Swimming fun!

The boys had a swim birthday party to go to, and they loved it. It was their first swim of the summer, since I tend to stick to the splashpad when I take them by myself.

Brandt is a natural fish. He can swim in the deep end, but knows to stay near the side in case he gets tired, then he can grab the side. He loves throwing pool toys to the bottom and diving down to get them. He has even started doing hand stands and backflips in the water. He would live in the water if he could.
Brayden is no longer afraid of the water. Well, he was never actually afraid, but he never wanted anything to do with it, because he was afraid it would get in his ears. He has gotten past that, and asks daily if we can go swim. He loves wearing a life jacket and grabs one on the way in the pool, I guess it gives him more confidence.
Bryson really likes the water as well. The pool we go to has a shallow end you can walk into the water in. Bryson stays at that end for the most part, but for some reason he seemed to be drawn to the deep end. He would sit on the ledge and kick his feet, he was people watching for a while.
Brennan wasn't sure what he thought about the water at first. He is almost asleep here, so I guess he decided he did like it after all. Instead of cake they did cupcakes for the kids. Bryson doesn't play around when it comes to eating. lol He tried to get the whole thing in his mouth in 1 bite.
This is what happens when you give a 2 year old a staining cupcake. lol
And when you give one to a 4 year old as well. lol
