What started out like this…
….actually turned out to be really fun!
The water was too cold for Greta at first. Uncle Matt (Chris’s brother) let us come visit the pool at his condo. It was a perfect day for swimming. Low 80s, low wind, lots of sun!! After a few minutes, Greta got used to it and we all swam as a family.
Greta hardly looked up the whole time because the sun was SO bright! I smothered her with sunscreen–even in her hair, but the reality is she needs a little hat and mini sunglasses to call her own.
After about 30-45 minutes, we thought her little skin had enough. She could have swam longer by this point though. She was really kicking and enjoying it. I was just a worried mom and didn’t want her to get burnt. After swimming, Greta snuggled up in Chris’s arms and was asleep before we even got to the car.
Chris and I made one stop before heading home: SubZero Ice Cream. Today, my summer began!
