Mini Vacation 2011- Day Three

On our third day on our mini vacation (really, just a long weekend away, but the only one we've had in almost 10 months!) we drove out to a marina and used their pool for the day. Alot of the hotels or clubs will let you use their pool if you buy a meal or a day pass from them, so, at about the cost of a meal at Chili's, we got to use a beautiful pool, surrounded by mountains and the ocean and had a great lunch!

I was the most excited about swimming because I would get some sun! I'm all about using sunscreen and being wise, but I always look healthier when I am not pastey white! Can I hear an amen on this one?

It was Grace's first time in a pool, and, as an ex competitive swimmer, I was hoping that she would like the water. We don't have a swim suit for her at this size, so we just let her take a dip in her diaper, which turned out to be hilarious when it filled with water!
Grace LOVED the water (yay!) and stayed in for about two thirty minute sessions, with a nice nap on a lounge chair in between. Luckily the pool was covered with shades or her nice porcelain skin might have gotten roasted (don't worry, I also put baby sunscreen on her and covered her up whenever not in the pool.)
Love this family picture of us- these are few and far between these days!

I hope Grace always loves the water and that she learns how to be a safe (and good) swimmer as soon as possible!

That looks like a beautiful way to spend the day :-) I think it's a really good idea to start getting babies used to the water young so they're not afraid of it when they get a little older. Glad Grace loved it!

You with your naturally gorgeous tan skin. But I'm not jealous :) I'm glad Grace liked the water. She's has an excellent swim teacher for a mom!
