Three Busy Bees | Swimming {Disney Dream}

We are from the South. That means that I won’t swim unless it is above 80 degrees. How is it that kids can swim when it is super cold outside and as adults we are freezing before removing our bathing suit covers? I remember as a kid we would get in our swimming pool when it was less than optimal weather and never complained. I also never understood why my mom would freak out on us. Now I get it. Oh that circle of life-parenthood thing. The Bahamas average upper 70′s in January but of course Mother Nature knew we were going somewhere cool. This is the second time we have been there and the weather drop to the upper 50′s, lower 60′s. NOT A FAN! With that said, I did not even touch my bathing suit. Little KB stayed in her shorts and hoodie. Rea and Connor loved it but froze their tushies off when they were out of the water. Marty even went on the AquaDuck with Connor. An AquaDuck? It is a “water coaster” that even goes out over the edge of the ship. Poor Rea couldn’t go on it because of height restrictions and Connor had to have an adult with him. Let’s just say I watched from the sidelines with two little girls who were not happy that their dad and brother were having fun without them.
Since I had to miss out on the slide, Marty and I did plan a date night to ride the AquaDuck together but then the weather got even colder and I said “Um, NO!” Someone will have to stay well to take care of the sick kids from the cold water…ACK. I sound like my mom.

Connor and Rea enjoyed the quick moving line and each other’s company at Mickey’s Pool Slide. I loved standing at the end of the slide and watching their faces as they flew down with big ole smiles. Priceless. Now go dry off and lets warm up. The best part of the pool area was the jumbo screen. I found myself watching Disney movies from the comfy lounge chairs…while eating ice cream, and french fries, and pizza, and more ice cream, and…well you get it. Hey! It’s vacation.

If you are wondering where all the kids are, they are on Castaway Island. We took advantage after breakfast and let the kids enjoy an “empty” pool, AquaDuck, and slide. If you are scratching your head and saying that there are quite a few kids in the pool areas, well you are right. But this is “empty” compared to all the kids that are swarming the area when we are sailing.
