goodbye, summer!

Well, summer, it's been fun! Like, really fun. Possibly the MOST fun summer I've had since Eric and I started dating...11 years ago! But our pools and splash parks are now closed for the season, and our swim bag is preparing for hibernation.

Rooney likes to be around water, but being in water is a completely different story. At least it was until this past weekend. We went to the aquatic center with my family and Roo finally got comfortable with getting wet! (My dad forced her down a little water slide and then under a waterfall and after that she wasn't afraid anymore. Witnessing it made so many lightbulbs go off in my head about why I am the way I am after growing up with a dad like that. Haha.) Anyway, it was amazing and so much fun to see her smiling and splashing. Until we tried to leave to go eat dinner. She was the last one to get out!

It's OK, Roo...we'll plan an indoor water park adventure for this winter!

How cute is Roo's swimsuit from Sunuva? Eric and I are huge fans of rash guards for Roo. They keep her skin protected (Sunuva's UPF 50+ swimwear blocks 97% of the sun's harmful rays!) and it's also super easy to change her diaper if needed, because it's still a two-piece suit. For little girls I also love the striped rash guard and the Mexicana dress!

This is a really well-made suit - much nicer and thicker than her Old Navy suit - and not something I would normally be able to afford (Rooney's clothing budget is only $10/month, so we always shop sales and get a lot of hand-me-downs). If we went swimming every day, I can tell this suit would hold up really well. The embroidery is amazing, the wooden buttons on the arms add such a cute detail and I'm pretty sure those bottoms wouldn't be see-through after a summer at the pool like most other suits would.

I totally get that this is a luxury swimwear brand, so I'm excited to be able to give away $150 for one of you to spend at Sunuva! Now is the time to snag these awesome suits on sale! (FYI - they run true to size. Roo is 2.5 years old and wearing size 2-3. Rooney has worn her suit several times and it has washed really well too.)

Rooney's suit (top / bottomswas provided to us by Sunuva, but this is not a sponsored post. I am a genuine fan of their brand and am grateful to get to share it with you. Good luck! And thanks, as always, for reading Snappy Casual!

P.S. I got brave at the pool too! Check out this video!
