Father's Day in Texas has meant a pool party with friends and food and late night fun for the parents. We have been lucky with good weather for two years in a row, and this year we hit the jackpot by having our wonderful friends, the Kemps in town to share the weekend with us.
This year the pool has been so much more fun, and so much less intimidating than last year with the kids. Gretchen and Alex are so much more comfortable in the pool, and I am much more confident, especially now that Gretchen is officially swimming on her own. We did a full session of crash course swim lessons at The Woodlands Infant Aquatics and they took her from swimming confidently with floaties to being completely self sufficient in the water in a matter of 6 weeks. Impressive.
And little Alex is having so much more fun in the water. He's not quite the aqua baby that Gretchen was at this age, but I think he'll quickly get up to speed now that the weather requires us to be in the pool pretty much daily.
Speaking of water babies, we are always thrilled to have these two beautiful ladies (and their parents) join us, especially when the pool is involved. They are complete mermaids.

Whether baby William was on board with all of this attention has yet to be seen.
