One of the best things about summer is the first swim outdoor swim of the season. William and Charlie have been taking swimming lessons at the local YMCA over the winter months, but really, there is no comparison to having the time and space to swim in an outdoor pool. No teachers, no learning goals, no levels - just water, and sun, and fun. We are double blessed to have a wonderful Pop (Jim's father) who lives just up the street from us and keeps a lovely outdoor pool where we spend a whole lot of time. Here are a few pics from the first or second dip of the season. Uncle Steve, Auntie Mindy, Baby Griffin, and their dog Abby joined in the fun.
