We celebrate Memorial Day weekend much as many Americans do every year- poolside.
We drove about an hour away to a seaside town where we visited a hotel's pool. For the price of a lunch we could use their pool for the day, and in 110+ degree weather, any way to beat the heat is better than none. This pool was covered with sun shades and was empty for the entire day! Our friends the H family and us had the pool to ourselves.
Grace (and us) loved spending time with her "uncle" B and "aunt" A. She lights up whenever she sees B and will often choose to go to him rather than us!
Being from the Sunshine State, and also, you know, being human, I crave the sun and have been loving the time outdoors we have had in the last month!
Our afternoon was cut short around the five hour mark because I ran out of swim diapers. Mom fail. I forgot that I hadn't put her in one for the drive to the pool and only packed two. It was a perfect time to leave though, as we all got hungry and thirsty, and we got home in time to skype with Ian's parents and put Grace down at her normal time. Our success of the day? NO one got burnt!
