It's summer!

The weather is gorgeous and Mommy joined a fabulous new gym (Lifetime Fitness) ... that means it's pool time!
It was their first trip of the year and they were beyond excited. Unfortunately, it was a tad ill timed.
It was sunny and hot as we arrived. Once we got into our suits and slathered in sunscreen, the sun had disappeared behind some fairly ominous clouds and there was a slight chill in the air. We swam for about 20 minutes before the lifeguards closed the pool due to lightening in the distance... those 20 minutes were filled with squeals and laughter though!
We showered, got dressed, and walked out of the locker room to people rushing down the hallway. I looked out the window and it was pitch black. Hail the size of golf balls was falling from the sky. What the heck?!
Just as we reached the front door, the Alpharetta tornado sirens started going off and the gym staff ushered everyone into the locker rooms. We had to wait there for about 20 minutes until they got the all clear. Fun fun.
By that time it was around 7:30 and the girls were getting hungry. Luckily, there's a great cafe inside the gym, so we decided to wait for the rain to let up and grab a bite there. We got home just as the rain stopped, and the girls ran and splashed in the puddles until way after their bedtime.
So hoping that our next trip to the pool is slightly less eventful.
