Summer isn't summer without visiting a pool, a beach, a lake, or some type of body of water. I know my daughters love to go swimming, and luckily our complex has a pretty nice pool for them to enjoy several days each week. If you've paid attention to those last few sentences, you may have noticed that I have spoken much about the girls enjoying the pool and nothing about their parents enjoying it with them. This summer I am challenging all of the parents who are like us and refuse to get in the pool to simply DIVE IN!
Summer isn't only about the children splish splashing in the water, but it should also include their parents making memories with them at the pool, the beach, or the lake. I am going to be honest, I have yet to get in the pool with them this summer. I was planning to a few weeks ago, but I ended up with a headache so I just sat by the poolside. We still have a good two months of summer here so I know I will join them before the heat leaves us.
If you aren't like us, and dive in whenever possible I challenge you to do the things that your children frequently ask you to do, and you have yet to make time for it. Time is fleeting with our children so let's put a smile on their faces by diving into the things that they love to do.
Even though I have yet to join them in the pool, I still have been given the opportunity to create new summer memories with the girls. We recently enjoyed Kona Ice which was a fun experience especially since it was so hot outside. Shaved ice is a reminder of childhood for me so being able to share our first Kona Ice's together has been one of the highlights of our summer. I am partial to the Island Rush flavor. It's something about the tropical flavors that just put a smile on my face. The girls like to mix many flavors together which makes the self serve option a treat all by itself. :)
