I am loving the sun fade look right now.
I am also loving the pure joy that can be seen in a little girl learning to swim and achieving her goals step by step.
I took ‘M’ swimming last night for some one on one time together. We have been in the water many evenings this summer and it’s fun to see ‘M’ learn new things week to week. Some of the tasks have been taught in swimming lessons — but many have been learned from simple play. Since she is able to play and swim without being held constantly, I was able to snap some pics before getting in the water. Once I put my camera away and got in the pool with her it was serious playtime. ‘M’ jumped in and out of the pool over a hundred times before she was tired enough to call it good.
Fade is the new fad for me. It doesn’t work with everything but it sure is fun for just the right batch of pictures. Check it out…
As you can see, the little mermaid swam with us (she usually does). Ariel is the best water/bath toy ever! This doll has kept both of our girls entertained for hours. We’ve had her with us on most swimming outings this summer so I was glad to get some pictures of this. A good summer ’09 memory.
Thanks for looking. It’s a different look but I like to experiment. This satisfies my need for sun faded creativity today.
