Last weekend we had the pleasure of babysitting our de-facto granddaughter. Her name is Summer and her father is my daughters boyfriend. She's a cute little thing and just 5 yrs old.
The boy in the photos is my nephew Dean, whom many of you have met here before once or twice.

On Sunday we took the kids swimming. Dean is 6 yrs old and is having swim lessons both at school and twice a week after school. He does well in water over his head. Summer is yet to learn so we clad her in a swim vest. With temps of well over 35 degs C, hats were essential.

That definitely looked like a fun time. I think I'm leaning to the first one (but all are good)

Looks like they love the water. I remember when I took swimming lessons, I was so proud when I could doggy paddle!
