first pool party

Baby SML went to a birthday pool party for her friend SS’s second birthday yesterday at Goldfish Swim School. The party started off with an hour of swim fun for the little ones. We were able to change to our swimsuits in the changing area and put away our bags and shoes into the provided cubbies. We then got into the pool, which can be heated up to 90 degrees. Unfortunately, SML was very reluctant to play in the water yesterday because she was tired from not taking enough naps during the day. We tried our best to entertain her by putting her in the canoe, on the duck foam floatie, helping her “swim”, playing “catch” with her with a ball pit ball, etc. Alas, she only wanted to play in the water if we were holding her.

After the hour was up, we showered off and dressed before sitting down at the table for food. For the party, the employees at the school are in charge of the set up and clean up of all areas. For the eating area, each child had a lei, plate, napkin, juice box and a cupcake. For decor, they had little balloons for all the kids in a pail on the table. Any food and additional drinks were ordered by the parents. A separate area was given to put these items so everyone can go and partake.

It was really relaxing to be able to just sit down and eat as soon as we finished swimming. SML really enjoyed the food. After eating, she was able to play with babies MN and AL for a tiny bit before we had to go. We had a great time at the party and SML will definitely love her bday favor from SS, a new pink contigo water bottle. We can’t wait to try it out.
