saturday we had the first pool party of the season. i got a brand new swimsuit for the occasion! ok, so it was a walmart special, “instantly slimming” matronly sarong suit. instantly slimming my fanny! i think the suit’s strategy was to distract viewers from the hips and thighs by providing extra cleavage.
as it turned out, i was so busy frantically chasing the squirm around the pool to make sure he didn’t fall into to the deep water that i was able to completely forget i was wearing a swimsuit at all!
since i needed both hands, there was a large body of water and small children, and i was wearing a swim suit, no photographs were taken of the event.
sunday morning we decided to try to beat the heat and make an early morning run to the head start playground. i love taking the kids there since the play equipment is age-appropriate, there is shade, and it is fenced. plus the squirm knows it well and is comfortable there.
the play house was a huge hit with both kids, making me wish we had one for our yard.
the squirt really enjoyed himself as well, and he even did a couple of passes behind a walker!! woohoo!! i think the shredded tire surface slows down the wheels a little, plus provides a safe landing for wipeouts. it was so exciting to see him walking!! even if it was only a few steps. i was so surprised i didn’t even get a photo.
something about the pool party made me realize that i haven’t been getting out enough. it was surprisingly elevating to my spirits just to have a few hours of new scenery. hopefully the summer will hold lots of out-of -home adventures!
