Britney Spears was clearly in the mood to be a lady of leisure.Taking a well-earned month off from her 'Circus' tour,
She spent the weekend by an LA pool with her favourite boys – Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, who's two.
The singer fussed tenderly over her sons – both now sporting buzz cuts rather than their usual longer styles, and necklaces bearing their initials – as they frolicked in the water at a luxury hotel.
When playtime was over, the mother of two wrapped each of them in a big towel so they wouldn't catch cold.
While she's loving being a hands-on mum, a new romance has also been putting a spring in her step.
The Louisiana girl – who is happily dating her agent Jason Trawick – was showing off her gorgeous curves in a peppermint green bikini.
On Saturday, the Womanizer artist – who's dropped two dress sizes - was seen chilling out over cocktails in the resort with a female friend. On that occasion she was flaunting her figure in a hot pink two-piece.
But soon it will be back to work for the 27-year-old. The second leg of her North American tour kicks off on August 20 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
And in November, the pop princess jets off for her first ever concert dates Down Under with performances in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
