my little mermaids

Something happened to my sweet girls during our stay in Hawaii.

My sweet girls became part fish while we were there! They took to the water so naturally.

We would wake up each morning around 6am, they would eat breakfast (in their bathing suits!) and then we would go down to the pool and they would swim and play in the water until their little toes and fingers resembled raisins.




They would only get out of the water to either play in the fountains or eat a snack.






In the beginning of our trip, they were only playing in the baby pool (around a foot and a half) and by then end of our trip they were "swimming" in over 7 feet of water (with vests of course!)

I have decided to enroll them in swimming lessons this summer. Can you believe their own mama doesn't know how to swim?

so cute! looks like they enjoyed themselves, I remember those "Hanabata Days"=childhood days! where you just want to stay in the water all day long and not eat until the parentals start yelling at you to eat something!

hope you have a good week!

ADORABLE!! looks like they really had a fun time in the shower! my mom doesn't know how to swim either but she does water aerobics and she enjoys it, maybe you could start with that??? my hubby can't swim either.. i've always wanted to teach him though, it's pretty relaxing and a great workout too!!
