After years of working every summer, all summer, Chris decided at the beginning of this summer that we would take 2 weeks off! No work, all play! This afforded us to take a "vacation" like no other. Chris had the idea to take several "mini" trips that we have talked about doing!! One of those little mini vacay moments was to spend some quality time in Chattanooga with my family! Lily has be dying to spend some time (and the night) with Bentlee and I have been dying for some time at the pool with my Mama! That is exactly what we both got last week!
We set aside an entire day of "just us girls" at the pool!
Here I am swimming with Lily and Bentlee!
Mom "Grandmommy" with her three grand babies!
Lily, Kenslee, and Bentlee
I can't even tell you how much fun these girls have with their Grandmommy!
Kenslee is a busy busy girl! She is ready to walk, but won't let go quite yet! She had fun in the sun with the big girls too!
Even in the 90 degree plus heat, "Bent" and "Lil, "as they call each other, insisted on a quick dip in the hot tub! (I know, I know, kids aren't supposed to get into hot tubs. We had the temp turned down to bath water though and only allowed them to stay for a quick 5 minute dip!)
There was lots of diving board jumping...
...and even a few "shows."
The biggest accomplishment of the day... drum roll please... Lily finally ditched the floaty! YAY! She's a swimmer now! Deep-end-to-diving-board, she can do it all!
Swimming sure does wear you out though! :-)
Lily slept all the way home back to Murfreesboro and I understand Bentlee was quite the cranky pants at softball practice, but it was totally worth a day in the sun splashing away!
