We took Elliot to the pool for the first time this weekend! We went to the East Portland Community Center where there is a huge, new indoor waterpark with a lap pool, children's area, vortex current, whirlpool, and a seriously big, fast, water-park-style slide. While Andrea, Annika and I jumped in and enjoyed everything the pool had to offer, Elliot was a little less sure he liked the idea.It took a while. But after plenty of clinging to our necks and lots of gentle encouragement, he did relax his grip a bit and begin to enjoy the water.
He especially liked it when we moved from the 3' part of the pool to the part marked 0'0".
All in all, this little fish splished and splashed for over an hour! A which point he communicated as clearly as possible that he was completely done being in the pool. He then nursed voraciously on the sidelines and fell fast asleep. It was a very fun afternoon!
