Moms and Dads, bring the kids out for a fun day at the pool, and have a blast learning about water safety at the H2O Expo, sponsored by All Children’s Hospital, Florida Safe Pools.org and the University of South Florida-St. Petersburg. When I spoke with Jean from All Children’s this morning, she said they are all getting very excited for this event and are busy working on last-minute details. It should be a lot of fun!
