One thing the boys really enjoyed during our vacation was the unlimited supply of pools at the resort we stayed at. I swear, you couldn't walk 30 feet without seeing another pool, or water slide, or even a lazy river that you could float down on an tube.
When we arrived we thought that the day would best be spent relaxing and swimming. Especially after the 18 hour drive.
The photo below is Jackson's "cheese" face. Trying to get him to smile for pictures ends up with either a "no" with a quick turn away or a scrunched up, closed eyes, cheese grin. I love it!
We got to see Drew go from a kid that hated having water on his face to a full blown fish. He was jumping in the water, going underwater, and attempting to swim. It was so great to see him really dive in and enjoy it!
Jackson? Wow. You had to have all eyes on him at all times. He was not afraid of the water at all and would bail off into the pool without a drop of fear. He would even hold his breath and go underwater. There were a few times he ended up with a mouth and nose full of water and he would giggle. He is so fearless and obviously a natural born fish like his mama was at his age.
After seeing how much they enjoyed swimming (and how fearless Jackson is around water) we signed them up for swimming lessons. They both start tomorrow and I can't wait! Hopefully it will keep me from being so nervous when they are around water!
