when we were on vacation we went swimming a few times so little boy could have some fun and unwind after a long day in the car. he enjoyed it, but not as much as i had hoped. when we head down to adam's dad's house, we enjoy jumping in their pool too. little boy still isn't sure about it. he likes the water, but usually prefers to be on the outside. baby girl, however, loves the water. she could splash all day long. she's even been known to fall asleep while floating in her baby float.
