I guess I should have mentioned that Mia liked the pool, sort of. She wasn't too sure of it at first, but she warmed up to it once we broke out the toys and she figured out that she could splash. She didn't even get upset when her face got dunked or when I made her wear her hat. I think her favorite part though was when I took her into the deeper water of the main pool and jumped around with her.
I looked pretty hot in my bathing suit, if I do say so myself. Provided that I remembered to suck in my stomach. I just wish there were a way to suck in your thighs.
Today we are off to the zoo, so brace yourselves for almost unbearably cute shots of Mia marveling at the baby panda and the gorillas and the hot dog vendor and random bits of trash in the bushes. She's easily impressed. I've been teaching her about the animals for a couple of days now, so I expect her to be able to identify each one by making the appropriate animal noise: trumpeting for elephants, barking for seals, snoring for lions (they are always asleep!), asking for directions to the panda house for tourists. (Get me! I don't even live in DC and I'm a snob about tourists!)
Anyway, we'll be back with pictures and sunburns this afternoon. I know you will all be anxiously awaiting a full report.
