Ella and I went to a family picnic at my cousin's house this weekend. They (Ron and Judy) have a rather lovely deck and pool (and swingset and trampoline). Ella was very excited to go swimming so we put on our suits and braved the frigid waters. 76 degrees sounds warm, right?

Here are some pictures of the adventure into the artic...


Jumping in...notice the massive diaper? I didn't have a swim diaper so she wore a regular diaper. It probably weighed 20 lbs by the time she was done!

Getting used to things...

Barely holding on...

Look Ma, no hands!


  1. Looks like she loves swimming! How did you like the arm floatie things?

  2. Shoot! I forgot to bring in the swim dipes AGAIN!
