Well, I haven't been fired *yet* but I'm sure that's what you're all going to do when I tell you that for the 2nd day in a row I didn't take any pictures!!!!!!!!!!! I know, I know....I'm an awful blogger, and what ever will my girls do now when they are grown and looking back at pictures and can't find any from July 25th, 2012? Maybe some counseling will be able to help them work through that trauma ;-)
We had fun today though! Raya had swimming lessons again...and she's getting good! Good as in working the system I mean LOL. Today they were supposed to dive for water toys and put their whole face under water. I kept my eye on Raya and she was dropping hers strategically so she could reach down and grab it with just her *chin* under water haha. The one time it got too deep she went and got an unknowing teacher and convinced them she simply couldn't find it and then he reached down and handed it to her :-P I even saw her go up to a teacher with a big smile, holding her water toy proudly, and she told them "I did it!"....and they said something like "good job"....not knowing she never did put her face under....little stinker ;-)
I had told Raya this morning that our plan for the day was swimming lessons, lunch, and then a pool playdate. Well in my mind I knew I meant lunch at home---but Raya *thought* I meant lunch out to eat....so cue world's most dramatic tantrum at the pool after I said "let's go home and eat lunch"----she was crying "but you told me we were eating at a RESTAURANT!" ...which I did not haha. Anyways, I eventually compromised and went through the drive through for some french fries, to go with her dinner at home--guess I better specify more carefully next time LOL
After lunch we met my good friend from school growing up at the pool for a play date! She's off in the summer and with us both being so busy we hadn't gotten together until today. She has two boys who are 2 and 5 I believe. So anyways, we had fun! But ran into the same problem we run into every time--Raya wants to swim all day in the "deep" water....Brielle wants to swim in the deep water too, only she refuses to stay in her floatie or let me hold her haha. So swimming is not very relaxing with her. Today she even threw a tantrum in the freaking pool---as in threw herself on the ground tantrum, only imagine her shock when she threw herself face first into the water haha. We lasted about 1.5 hours I think though, so really better than I expected.
And now that you know the ins and outs of our day, that's all I have for you all!
To feed your picture fix though, feel free to read this post from exactly one year ago, to see what we were doing last year! Can't believe how much the girls have grown!
