a sing along story.

you might remember when a certain former synchronized swimmer, and bathing suit obsessed (that is still a reality) aunt gave eliza this for Christmas...

a few weeks ago whit and i took the girls to st. louis for a camp friend wedding. (i ended up getting sick with the flu, or maybe it was the enola virus, after the wedding, and missed out on the whole reception!)

before we left i thought "maybe the hotel has a pool!" this adorable bikini is still too big on eliza, so i picked up a cheap (more modest, daddy approved) suit at once upon a child.

unfortunately the pool was not indoors. so eliza never got to model it.

the suit was too cute to go wasted, and she is quickly outgrowing it. the weather was warm the other day so i thought she could have some fun in the yard.

i dumped her toy bucket, filled it up while she napped, let the sun warm that straight from the hose water, and waited for her to wake up.

ralfy is in visiting so we had fun dressing eliza up, getting out a beach towel, water toys, and a blanket for us to sit on.

we took a few pictures of eliza

and her rolls.

then came the big moment. she was about to go "swimming" for the first time! i scooped her up, walked to the bucket and realized it was completely empty!

"there's a hole in my bucket, dear liza, dear liza.
there's a hole in my bucket, dear liza, a hole!"

either way, she had fun playing in a bucket.

and we got some cute pictures!

maybe next time bean.
