This weekend we packed up the kids (and Beanz) and head off to an indoor water park in Niagara Falls.Â It wasnâ€™t as new, big, or kid friendly as this one but it was still a lot of fun.Â The kids slid, splashed and splished for about 4 hours on and off.Â By the end of it they were exhausted.Â And I always take that as a good sign.
Â Maks has turned into quite a water baby.Â He started swimming at eight months and to say he didnâ€™t like it would be an understatement.Â He was not a happy camper for his first round of swimming.Â But by the time the six weeks were over, he loved it.Â So we kept him in swimming.*Â
Â Now he loves it.Â And this weekend proved that.Â He didnâ€™t want any help in the pools, he wants to swim and float on his own.**Â He hated it if I tried to hold him up even if it was to keep him afloat.Â And the odd time that I did let go for a second he really was threading water and attempting to swim.Â
Â At one point this summer, I really was thinking about taking him out of swimming because I didnâ€™t think that he was learning at all.Â But once again, I was proven wrong.Â And I am pretty glad about that.Â
Â *At this point he wasnâ€™t really swimming.Â It was more like splashing around and playing with floaties.
