Unfortunately, Lance had to work most of the day so he wasn't able to come. I met a girl friend there who loves the pool just as much as I do. Will did SO good. He chilled in his car seat for a while, spent some time in the stroller, and also on my chair under the umbrella. I tried my best to keep him out of the sun as much as possible. The umbrella I had was a bit annoying though, so there were a few times when he was sitting in the sun for a few minutes. I made sure to load him up with sunscreen, but apparently I missed a spot. A crucial spot. His nose and cheeks are bright red today. Every time I look at him, I feel terrible. Luckily, he isn't showing any signs that it is bothering him, but I still feel bad. I should have done better keeping him covered, or just not stayed so long. We were out in the sun for 5 hours, afterall. Nevertheless, there is nothing I can do at the point and I learned a good lesson. I am excited to go to the pool again, but next time I want to actually take him into the water. That means a trip to the store to get him some swim trunks, swim diapers, a floatie, and a good hat. I think he would really like it. He is always so content during bath time, so I think he would enjoy the pool.
I also got a bit too much sun. I have never been a sunscreen person. I have always been an oil person. I love to put on some tanning oil and just lay out. Because it has been such a crummy summer (weather wise), I haven't really been able to lay out yet and get a good base tan. So to spend 5 hours straight in the sun without sunscreen the first time out probably wasn't the smartest idea. And I wasn't facing the sun straight on so my left side got a bit more sun. My left shoulder, chest, and top of my left foot are the worst. I'm really really hoping I wont peel, but I doubt I'll be that lucky.It'll probably tease me and be really tan for a week or two, then peel once I finally start to believe it wont.

It was SO good to get out of the house and actually have some adult interaction. I am definitely looking forward to it again soon.
Here are a few pics I took before we went to the pool. This is easily my favorite outfit for Will.
