West Burlington Pool

Josh and I decided to load up the family and go swimming. We originally tried to go to Dankwardt Pool, but even though the website says it's open til' 7pm, the workers told us they've only been open until 6pm for at least the last four years (after watching us pull up at 5:55 pm, unload Jayden, Gavin, our towels, and our bag). So, we thought we'd try out the West Burlington Pool. We had a GREAT time! They don't have a real kiddie pool, but the area is very kid friendly. Plenty of activities, shallow water, and lifeguards. It was a wonderful time.

I finally picked Gavin up a pair of swim trunks today, he was so wound up after Josh dressed him for the pool. He basically laided on the floor and screeched until we got fully ready.
I picked Jayden up a swim suit with floaty pads built in. I told him they were his strong muscles, so of course he had to show them off for us. Jayden's suit gave him loads of confidence, and he was doing a great job jumping into the deeper water, and he was swimming from the side to us.

This was Gavin's intertube, he wasn't quite sure of it at first.
But within minutes he fell asleep, and napped for about half an hour like this in the pool.

Gavin floated for about an hour and half, his toes were very wrinkly by the time we finished up...

While Josh and I were grabbing the camera to take a picture of Gavin's toes, we looked down and noticed that a cold little Jayden had laid himself down for a little break.

I think he was a little tired....That was our day!
