We took the kids to the pool, Marz was in with them for about 2 hours while I enjoyed the chlorine filled ambiance with a book (didn't feel like getting wet today). They are now well worn, with luck they'll nap. I did have an idea for a terrycloth swim gear bag, so you don't have to bring a towel, you just use the bag and toss all your wet gear inside. It's not a bad idea, but I don't know if it'd be worth pursuing.

Pari is watching Wizard of Oz, 40% chance she falls asleep in the hour. No telling with Kiyan, he can keep going even when tired.

How would you make the outside water resistant?

I mean, once I use a towel, it's soaked and then it's hard to put down somewhere (like in the car) without soaking the carpet or seat.

To be honest, the towel is usually only in the car long enough to get home and into the wash, so a damp towel on the carpet for 20 minutes doesn't bother me. But when I think about it, a waterproof or water resistant fabric like polyurethane laminate (like raincoats) on one side (or just on a portion of one side) would enable a person to roll up the damp swimsuit and wet part of the towel bag into that portion for transport.

But good call, I didn't think of that.

OOh, it could be a partial bit of it that the rest sort of rolls into... or it could be a waterproof pillow that turns inside out.

I tend to leave damp towels in places I shouldn't.. that's why I think of it.

I like the inside out idea, having it like a reversible pillowcase so that it can be turned terrycloth side out for a towel and waterproof side out for a bag makes the most sense.

Cost of supplies, that's another matter. Polyurethane laminate isn't cheap, I'm not sure how much other water resistant materials cost.
