Swimmin' at Papa's

We went to Bakersfield, CA to visit Dave's dad and brother this weekend. The weather was great, so I was excited to take Colin swimming. This was his first swimming experience, and he loved it! Colin loves his bath, so it's no surprise he took to swimming.

It was so much fun to watch him figure out what to do with such deep water. Colin would actually splash his hands, kick his feet, and grunt trying to keep his head above water. (We were really holding him up, of course.) He would swim to Momma, and he made such a terrible face trying to keep his head up on the way over, that we were shocked when he would turn himself around to go back to Daddy. Over and over and over.

Needless to say, he slept very well that night.

I love going to Bakersfield for those reasons too (swimming and a good night's sleep). Too bad we weren't there at the same time.

He looks so cute swimming.

cute little guy. Riley loves to swim but hates the fact we have to smear his whole body, head and scalp included in suntan lotion. I tried to tell him to blame it on his Dad, but he just wasn't have'in any of it.

He looks pretty brave! My kids always scream in the water, especially at that age!
