Swimming and Snuggling and Saturday Rides

My work recently launched a corporate partnership with Lifetime Fitness.  They subsidize a portion of the membership fees if you go at least 10 times per month.  The subsidy can also be used for a spouse and children.  We are all signed up for a very reasonable out of pocket expense.  We can also get up to $40 more credited from insurance if we each go 12 times per month.  The club closest to home only has a lap pool, but we can take the kids to the leisure pool in Plymouth or Maple Grove.  We have already been twice and I hope to take them at least twice a month.  They also have an outdoor pool that will open this summer.
 I forgot our water camera the first time we went, so I only took the picture above.  Parker surprised both of us by going down the waterslide.  He's gone up a few stairs at other places, but never taken the plunge.  Now it's one of his favorite things.

 I quickly learned that I would need to go with him up the slide to make sure he waited to get the ok.
We never really got Esme a birthday present.  We have very generous friends and family, so we often wait until after holidays or birthdays to get them things. She's had a Paw Patrol Skye TY plush for quite a while and got Marshall one for Easter.  She's been obsessed with both of them since then, so we completed the set by getting Everest, Zuma, Rubble, Chase, and Rocky.
Jimmy unboxed them earlier in the afternoon, then we let Esme open them later.  She was so excited!
 She always knows if one is missing and likes to carry them around the house.
 We kicked off Twister ride season this weekend as well.  It was still a bit chilly, but summer is coming!
