Ryan's First Swimming Lesson!

Well, yesterday Ryan had his very first swimming lesson. He loves the water, and was really excited to go yesterday. He was running around saying "I am going to swim like Nemo!" But once he and Michael hit the pool and Ryan figured out that he was going to have to kick his legs, use his arms, and put his fact in the water, he didn't love it quite as much as he did when he thought that going swimming meant having someone hold you and play with you the whole time. The look on his face for most of the time was something like "Wait, this isn't swimming! This is WORK!" But all in all, he still had fun and did a good job. Here are some pics from the outing:

Michael and Ryan sharing some pool smiles:


Ryan feeling a little unsure about this leg kicking thing...


Getting the hang of it...


Sort of having fun:


I just think this one is cute:


Really trying hard to get that duck:


Mmmmmm.....chlorine:


I'm sick of swimming, just hold me!


Does it look like Michael was having a little more fun than Ryan?

You do look skinnier, Michael. And yes, you also look like you're having more fun than Ryan. I can't wait to see you guys!
