Michael's First Swimming Pool Excursion

Yesterday we made a trip down to Riverton to hang out with Stephanie, Grandma Peggy, Jeff, and Diana and to make our first attempt at introducing Michael to a swimming pool. Michael absolutely loves bath time and so we thought he would enjoy it, but we weren't sure how he would react to cooler water.

Dressed and ready to go...

His little swimming trunks are so cute!

***Thank you Grandma Laura for the awesome hat and Thank you Perry and Kristen for the rash guard!

And into the pool we go!


We decided to wait until later on in the evening to take him in so we could avoid as much sun as possible but still have it be warm. Michael didn't fuss at all and seemed to enjoy it, but I think we waited until it was a little too late because the water was a little too cold for all of us. We lasted all of ten minutes before Michael (and the rest of us) were shivering...so we got out...

We gave Michael a bath afterward to warm him up, and after he relieved himself in the tub...he fell asleep.

He definitely loves being in the water, but I think he likes the bath tub a bit more than the pool right now...

yes he did fall asleep in the bath tub! He's done this twice...the first time was a couple of weeks ago but I couldn't find the camera! I guess he just feels completely relaxed in the tub!
