The Wilde Olive Blog: Let's go swimming!


Let's go swimming!

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Yep that just happened. I went to a public place wearing a bathing suit and then put it on the internets for everyone to see. aak! All I really have to say about that is target - I know your suits are cheap, but I could use a little support (you know where). Now, moving on to my big boy and his luuuv for the watah! 

He is the splash king and went strong for over an hour. Then he seriously crashed, took a short nap and wanted another one. So, we didn't get to stay quite as long as I'd hoped, but it was worth it! In my attempt to make sure we soap up as much summer as I can, insisted on going to Yogi. There is actually a lot to do here if you plan to go for a whole day. It's not anything SUPER nice or special but they theme each weekend during the summer and you can get a day pass to partake in all the activities - including mini golf and outdoor movie nights (you can see the screen behind us in the first photo). We didn't plan for all that this trip, but maybe next time. Maybe when the temps are more in the 80 - 90 degree range rather than 95-100. We did take advantage of the Splash pad/playground area and the pool. 
He did really well in his float, he really liked being in the shallow water and jumping. You'll obviously be able to tell his "before said needed nap" and "after, now I need another nap" photos! We, of course, had company on our little excursion AND the bigger kids had a blast!

Emma refused to look at me for ANY photos. Her prerogative but I got some cute shots anyway! 
/\ This is obviously an after photo. /\
Benjamin basically did his thing, but reminded us he was there a few times! =) I think he's getting more use out of the stroller bassinet than Jonah did, but I'm so happy we have it to share!

This slide was definitely a favorite! 
My niece Emma and our friend Baker loooved it. Jonah when down a couple times too - assisted of course. 

Mama I'm done and just want to be held. 

Our attempt at a family picture! Next time I need to break out the camera when we first arrive so I don't get so many grumpy photos. :/
All in all I'm still glad we went and so happy I have a water baby because Mama loves the sunshine!

By the way...
