A weekend in the pool

It's hot with a capital H here at the moment. Which meant we spent most of the weekend getting the pool ready for swimming and then the rest of the weekend in the pool. I love that we have a pool. Especially since there is so much gardening in our yard to do. A dip in the pool after gardening is delightful. 

Lulu wasn't too happy about swimming with us, but was overjoyed when placed in her blow-up chair. The independence it gave her was just what she was looking for. We buzzed her around the pool for ages in it. And boy did she sleep well Saturday night.

What's your favourite way to cool down on a hot day? I think this weekend is just the beginning of many more hot days this summer.


  1. Lovely Alison! We are huge fans of the swimming pool & teaching my kids to swim is the BEST! So much fun to be had. The best part is Josh does all the maintenance and we just swim in it! Chasing floating balls is great for little ones and singing lots of rhyming songs with actions...we did one term of a mums & bubs swimming class when Leo was small & it taught me so much - it was excellent. So good that I then trained up to be an Austswim instructor! Love to see happy faces having fun in the water and just like you said - sleeping so soundly later on. Enjoy!

  2. Lulu's serious face in the picture of the two of you is priceless. And she sure looks like she loves that floaty thing!

    Oh! To have a pool during the hot days of summer! How lucky you guys are. Enjoy!
