Little life jackets - Day 279

 Back when Ben was only one, we went to the lake with my brother and his family. They had this life jacket thing around their son and it looked like it helped him swim so we borrowed it for a little while to try out on Ben and it was fabulous! We went out and bout one right then. He has used it every summer and it has been a blessing. I don't have to watch him like a hawk and he can be a little more independent. We have two so Tayrien got one this year. Last night we tried them out at papa mark and Grandma Dee's pool. The water was way to cold to enjoy anything, but we threw the boys in for at least one dunk so they can get used to the water. Tayrien needs to learn to use his legs, but Ben did great again! We got our at Walmart for around $13.

Cute matching boys

We love to splash

Reaching for the ball, he almost fell in

 It is kind of small, but Tayrien is falling between the edge of the pool and the raft

Love those lips and baby blues

How fun!! We went Friday night to go swimming since the boy starts swimming lessons on Saturday and wanted to get their initial fear over with. It's good we did since Nathan was pretty fearful, but relaxed a bit. We LOVE those lifejackets too!! Love that last picture of Tayrien!! So sweet.
