2 'Babes' in the pool

Last week, Isla started her swimming lessons at Fountain Park pool in St. Albert. The program she is in is called 'Babes'... haha, cutest name ever. After a day of 1 year shots (she had 3 needles in her arms in the early afternoon), we thought swimming would be really good for her as she loves loves loves the pool. However, we were wrong. She whined the entire swim lesson until I decided to escort my delightful child out of the pool 5 minutes early where she cried the ENTIRE time we undressed her, the ENTIRE drive home and the ENTIRE bath until we put her to sleep at 6:30pm. She slept until 7:30am. Needless to say, I hope she enjoys the rest of her lessons or this could be a long 8 weeks. We will definitely see how tonight goes. However, Cam looked on with the camera in tow. Here are some highlights.

Despite her grumpiness, I just loved this lesson. She is just growing up so so so fast. I can hardly believe that she is 13 months old.

  1. So cute! We did a swim class with both kids back in the spring. The kids didn't really care about anything other than splashing, and Rob and I felt so stupid doing the little activities and songs but it was fun!
