole way about going on the big girl swing and the whole 45 minutes we were there, it was full the whole time.  So, when we got home, I surprised her by loading them in the car and driving to a different park with only 2 other kids there.  She got to swing to her heart's delight.  

After naptime, they took advantage of the hot weather and "swam" in the pool.  They enjoyed it so much that they were out there for over 2 1/2 hours!  Of course, they had sunblock on, but I didn't think I needed it... paying for that smart choice today with pretty red shoulders.  Hopefully it'll tan instead of peeling...

Addie wanted to wear her "surfer girl" suit.  Got it at a garage sale for $0.50.  Not bad, huh?  She put it on all by herself, "like a grown-up" (that's when she shuts herself in her closet and dresses in private).  Bursting out of the closet with a huge grin she says, "Surf's up, dude!"
Millie likes to move water from bucket to bucket.  Adeline mostly "laid out" like a bathing beauty.

Being very into coloring right now, Adeline recently colored this picture.  We were pretty impressed how well she stayed in the lines, especially since she's only 3 1/2!  She even had an explanation for why the water is green.  "Some grass got in the water."

Millie likes to be in every picture too.  Whenever the camera's out, she automatically goes and stands by Addie because she's so used to us taking their pictures together.  Oh, and I offered to fix her hoodie, but she enjoys wearing it off her shoulders like that.  I think it's the new style.
As soon as the girls' nap time is over, we're heading back out to the pool.  I might try and get a few laps in.
