So today started as a bit of a disaster! We originally planned to take peanut and James to the seaside. We were already running later after after to pop to the post office (massive ques) and Tesco first, Then when we got onto the motorway about 15 minutes in 3 cars in front us was a big 5 car crash! Luckily it looked like everyone involved had managed to get out of their cars and police were quickly in attendance so we all got around and carried on our journey.
However we soon hit MORE traffic and this time it was at a stand still! We barely moved and people were even getting out of their cars on the motorway!
So we opted to turn around and come home.
We had promised James we were going to go out but as it was already passed lunch time it was a bit later for a day trip so we decided to go swimming instead!
This was peanuts first trip to the swimming pool, She loves her baths so I was hoping she would love the swimming pool as well!
She completly loved it!! She happily kicked her legs and splashed around for 45 minutes before she got a bit hungry (still no tears but she was trying to eat the strap on her costume lol!)
James loved it as it meant he could show off to daddy all the things he has been learning at his swimming lessons recently. Hes been doing so well at swimming lessons and can now swim half a width of the small pool all by himself, He loves going under water (before swimming lessons he didnt even like getting water splashed at him!!) and is doing so well.
James all ready for swimming
Peanut ready for swimming
and lots of smiles after!!
So although our day started off a bit rubbish it turned out fab and both James and Peanut are fast asleeep!
Do your kids like swimming?
