We took the kids swimming a couple of weeks ago for the first time. There's a pool in the backyard and we don't use it as often as the kids would like for us to. Of course they could swim everyday and never get tired of it. This was the first time that Allie got in the water so of course my camera was present. At first she was very hesitant and even cried a couple of times. Eventually she warmed up to it and absolutely loved the water...she had so much fun splashing around and was soaking me with water by the end. It was also the first time that Caleb got in after our near drowning incident. I was very nervous and had no idea how he'd react..at first he didn't want anything to do with the water but I finally got him to come in so I could hold him and once we got him in his boat it was all over. He absolutely loved it and he and Allie had lots of fun chasing after each other. The older two had a couple of their infamous time outs for jumping and splashing around in Allie's face but all in all everyone had a great time!
The two speed racers...I have since seen that Caleb's float has been recalled...I haven't gotten rid of it yet but he hasn't been in it again either. I need to throw it away and find him another one before he gets in again.
This is by far my favorite picture of Allie!!!!!! I absolutely love this one!
As you can see Caleb is double protected! I'm taking no chances!!!!
You can't see everyone very well but it's one of the few that all the kids are actually in the same spot. Documentation purposes for me of course :)
Once she got a smile on her face it was glued on there! She absolutely adores the bathtub so I wondered how she would do and when she was scared I was worried at first. Thank goodness she ended up having so much fun!
