Our Little Fish

We took Eóin to the pool last night for the first time this summer. He loves to "swim" in the bath so we knew we had to take him soon. It was like his dream come true. We started off at the kids play area where he mainly just played at the edge with the fountains. Then he saw some kids kinda swimming and got down on his belly where he said "look mommy, I'm nemo" :-) All our pics are of this area - we need to get pics of the other ones next time.

Kids Area - we did go as far as the steps, but that bucket on top fills up with water and then when it's full dumps it out over everyone and wouldn't you know as soon as we got to the steps it dumped on us and Eóin wouldn't go near it again.

The much safer fountains

Splashing

I love that it is so shallow around the edge.


Next we got on the lazy river. I put the inner tube around my waist and then sat Eóin on the edge and we floated along. He made up a song along the way about going on a boat.

Last, we went to the big grown ups pool and I think this was his favorite place. It is 2 feet at the edge so it was half way up his belly. He loved going up and down the steps and then jumping in the water. He would even go under and didn't seem to mind! Pretty sure next year he will be able to swim. I can't wait to go back with him. He was just soooo excited and happy. One time he just looked at me with a huge grin and said "Mommy - I'm having fun!!!"
