Little Swimmers…

In case we don’t make the cut for the USA Men’s Gymnastics Olympic Team (See Video) we’ve got swimming as a solid possibility. We’ve already got the speedoish swim diapers…now we need to just work a bit on technique and decreasing splash, thus increasing speed.

If only cuteness could score points…





By the way, we tried out the picnic table for lunch before our swim and it turned out rather nicely. The boys stayed put to eat their meal and then swam off the calories. Hose down the table and call it a day! However, I did find two pieces of English muffin floating in the pool, but we were pea free (notice spelling)!

(Left to Right/Top to Bottom): Isaac, Brooks, Clark, Henry with their cream cheese mouths

Thanks to Aunt Kristy and Uncle Ryan for giving us the pool for our birthday present! The gift that keeps on splashing! =)

    I think they have mastered the splashing technique.

    Looks like you guys had lots of fun. Makes me wish I could leave work right now and find some water.

    I was hoping to get my twinkies a little picnic table today at a garage sale, but it didn’t look like it’d hold up much longer so no picnics for now!

    What a nice big pool for all the boys to play in! looks like fun!

    That was an adorable video! Such sweet little guys! LOVED that they were all so into it and loving it! They need to teach my babies a thing or two! (Emma won’t stay in the pool & Will refuses to move.)

    What fun! The boys are looking so grown up. By the way, I rinse our swim diapers out, hang them up and use them again…and again…and again… I’m always up for saving a buck and as long as there’s no “surprise”, it works great!

    You want to be sure to give their digestive system some time before swimming after eating. It can really hurt a small (baby) intestines. Just a thought for you to consider.

    I notice ur lil men have swimmies on. Just a tip. did you know you can wash these and dry them.. then reuse them? 🙂 YUP! just a money saving trip.

    That pool looks fun tho. How funny are they going to be at age 3 in a pool together!

    fyi. I would NEVER consider washing/drying those swimmies; they are not cloth, therefore are extremely proned to holding TONS of bacteria… just as plastic does, so be sure to change those sippies out regularly. Just a tip for new mamas!
