We tried out the YMCA in Great Bridge / Hickory and oh my goodness- we fell in LOVE! First of all, I worked with the aquatics director, Lisa Dionne, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and all of the staff there. She was absolutely the sweetest person! She allowed our mommy group to visit and check out their awesome pool and made us feel right at home.
Secondly, we had an awesome mommy meetup. Maggie and I had a bunch of fun moms and kids come hang out with us and we had so much fun!
Thirdly, I learned that Maggie has a passion for water. Wow, can that kid do some swimming. She’s a little fish, that one…..and mommy is a nervous wreck because she just jumps all the way in. She was even floating on her own! Basically all I heard her say to me today was, “Let go mommy, let me go!” My baby is growing up!
This YMCA is wonderful! We only used their outdoor pool facility, however I looked around inside and they have so much to offer! They have three different age-leveled kids rooms where you can drop your kids off for up to two hours and then go work out. They also have an amazing indoor pool. And they offer aerobic classes and much more!
The outdoor pool is what we were really impressed with. It was huge! This picture only shows the shallow end and kids play area. There was even more on the other side…
We had so much fun and cannot thank YMCA enough for our wonderful day!
