Swimming Again!!!

This post is gonna take me quite a while to complete so bear with me a bit, I have been working on this post since last Tuesday night. I hope you all would understand that recently we were rather short-staffed in the restaurant. Thanks to Jazzmint for featuring my restaurant again in her blog

Last Tuesday evening we went swimming again but this time there were more attendees and we really have a very great time. In the afternoon it rained heavily, so heavy that one of my car door was leaking (rubber seal problem!) so we delayed going to the pool until past 6.30pm. Actually we had both the pools to ourselves :)

Keith, Nicole, Elaine & I were there a little later than Yong Jin & Co. (Yong Jin, Aunt May & her husband, Uncle Jason & his girlfriend and PohPoh) and they were already so very busy with Yong Jin jumping in and out of the pool.

But he didn't seems to like his float

But rather run around without it

Guess he have more movement freedom without it :)

And the main reason of being late is because Keith's float went missing. Keith & Co. went to the swimming pool first while I search on for the float and I was rather upset because it is impossible that the float went missing as I just saw it on the hanger that morning. In the end I found it at the ground floor, the reason for that is either my maid didn't close the window and the wind blew it out (which to me is rather impossible as that window is where the wind blows in) or the maid threw it down on purpose (perhaps to take it out because Elaine scolded her earlier on) but let's forget about her....!

By the time I reach the pool Keith was already crying his lungs out because his mummy forgot to dip him slowly in the water and would only stop when I carried him. We tried to lower him slowly onto the float but he wasn't happy about it at all...... Guess he got scared by his forgetful mum earlier.

I sat by the baby pool and let him kick the water first then slowly lower him a bit by bit until he is use to the temperature.

We played a bit in the baby pool but he doesn't seem comfortable and Nicole was more like disturbing him than playing with him because she was throwing and splashing water on all of us.
Even Nicole couldn't stay on the duck float too long either and look at her splashing at people.

This is the picture of Yong Jin wanting to go to the adult pool.

Tried to let him in with the duck float. Initially he was ok.....

Then he became really bored

As Yong Jin already moved to the adult pool with his dad, he still maintain is jumping into the pool with his mum's arms in the baby pool and his dad's in the adult pool.
So I moved Keith to the adult pool and got myself wet. Keith was very happy to be in the bigger pool despite that his legs were unable to touch the ground.

I even let him try the water without the float and he liked it even more!!!

When we all wanted to leave the pool as it turns dark, someone throw tantrum and cried because he still wanted to swim.

Yeah.. arm floats r good. He can float and hv more freedom to move ard, esp in the adult pool. But of coz, must still be supervised closely.
