My utopian vision of Isla’s first summer included days lounging in the garden, while she paddled in our (epic dinosaur!) paddling pool after a walk out in the sunshine… Oh and then I remembered that we live in England… So I have been VERY patiently waiting for an opportune moment to get out the paddling pool & let Isla and her baby friends loose!

That day was today!! Finally! I invited a few of Isla’s friends over for a picnic & a splash in the pool!

Isla is wearing her TotsBots re-useable swim nappy! It comes in two super cute designs and is seriously comfy with stretchy fabric that will even catch a number 2! It’s got a soft microfibre interior & is 100% breathable!

Scarlett seems pretty impressed with it! ūüôā

But back to serious business… splashing!!

Fred held his own with all the ladies & showed them how it’s done on the slide! Hopefully Isla will be big enough (and brave enough!) to enjoy it properly next summer!

Swim time over, it was time for more monkeying around and exploring!

Baby Poppy (or Pop Pop as she is known) and Isla are the cutest BFFs & make a great double act, chasing each other around non-stop!

Of course, the second we got them dry & into fresh clothes they both decided it was time to get back in the pool… I let Isla get in and get soaked again, after all – how many days are we actually going to get to enjoy the garden this summer?!

After lots more fun, dancing¬†and playing it was time to deflate the giant dinosaurs and get ready for dinner! Scarlett was pretty disappointed that the party had to end.¬†Hopefully it won’t be too long until the next time little one!
