Live Mermaids in our Pool {and GIVEAWAY!}

Now that it is summertime, I am trying my hardest to keep my kids entertained while not having them waste time playing video games or watching TV.

Rylan, CGH#4, is my one child that has dreamt of being a princess or mermaid since she could barely talk. She had been begging so long for a mermaid swimming tail for her birthday, which was in March.

We searched around the internet and found an adorable family-run website who makes and sells them, Fin Fun Mermaid. {The other girls have since been playing with the fin so much that we had to get them each one of their own!}Fin Fun Mermaid TailsWe posted a single photo on Instagram a few weeks ago of Brooklyn in her mermaid tail, and our viewers loved it so much… that we decided to film this bonus video for you all!

Who knows, this may finally be my opportunity to do an Ariel-inspired hairstyle from Disney’s “The Little Mermaid“!

These are the most realistic commercial mermaid suits I’ve ever seen, and I’ve seen lots of “Little Mermaid” plays and even beautiful siren/mermaids in swim tanks in Las Vegas!Mermaids Swimming

MermaidOK, so they look awesome, and include tankini or bikini tops, but I was very surprised at how fast my girls picked up swimming in them, using the dolphin kick. I particularly love how it gave the girls a core and leg workout without them even knowing it!

Kamri definitely picked up swimming as a mermaid fast! {If you couldn’t already tell in the video!}

I love how Brooklyn and Bailey wanted to relax and “bask” in the sun, reading their books! I… just… couldn’t… hold… back! SQUIRT! Once they were wet, the twins joined right in on the fun!Mermaids

Diving MermaidsSweet Pea and Daxton are still not totally comfortable swimmers, so we settled with a “buoying” shark fin for Dax and an adorable mermaid suit only for Sweet Pea {without the tail fins, as seen in the first photo}. Can you tell that they were having a blast that day?
