As promised...

I mentioned that Hayley and I went to the pool the other day while we were having our Girl's Night/Day Out. She had spent the previous night with me and we managed to sleep in until 9am! This is a record because she is usually up with the daylight, which means so is everyone else.

After we rolled out of bed, we decided to fix breakfast--no cereal here--we actually made eggs and toast. She's into the sunny-side up eggs so she can dip her toast into them; I had a cheese omelet. Then we decided to "let our food settle" before we headed to the pool. Here are some of her serious poses in her stylin' new suit....

I know...I laughed at her dramatic focus too. Here are some others while we were at the pool... (This one is her swimsuit model pose. Where she comes up with these, I'm not sure, but it was pretty funny.)

She also had to show me how she can jump in the pool:










I think the best part is the video I took of her showing off her swimming skills. There were a couple of times I thought I was going to have to jump in after her because I thought she was going down, but she always grabbed the side of the pool or took a minute to tread water.



I made her take a break after this, and you can tell by her face exactly what she was thinking about that...

Overall we had a great time at the pool! This one has the water shooting off of the sides so it created a "bubble land" that she enjoyed playing in...with the "cheesy" noodle of course. (It's cheesy because it's orange like Cheetos.)

After our swimming adventure--we were both pretty tired, so we somehow managed to climb the three flights of stairs to my place, Hayley hit the showers, and I made lunch--chicken nuggets and buttered pasta. (I know, not the healthiest, but it was either that or stale crackers. I really hate grocery shopping!) By the time we finished lunch, it was time for me to hit the shower, while Hayley watched a movie. It was so late, that we had to hurry to get to our meeting place with her Mom on time. Oh well--maybe we'll have more time later this summer. Next time we might go to the movies. There's a few cute ones I think she'll like--we'll see.

Her swimsuit model pose is adorable.

Hey, is that an Austin Powers beach towel, btw?

No--the towel is actually an aquarium with fish on it. Austin Powers would have made it that much funnier though. She's a trip.
