Finally,this day has come! After weeks and weeks of planning taking the girls to the swimming pool before the summer is over,we finally did it yesterday!
Well,I really didn’t swim.I just watched them like a hawk playing in the water—two feet deep.
Also,I took some pictures.This first one was taken by my husband.I made sure to stop by at his work and show him our girls in their little swimsuits.He’s been bugging me many many times to take them to the pool because they will enjoy it.
So yesterday was the time to do it.I freed myself from any work,chores or writing,just for an hour.
They just can’t wait for this.This is not the first time they’ve been in a pool.We took them while vacationing in the Philippines which is two years ago.I’m sure they don’t remember it because they were so little.I paid $3 each girl and gave them shower first.The funny thing is,I didn’t even bother to bring towels to dry them up.I was so excited for them too and left the house without thinking grabbing at least one towel.It’s embarrassing,I didn’t even know how to operate the shower until this sweet girl taught me,”Just push the button,just keep on pushing“she taught me.In our house,we have to turn the shower handle— left or right.
Oh,well! I think that happens!
They met new friends too!Our neighbor’s daughter likes our girls so much.She played with them like throwing a ball.The girls enjoyed so much and didn’t want to leave.Our youngest one (this photo below) bravely tried to keep walking,heading to the next feet of head.I asked her to come back and stay closer. How I just love kids’ curiosity!
The pool closes at 5pm and open again from 6pm to 8pm.Then we went home.
I’m sure there will be a repeat before they close the pool for public.One mother told me that in less than two weeks.I’m not sure how long.Still it makes me happier this time that I can cross this activity off on our summer to-do list. One more activity,though,taking them to art gallery.I’m shooting to do it before the end of this week!With this simple and cheap activity,I can’t believe how much happiness it brought to our girls.They laughed like the water is tickling them. I will treasure this simple activity that brings great pleasure to our girls!
How’s your summer going for you and your kids?Hope everything goes as planned.
