Nolan has always enjoyed the water and swimming. He seems frustrated that he can't swim on his own but still enjoys the water regardless.
Last year he swam out to the dock with Dad and a flotation device. He jumped off it one day but the other days he wasn't all that interested. This year it was a challenge to get him to come back to shore most days. He asked everyone to swim out with him. He LOVED jumping off the dock.
It was a lot of fun cheering for him and Gaga seemed very impressed by his courage and enthusiasm. Nolan loved it. Check out his expression in the picture below.
