We went to the Splash Playground this morning. Lots of fun, once the kids got over their initial water-shyness. Here they are with Daddy...
They were looking at this contraption, which was a source of great fascination and terror for Matthew.
She can't resist trying to drink the chlorinated water. Mmm, tasty.
My dearest little loves
Mommy had such a wonderful time with you today, my Sweethearts!
Matthew, I love how you got braver and braver throughout the morning. After I sat down on the concrete and splashed with you for a while, you began to take courage and do more than just wander around and cry when water got in your eyes. By the end of our time, you were running through one of the shorter fountains and bounding into my arms for a big kiss and/or raspberry... over and over and over and over...
My Meg, I had such a fun time making handprints and footprints with you on the dry bits of concrete. I loved watching you zig and zag your way around the perimeter of the big fountain maze. You are still so unconscious of everyone else in the world when you are enjoying yourself--what a gift to be so uninhibited! I especially loved it when you came over and lay down on my lap as I sat with my legs stretched out in front of me. You just rested there, in the middle of all of the spraying water and shrieking children, with your head on my big tummy, and cuddled with Mommy.
Special moments in a fairly ordinary day... I don't want to forget them!
