We have been going on walks in our neighborhood. Here is Lizzie dipping her feet in the River Nidd. You can see Anna is next to her in the water, she is wearing her wellies, but you can't see them.

Playing with the water table or rather on the water table. Anna got on the water table the first year we bought it and apparently it is just for sitting on, but they both fit happily in there, so, hey.

Next so as Anna doesn't get all the pool credit, here are a few videos of Lizzie from swimming class. By the way, since I was filming and keeping her safe, it is not the best camera shots. But first off we have her floating in her arm bands all by herself!
Next, here she is going under the water. She has been going under since about 6 months old and has never cried once. For the sake of the video I did kind of pull her to come in a bit, but usually I let her come on her own time.
At the end of every class all the babies go down to the stairs and lay down for twinkle twinkle little star. Check out how relaxed and content she is, oh and notice the other babies crying in the background, it is definitely something that takes a bit of work to get comfortable doing!
Next, we have a video of Anna and I on a date to the Darley Mill, which is a cool little mill and restaurant and shops just a bout 2 miles from our place. Here is Anna giving her instructional video of how to blow bubbles in her milk (which I had never seen her do before).
Here is Lizzie and her cup instructional video, not so much with words, but check her out!
This one is not for the faint of heart and this one has nothing to do with water or milk. Lizzie wanted to get into the sandbox with the other kids so I stripped of her clothes (she still had on her nappy/diaper) and let her at it. Then she had sand all over her mouth, so I decided to take a little video and to show how it got there. Most people would probably just take her out, but I thought I'd capture the moment.
Last but not least is just a bonus picture that I love. I took this in front of our house whilst doing Airplane with Anna. I LOVE the beautiful blue sky. We have had so many blue sky days lately and after the grey clouds of winter, it just makes me happy!
