I really did pack swimsuits

On our very quick hop skip and jump to Houston, we had to hit up Grammi and Gramps’ pool.
In the afternoon, she went for a swim with Mr. Serious, Grandma Pat, Grammi and Cade. She had a great time and decided it was time to get out when she got all pruney.
She came inside got dressed back in her clothes and was hanging out. Then, she realized everybody was back outside. So, of course, she went back out.
Grandma Pat had her feet dangling in the pool, so in typical fashion, #1 did the same. Then, she wanted a ball (or something like that) and just jumped right in. Clothes and all.
And she immediately remembered she had her clothes on and didn’t know what to do. I hear the look on her face was priceless.
I was called outside and grabbed my camera. What was I to do?
Snap a picture of course. This was shortly after she took her skirt off and just went in her shirt and undies. I think she was a little worried I would be upset.
Nah. I thought it was pretty hilarious, really.
Then, the next thing I know, Grandma Pat has #2’s feet dangling in the water.
She said “I can’t deny her this fun!” At this point, what the heck. I’ve already got one kid in the pool in her clothes, why not two? And, then there’s full submersion!
So, even though we had their suits packed and ready to go, my girls went swimming in their clothes. But, they sure were cute doing it. (Of course, cousin Cade was fully prepared with his trunks on!)
