Yesterday was really hot, so Mommy and Daddy decided to finally set up my pool. The verdict is that I do not like it! Maybe I will change my mind when the water gets warmer, but right now it is freezing!
I was very helpful during the set-up process, especially the pumping part. Here I am encouraging Mommy to pump more efficiently:
But then when Daddy put the hose in and started filling it with water, I started to get a little concerned. And then when I saw my pink lifejacket come out, I was downright worried. This next picture was taken shortly after my brief encounter with the 65 degree water. As you can see, Mommy is smiling, but clearly I AM NOT!!!
I would like to say for the record that I valiantly attempted to swim by kicking my little legs as fast as I could. Mommy was holding my lifejacket handle the whole time (about 8 seconds), so I knew I wouldn't drown, but it was just too cold and wet! I think we have to get a solar pool cover.
Today was much cooler, so Mommy and Daddy taught me how to rollerblade! At first I didn't quite have the hang of it because I was not used to my chariot going so fast. But then I realized that it was pretty awesome!
The best window to look out of is the bottom one, because you can lie down while you take in the view. Daddy pushed on the way there, and Mommy pushed on the way back. After a fair and impartial decision making process, I have come to the conclusion that Mommy provides a smoother ride.
While the ride is very smooth, I am not sure that Mommy has the best rollerblading technique. But check out how we zoom right through that stop sign. That's called a California Roll, baby!!!
I hope everyone else had as good a weekend as I had!
Bye for now,
