We've enjoyed going to the outdoor pool off and on over the last few months (when it hasn't been raining... we've had record amounts of rain this summer). I still have my hands full with these two because Eli thinks he's invincible and swims too deep while Charlie doesn't want to be as deep and goes off in another direction. The city pools don't allow you to use flotation devices, so I really have to be careful and try to keep an eye on both kids. Next year will be easier when they are both swimming more independently.
They love pool toys like these dive sticks and we've managed not to lose them all (at least so far).
