We introduced our son Mylo to a swimming pool for the first time during our recent family vacation to Las Vegas. With the help of Swimways’ Baby Spring Float that we purchased from BabiesRus before leaving, the little guy totally dug it!
Because the dry dessert sun has a reputation for turning up the heat in Vegas, pool temperatures start off real cool and by the end of the day are about as warm as a bathtub. Mylo didn’t appreciate being submerged in the cool water the first day but on our second day he began to get the hang of it and proceeded to float and splash around as happy as can be.
It was a different experience for me – being in a Las Vegas pool with my husband AND my baby, a place where pools are notorious for skimpy swimwear and hard partying – both of which I have rocked and partook in in the past. And the pool where we stayed – at the relatively new Planet Hollywood Towers Westgate – was no different.
Luckily Mylo is too young to understand why a group of 20-somethings were doing cannon balls while holding on to their buckets of beer for dear life. Hey I’m 33 and I’m not sure I understand it. Wait, yeah I do. It’s Vegas.
