Friday Babyblogging: Swim Party!

One of the things no one tells you about parenting, of course, is that you can rarely get good shots of your children actually doing things, because if you're taking pictures, you're not preventing them from killing themselves.

It's a dilemma.

So these are strictly of the clothed/blanket variety. But there's a large swimmy lake right there, trust me.



Check the t-shirt: Gummo had one like it last weekend.



The lake is beyond that tree back there. It's, well, lakey, but there's a nice shallow part and it's mostly sand on the bottom, not slimy weeds. In this weather, you take what you can get.



Though initially skeptical of the water, SP got to like it. But what he really liked was laying on the grass on a blanket and watching the leaves move in the wind. He loves that.

I'm calling social services. You horrid parents, letting your babies swim in lakes. There are monsters.

It's not Lake Champlain, NTodd.

Speaking of which, the 6YO asked if he could fish in Lake Champlain. I suspect he'd need license.

Not to nitpick or anything --

Rosie's Beatles shirt has a picture from the 1960s Beatles cartoon show.

Mine was an Al Hirschfeld drawing.

Friggin' liberals never check their facts!

How are SP and Rosie getting along these days? Has she decided he's her favorite babydoll yet?

No silly, that's the ponds that have monsters. Lakes have trolls.

The 6yo will not need a license in NY (not req'd for under-16) or VT (not req'd for under-15).
