Note - this isn't a video, don't press play - it's just this one page of pictures.
On Friday, July 3rd Kevin had a day off. We ventured out to "The Beach" (Rigby Lake) but there was a BIG thunder and lightning storm. So off to the Aquatic Center we went instead - with a great view from the van of the beautiful lightning. We had a free summer pass the kids earned from the Summer Reading Program at the Library. Not bad, all we had to pay was $3 for 3 life jackets.
Audrey was swimming a lot on her own. She is getting good! She loves to do underwater tea parties and of course, like mother like daughter, lots of flips! I love her back float. And, she finally went down the slide for the first time.
Kyle was going crazy in the water as usual. He really loves it too. He was brave enough to go down the slide also and that shocked me. Audrey and he went down it 10 times. The last time he went down it, he twisted his body so he landed in the water facing the slide. He called it his "trick" and I was impressed!
Kaden was having fun on the stairs as usual. He wanted to take swimming lessons so bad last year (he was too young and was ticked when the other two got in and tried to jump in himself) but he wouldn't really let me do anything with him in the water. I am going to sign him up for lessons and see if he'll get a little more comfortable. He does blow some mad bubbles, though!
It turned out to be a good time for all!
