Day 3 was the day we have been talking about for 3 months. One day, about 3 months ago, we told Kensington that we were going to the beach for vacation. She immediately said “I get to swim with the dolphins”. Andrew and I were like “uh, no”. Where did she get that idea? Beach equals you get to swim with the dolphins?? However, for 4 days after that conversation, she talked non-stop about how she got to swim with the dolphins. So, her sweet daddy called around on Bermuda and found a place for them to swim with the dolphins. She was so excited…we were so nervous. She’s not even three…my mom and I just knew the hissy fit would start when they put the life jacket on and then continue until her 20 minutes were up. Because swimmin’ with the dolphins ain’t cheap, we were going to make her stay in the water the entire 20 minutes regardless of the fit. So, here we go…
We showed up a little early so that K could watch the dolphins swim and get acquainted with the situation. She looks ready…
Me and my mama making bets on how this would go down.
Smith was super excited not to be swimming with the dolphins.
Well…they put the life jacket and little booties on her feet without a fight. She was determined and ready to swim with the 6 dolphins. This is her and her daddy waiting their turn.
Getting in the water. She was by far the youngest in her group. By far.
And she LOVED it! She LOVED it! We were blown away! She did such a great job!!
This chick might have a future as a marine biologist. She totally dug the dolphins! When it was over, we let her pick out any toy in the gift shop. Of course, she picked the biggest stuffed dolphin they had.
We finished the day with lots of shopping and then went out to dinner. Bermuda has great shopping and great food, so we were all happy campers.
Bermuda also has Shirley Temples on every single kids menu…so my kids became quite spoiled. Here they are sharing one.
Kensington Kate, you did so great swimming with the dolphins! Mommy and Daddy will never forget that experience. We love you!!
Stay tuned for more on Day 4!
