Like a Fish to Water

Linus and I have been enjoying these hot summer days thanks to our friends Allison and Gavin. Yesterday and today, we spent part of the afternoon in their neighborhood swimming pool.

I was a bit worried that Linus wouldn't like the cool water since his water experiences only include the bath and a heated indoor pool. However, I had nothing to fear as he didn't even seem to notice. He was too busy watching everything around him. He loved almost every minute of it.

I say almost because today when a kid next to us popped out of the water wearing a huge scuba mask, Linus freaked. There were tears, whimpers, and a lot of thumbsucking before he could return to splashing in the water. I guess when you are really attached to looking at people's faces, a crazy plastic, googly-eyed beast is quite terrifying especially when it pops out of the water below.

Sounds like the "Monster from The Black Lagoon" who could blame the poor kid. gramma B.

We've spent quite a bit of time in the pool too. Makes for a nice summer, doesn't it?
