I did promise. On Thursday, we would go swimming.
Nope, I forgot to add 'but NOT when it is raining.'
And then it was Thursday. And we MUST go swimming. Even if it is raining!
First, as arranged, I picked up the girls from kindergarten; and then picked up F, MC's friend, from another kindergarten. It was a bit windy, and it looked like it would rain. But I did promise the kids we would go swimming this day. 'Even if it would rain,' MC stressed.
This time, I'm drove although it was only a couple of minutes drive. The parking area was not really full. There were only three cars, including ours! Should we go home? Of course not, we'd go swimming even if it pours!
Paid the fee. Found a nice spot to spread our blanket, under a big tree with thick branches, of course. And yes, there's enough space to spread our blanket, remember the parking area?
Changed into our bathing suits. Prepared lunch. Then, raindrops! 'Mama, good thing we are still eating,' IC said. Huh, okay.
Then off to the swimming pool. Nope, no swimming in the sea today, it would rain, remember?
IC would only sit and eat sliced apples in the corner, while MC played with her toys on the pool steps. F and I enjoyed the water. And then it rained, and it rained! Whew, I would be wet if am not already in the water.
And my brave girls who wanted to go swimming even it it would rain? IC continued eating though she did used her towel as a cape to ward of not being too wet (which wasnt really successful); and MC wont jump in the water because she said she would freeze so she stubbornly continued with her foot paddles. And F and I? Oh, it is warmer in the pool, but my girls wont believe me. They got wetter and wetter...
Until I told them, enough of this nonsense. Let's go home.
But first, they wanted to eat ice cream. Yes, even if it's raining.
What I would do to make my girls happy! Well, it was fun, really! Next time I wont forget to bring an umbrella, though :)
