We had a mini staycation
Just to be cruel, the weather was awesome in the morning.. which was just rude, considering Hunter’s birthday party the day before was such a wash out. It was bright, sunny, and gorgeous!
We went for a dip in the pool after breakfast, since it was still so sunny. The water wasn’t that warm though, since it rained the entire day before. Didn’t stop the kids, they jumped right in!
So, see the picture above? Carter was sitting on Dad’s knee, quite merrily enjoying dipping his legs into the water. I didn’t bring his swimmers though, so he couldn’t have a swim – a bummer since he’s never been in a proper pool in his life.
Well, Carter had his first swim after all!
Or should I say, dunking? 😉
Where Dad was sitting was a step, which he was resting his feet on. The jacuzzi jets were on, so he didn’t realise it was a step, and thought it was just a shallow pool. He got up to walk with Carter and…. *PLONK*!!
Fell straight into the deep water.
At first I wasn’t sure why Dad had jumped into the water.. especially since he’d told me just 2 minutes ago that he didn’t want to swim. Then I realised “EEEEEEK HE HAS CARTER! WHERE IS HE??” and then I realised he was carrying Carter, who had gotten dunked in with him. I think everyone else was just in shock!
Carter, quite unhappy with the shock of the cold water, screamed blue murder for a couple of seconds until we wrapped him up in a warm towel.
So the poor bub’s first swim probably wasn’t the most ideal. Hope it hasn’t scared him off swimming forever 😉
