{Swim Lessons}

Well today was the last day of swim lessons! The kids were so excited to go down the slide at the end. Rhett's tall enough to go by himself when we go to the public pool, but Ethan is just shy of being tall enough and it brings him to tears each time. He has been talking about going down the slide non-stop, and luckily it did not disappoint him!

Here are the boys with Adam (or Tarzan as they call him). The boys thought he was the coolest, especially when he smooshed a wasp a few days ago and told them it was just "going on vacation". They thought that was the funniest thing. Now every time they squish a bug you bet that's what they'll be saying.

Kade and I even went down the slide, I was nice and held him on my lap instead of sending him on his own as I saw one Mother do.

Don't you love these cute suits from Old Navy? I've never bought the sets with swim shirts before and I'll never go back now! So much less skin to put on sunscreen!!

Kade's pose when you tell him to smile!

I am so jealous of your sunny pics. I wish we could do swim lessons. We can't even play t-ball right now, the weather has been sooooooo cold!

Cade is a cutie...he looks so different. And girl, you look good in your swim suit...where did you get it?

Brooke said...

oh thanks...the top is from Shade, but from last year and the bottoms are from Target (this year). I ordered some from Downeast but ended up returning them all - they weren't long enough.

Looks like such a fun pool for swimming lessons! Yes, and cute swim suit too! Gavin all of a sudden does not like swimming...he loved it when he was a baby! I would love to go swimming everyday, but he is so hard to go with, in and out of the pool, up and down the stairs! I constantly have to chase him around in my not so cute pregnant swimsuit, not ideal!

Great pictures Brooke. What would we do in the summer in Arizona without pools?

The Bluths said...

Such good pictures! I totally know what you mean about the swim shirt thing. At the splash park Logan wore his whole Spiderman life-vest thingy even though he didn't need a flotation device for a splash park :) Sunscreen on just arms and legs and he wore a hat. Sweet.

Ok, that looks like a pretty fun pool for swim lessons! And girl...you have had THREE kids?! You look stinkin' great in your swim suit Brooke! I love that your boys called their teacher "Tarzan." Pretty funny.

How cute are those boys? And I wish I looked that good in a swimsuit. Heck I wished I looked that good in regular clothes. LOL

Brook said...

How fun! I love those suits from Old Navy, got some for my girls too! That pool is really nice! I'm putting Halle in lessons in August, we'll see how it goes! You do look great for having 3 kids, you're a lucky one! Sorry to hear about your uncle Jake. Oh, and I love that quote you put on the side of you blog too!

Ahhhh, your boys are so cute and you look fantastic!! Thanks for your compliment about singing but you are being WAY too kind. It was a disaster with a capitol D. The original girl who was supposed to sing with us had a family emergency last minute and asked the girl who couldn't carry a tune to come sing instead!! I was sooooo embarrassed. When your mom agrees with you that it was absolutely horrible then you know it had to be bad! Anyway, your kids are darling and your blog is so cute. I'll check in on you again soon. Love, Aubree
