We took Sean swimming at a local city pool today. He was shivering and didn’t seem to enjoy it all that much. Nathan and I took turns alternating between playing with Sean and swimming laps in the pool. I tell ya, swimming is a difficult sport! You really need to be in shape to swim very many laps. I’m not a good swimmer at all, so I mostly did a lame backstroke for several laps. I was pretty tired afterwards!
Afterwards, we went to the Botanic Gardens and Aquarium again, this time with Nathan. The Butterfly pavillion has opened and I was fortunate enough to get a few really good pictures of the “flying flowers” while they were still. Sean seems to be afraid of the butterflies. Go figure. He tried to kill red ants with his fingers, but a butterfly gets near him and he cries for his daddy to hold him! HAHA! The walk through the aquarium was very peaceful.. It was less than an hour until closing, so there was hardly anyone in there. That was pretty cool.
