We live near the sea and our summers are spent at the beach. I have such happy memories of sandcastles and swimming as a child and I am hoping my four remember the same. I think that living so close to the sea it is really important that my children learn how to be safe in the water as well as how to be confident in it and I love taking them swimming.
It isn't easy and we aren't usually allowed to all go in together due to the ratios. Dylan now has lessons on his own and every week I take the smallest two swimming at a small local pool that we hire with friends and I love watching my water babies play.
I may not be teaching them much swimming just yet but they love being in the water and it really tires them out! So much so in fact that between my leaving Finn on a float (supervised of course) to go and get my camera and getting back he managed to fall asleep - the ultimate water bed!!
Sunuva sent us some swim shorts for all three boys, but as it isn't quite warm enough for beach swimming anymore (much to Dylan's dismay), I couldn't get photos of all three. The shorts are lovely and I picked this design as it was bright enough to be able to spot them easily and the zebras look fun. The swim shorts have UPF 50+ protection which makes them perfect for the hotter days and the waist is adjustable which is an essential for us. They easily fit Finn's Huggies swim nappy underneath which is what you can see poking out the top.
And one more picture because he is usually awake when we go swimming!
These are great quality shorts, easy to machine wash and fast drying. Hopefully they all still fit next summer as they will look brilliant together and having them so bright and matching makes head counts a lot easier! If you are feeling organised then check out the Sunuva website as they have lots in the sale now (including these ones) so you can buy ahead for next year!
