Day 5 the sun was shining and the beaches were open again. Hooray!
Everyone was so excited to be back in the water! After a few hours playing in the surf and boogie boarding a game of splash tag broke out by the waters edge.
Gigi and Papa always make sure they get a house with it's own pool. So after every trek back from the beach we would hop in to cool off and get the last bits of sand rinsed off. This year my kids loved playing in the house pool almost as much as being down at the beach. We spent many hours out there practicing swimming and diving.
Camden is still in floaties and loved posing like this with them. I DA HULK!
Riley is a regular swimming champ and loved trying new tricks, seeing how far she could swim under water, and practicing her jumps. Mom, watch this jump!!!
She's also an excellent floater just like me and wanted to float with her hands behind her head like I sometimes do. Look at that super long W family torso!
Camden started the season off in floaties and by August he started to swim without them for short distances, from me to TG, or from one of us to the wall. It's yet to be seen if he can float like his sister, or if he'll sink like a rock like his Daddy does. Either way I think by next year he will be floatie-free swimming!
