We are in Tally having a great time. This is our fourth day here and that means we are all pretty relaxed and settled into our vacation schedule. Today, that schedule included some pool time at a very generous friend's house with our buddies seen above in the picture. The girls are water bugs. I think they would stay in the water all day if we let them. We might try that when we get to Palm Harbor this weekend.

Ms. Margot is absolutely fearless. She runs right off the side and into daddy's waiting arms. He lets her splash right down into the water and then scoops her up and she has nothing but a giant smile on her faces as she blinks the water out of her eyes.

Grammy and Ada practiced swimming. I am pretty sure she thinks she can breathe the water. I had a problem with this boldness recently. I went to a friend's community pool that had a huge 2 foot section for little guys to play in. Our girls have never been in a pool that shallow (other than a wading pool). Instead of walking around in the water like the other, more normal, kids... my little kittens assumed the above position and went right under the water.. and made no attempt to get up! This was alarming. I of course grabbed them out post haste and then my friend Jenn and I spent the rest of the time trying to get them to put their feet down and walk around in the shallow water. My goodness. This was not an issue that I ever thought we would have! Ada finally got the hang of it.. but the texture of the pool bottom was too much for GoGo.. maybe next time.

Look at that little butterfly! A fearless flyer.

The first thing we will do is put up the fence for those little water bugs. Glad you are all having such a good vacation. I will see you very soon. The lights will be on for your arrival. Love, G-Grandma
