the secret to a loooong nap? a morning swim! (ellie's first.)

"OK, mom. i don't know about this..."
"hmm... pretty nice."
"ah! paparazzi! get back!"
"yes, i know i have beautiful eyelashes."
"i like it!"
"ooh.. but i think a dead bug is floating toward me."
"yes, mom, i'm smiling for the picture. but i'm cold! let's go!"
"you know you like my bikini."
"i love to swim!"
"..but swimming makes me sleepy."

how cute is ellie in her swimsuit.

i remember the first time my girls experienced a swimming pool. hannah loved it , bekah hated it (the water was too cold). it made my girls take long naps.

i have good news. even though my girls don't nap anymore, it still wears them out. they go to bed early.
and they sleep very hard and late the next morning.
