Summer Fun At The Pool

We enjoyed our pool membership so much last year, that we got one again for this summer. I like to spend as much time as possible outside when the weather is nice. Sometimes it feels too hot to be doing activities though, and relaxing poolside is perfect on those occasions.  You can dip into the pool to cool off.

One of the things I like about swimming with the kids, is that they have no idea that they are being active. To them, it's just a fun activity. To me, it gets them outside in the fresh air and it keeps them physically active (an evening swim seems to help them sleep well also).

They can swim, float, jump, splash and have a ton of outdoor fun.  This particular pool isn't overly busy (it's a hotel fitness center, and membership allows access to both an indoor and outdoor pool). The kids know when it's appropriate to jump in and splash around, and when it's not.

There are lots of lounge chairs around the pool deck, offering a great place to relax when not in the water.  I always throw down a towel to avoid sitting directly on the plastic chair (they get hot and skin sticks to them). It gets annoying when those towels fall down though.

My cousin had some pretty cool Olaf towel clips she purchased in the U.S. I didn't see anything in stores here, but I did manage to find lots online.  I went with Canadian themed ones from a store, but Amazon has a pretty huge selection of towel clips. There are Disney characters, animals and some plain ones.  Regular clothespins would work well, but they aren't as fun :)

We have already spent a lot of time at the pool, and with 6 weeks of summer left, I see many more visits in our future.

What's your favourite way to cool off in summer?
