Water World

This summer looks like it's going to be a busy one - that is if we ever get summer time weather to stay around here. It's been in the 40's at night with occasional frost and today the high is only in the 50's. Please, please bring on summer!!

I signed Daniel up for swimming lessons starting in June. It's a two week course with 1/2 an hour swim time each day. I'm really looking forward to it! I don't have to be in the water which I think will be fun for Daniel! He loves to assert his independance! The class may be a little below him as he already goes underwater and swims with floaties, but the next class up jumped straight into jumping into the deed end, which I would have a heart attack over at this point. Next year, I promise I'll be able to handle it!

We also signed up for tickets to a mobile aquarium at our local library. We're really excited that. It's completely free and a large aquarium brings an aquarium truck to the library. They have several large tanks with different habitats in each. They also have a movie and lots of "touch tanks". Daniel is so into the water world right now. He wants to see dolphins so bad, I think he can taste it. The only issue is that the closest aquarium with dolphins is in Baltimore and almost 4 hours away. If anyone knows where we can go see some, let me know.

Check out my Mother's Day gifts! The plant Daniel planted at daycare and took care of it until he gave it to me!! I LOVE it!! The other flowers are beautiful too and I was so surprised to receive these also! I hope everyone had a great Mother's Day!

It looks like you had a VERY nice Mother's Day!
My munchkins LOVE the water too and every time Cooper swims (which is every day), he says "Mommy, I'm a dolphin! Do dolphins bite?"
Funny boy!

Was looking for things to do at the beach when we go in September....found this.

Click on "Plan our Visit" then "Up Close and Personal" and the "Boat Excursions"

We actually saw some dolphins swimming in the early morning surf last year when we went (Mari couldn't see them cause she really didn't know where to look).

Let us know how the swim lessons go. We've been thinking about putting our girls in, but have been a little hesitant.

Happy Belated Mother's Day!

How fun that the aquarium is coming to your local library. What a fun thing for kids to do/see.

I get nervous about swim lessons too. I like to have the control and be in the pool with them. Hard to watch from afar. I'm sure he'll do great!
