Our Guinness Book of World Record

Wednesday night at 9:50 pm before I was about to go to bed I checked my email one last time and decided to take a look at a couponing blog that I follow.  On the blog they had posted about "The Worlds Largest Swimming Lesson Attempt" that would take place in the morning at 7:00 am at Big Surf here in Phoenix.  It actually took place all over the world and Big Surf was just participating in it.  So I called up Kyle and Stacey (Mason already had plans) and we all decided that we would get up at 5:45 am to make it there by 7:00 am to get in free for the whole day.  I haven't gotten up that early in a LONG time.  But it was well worth it and we had tons of fun!!

Here is what Big Surf had to say (on Facebook) after the event:  
We'd like to offer a huge thank you to the 480 swimmers that participated in today's The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson at Big Surf AZ. What an awesome turnout! We know that the World Waterpark Association is tallying the results of all of the host sites to see if, indeed, a Guinness World Records was set and we'll be sure to let you know, when we know!

I just looked it up and it said that we did pass the previous record.  So Boone and I were a part of a world record for participating in the world's largest swimming lesson!!  That's awesome!!  The lesson took place from 8:00 to 8:30 and then we got to hang out in the park for the rest of the day.  

The babies loved the 'baby area' - no surprise there.  We spent most of our time there.  We did go down a couple kiddie slides and hung out in the wave pool too.  Boonie had a blast and LOVES swimming now.  

Here they are at the kiddie pool:

For every one ride down the slide Darci made Boone probably lapped her 3 times.  He doesn't have proper slide etiquette yet.

Sliding is very serious business.

These are the larger kiddie slides.  Boone went down them 3 times.
