Family Day at Coney Island

Today was the perfect family Coney Day.  The twins and I headed over early for swim lessons while John helped his brother at the new house for just a bit.  I'll start off by saying the twins were not excited at first about their swim lessons.  I mentioned it last night and John started crying hysterically which then caused Macy to start moaning also.  In hindsight, we were all tired and it may not have been the most ideal time to mention it started the next day.  But when John came down this morning he came and grabbed my leg and said, "Momma, I am excited about swim lessons after all.  I was just nervous and sleepy last night." And yes, he said those words exactly.  He really gets it when he's tired.

So we packed up the car and made our way to Coney Island.  We arrived just in time for lessons and they grabbed their towel and headed over without any coaxing from me.  It was like riding a bike.  They remembered exactly what to do and just like routine habit they did it.  The first day for them in swim lessons is always a bit of a get to know you/Can you swim at all? kind of day.  Their teachers learned quickly they are not afraid of the water and if they let them they would have gone to the deep end alone.  So they have begun and will continue through the entire month of June.

John arrived just after we ate lunch and spent the rest of the afternoon playing with the twins in the pool.  They went down the slide, played ball, jumped off the "island", and got ice cream treats.  Their dad is way cooler than I will ever be!  They loved every second.  Once we finished up at the pool we rode several rides before returning home to rest for the afternoon.  They are wiped out but it was well worth it for our family day full of memories at Coney Island.
