Just Keep Swimming...

My kids love to swim. They can swim up to three times in one day. Eat, swim, eat, sleep, eat, swim, eat, sleep, eat, swim.... Hannah has had her "backpack" since last summer. The strap on the bottom gave her an atomic wedgie. She would always say, "Mommy, my backpack's in my tooshie!" I found a new one at Target and bought it. She was so excited to try it out. She said, "It not in my tooshie anymore." I love that little girl...

Naturally, Gavin got the "old" backpack. He did pretty well his first try. You can really tell he feels like a big boy now. I still have to heavily supervise him, but it's nice not to have him climbing all over me.

It was a treat to swim with Daddy. Hannah and Daddy had a fun time jumping off the waterfall together. Kevin took her to the top of the waterfall, held her and jumped. Hannah wanted to do it again, and again, and again.

My sister snorkling... she's such a dork!

Gavin loves to play catch...

We love swimming, and I love the fabulous quality of a nap the kids take after they swim. It's really a win win situation.

"tooshie" is a good one. better than "bum bum" or "sit down" (yes, it has been called a "sit down," just ask rachel.) and this REALLY makes me want to go swimming, like now.
