Cole loves the water. He goes down the slide (even backwards) and jumps off the side.It's pretty exhausting for the person in the water (this day it was my dad) because you have to constantly watch him. He gives a little warning before he jumps. He tries to say "1, 2, 3" before flying in, even though he's hard to understand. It doesn't bother him to go under or get water in his face. He LOVES it!
