"Just keep swimming, just keeping swiming....."

Today we got invited by our good friends D&B to go swimming at our brand new pool in town. I was a little hesitant at first because we didn't know if Denay was too young or if she would like it, but, we figured there's only one way to find out, so after a big group pizza lunch, we headed off to the pool.
Denay was a little fussy at first (because she was really tired) and after about a half hour she fell asleep. I let her snooze with me while Trev enjoyed the slides and diving boards. I passed her off to Trev and she woke up so we were able to play a little more and she loved it! I was so relieved that we didn't have to leave after 10 minutes with a screaming baby.
Just as we were ready to leave Trev ran to the car in his wet shorts and bare feet and grabbed the camera to document Denay's first swim.........
:: Mommy and her girl ::
:: The three of us ::
:: The whole gang. D&C left before we took this picture. It' so fun with everyone's kids (Sydney is missing), Denay, Michal and Tyler. And Becca (brown swimsuit) and Natalie (blue swimsuit) and Chelsey (missing) are all pregnant! I am so extremely grateful that we are able to call these awesome families our very good friends.
:: Waiting to get changed ::
:: LOVE this shot. I like the pool mommy! ::
:: All dressed and ready for dinner ::
After such a great experience I have a feeling we will be going to the new pool quite a bit!
*Side note - all us mommies and daddies and babies were all huddling together hanging out and I had a realization of how parenthood changes you. I told Natalie and if I was this same age and single and unmarried, and saw all these people my age with babies I would feel bad that it's so boring and you can't enjoy yourself. But now having a child, it is SO much more with them....

Christy, you look awesome! If I didn't know better I would think there is no way a baby was in that tight belly of yours not too long ago.

Looks like you had a fabulous time swimming....and I love Denay's bathing suit, by the way.
