swimming

we have been spending everyday at the pool since we have been back. and we got some new toys to play with in the water.

we got some "snickernoodles" as mason calls them. they like swimming on them without their floaties and the adults all like to steal them to float on.

at the suggestion of annalee we got some mermaids and pirates at target. they have been a big hit.

we also got goggles for the first time. they. love. them. this has been huge for helping them learn how to swim. as soon as mason put them on he said, "i can breathe under water now!"

we have been loving our time with friends and family swimming so far this summer. and since it has been 108+ everyday the pool has been a necessity!

Wow! I'm amazed at how much they can do already without having taken swimming lessons! Very impressive! They must have been born with gills ;)
