Year Round Swimming

So, our girls are little fishies. They both LOVE to swim. Emerson was born thinking she could swim. She goes underwater like it’s nothing and doesn’t hardly ever cry. She just assumes one of us will come rescue her if she can’t get back up. Keeps us on our toes for sure!! Ellie started swim lessons this summer. We need to do another round or two before she can swim on her own, but she’s very comfortable in the water as well.

So, we were really happy to learn that the Frisco Athletic Center existed and has very reasonable prices for residents. It’s a nice big gym with racquetball courts and everything. My favorite feature, though, is the huge indoor pool area. There’s a toddler playscape, a warm water pool, a large lap pool, a lazy river area with a whirlpool, and a large body slide – ALL INSIDE! There’s even more outside, but we signed up after Labor Day and haven’t gotten to experience that yet.

We’ve started a Saturday family tradition of us dropping the girls off in the complementary and very nice child care center while we work out. Then we go get them and we all get in our suits and do some swimming before coming back for lunch and naptime. The gym is only 5 minutes from our house, so we’re very blessed. Here are some photos from this past Saturday.

That’s the lazy river and whirlpool area

This is the warm water pool. It’s just shy of being a hot tub, and I love it. :)
