Swimming

A visit to the grandbaby's house on a hot summer day.  Nonna and she enjoyed cooling off in the kiddie pool.  GB enjoyed splashing and pouring water all over her Nonna, who eventually transmogrified into a Troll Bergen and kept dragging the GB Troll into the deep depths - much to GB's screaming delight!
