One fish, two fish
We picked the first pool we could find on google and ended up on a dead end road in Birkenhead beside a slightly decrepit war memorial park (with a small museum open on Sundays from 2 - 3pm that I'm perfectly curious to check out). Anyway thank goodness the kiddie pool was inside, kind of cute and completely empty.
Let me tell you, this kid was a fan! She wasn't fazed by anything and before long we were kicking and splashing up a small tsunami. I'm not sure that I'll ever see anything cuter than that little butt in those frilly pink togs with a pair of chubby dimpled legs kicking around furiously. The only part she discovered was not so fun is getting out of the pool, being cold and wet, and then having to walk back to the car in the wind!
We were hoping that so much strenuous exercise might have knocked her out early for the night, but noooo. Nic and I were rubbing our eyes, struggling to stay awake during dinner whilst Ayana talked loudly at us and made her usual evening demands.
All in all it was a fantastic afternoon though and swimming will definitely be becoming a regular feature in our week!
