Splish Splash , Swimming in the Winter

untitled-0043.jpg

Since Bradley had a three day weekend we decided to head over to a new indoor pool facility to check it out. It was just built, and it is beautiful. Bradley is going to be taking swim lessons here in a few weeks, so I wanted him to be comfortable.

Bradley had a blast, jumped right on the slides and swam away. The whole family area was perfect for him. Towards the end of our visit he told me he was going to put his head under water, and he did it! A few trips back to the surface resulted in swallowing some water, but he seemed to recover quickly. Not much crying!

I am hoping that we will start this summer off with a big fish, and a little fish in training!!


Ellie was SO much fun in the pool.

She just giggled and splashed.

She was so talkative! Just babbling away, saying This is the best Mommy!

Then I would swim her around and her little feet would do a froggy kick. Adorable!

I can't think of anything more adorable then Ellie in her tutu swimsuit and Bradley at her side?!!

I didn't even know about this place. It looks fantastic! Doesn't it feel so great to get your kiddos comfortable in the water from early on? I see swim play dates in our future! :)

I want to go! What a great way to get out of the house in the winter! I hope I can find an indoor pool that's just as great as yours!
