Midwest Summer is upon us and if you have never had the opportunity to experience a Midwest Summer, it is miserably hot and humid.  That said, I would think it would have to be a little better than a Southern Summer...

To stay cool, the minions have been hitting the water both at the in-laws lake house a few weekends ago and they just finished up some swim lessons this morning.

The minions like to get airborn.

Evidently the minions aren't the only creatures trying to beat the heat. I found this little guy on a chair near the pool.

He told little man that he wanted to try the pool as well.

Little miss nabbed him after a while and we found him a shady spot.

That weekend was especially nasty out so I only took a few pictures around the gardens.

What was rather disturbing though was the fact that I only saw 1 bumble. ONE. Usually the flowers are teaming with bumbles around this time of year... :/

This year one of the teachers at our school started teaching private swim lessons. It was only 4 days but the minions were the only ones in the pool which meant lots of swim time and I cannot tell you what a difference those 4 days have made. Both minions are much more comfortable in the water, they know how to breathe, and their strokes are coming along. Maybe next Summer we can swing 2 weeks worth...

They played around a bit today. Little miss is the queen of the rings.

Little man was just having fun floating and messing around.

And of course, they had to get aerial.

Great job, guys! I do have some knitting content, but I need to block it first. Well, first I need to make room to block it and then I can commence with the actual blocking... We have been redoing little miss' room these past few weeks. We're just about done and she loves it!
