We spent most of our time in the kiddie pool where Ainsley & Addison could practice their swimming & slide down the slides. There was a life guard on duty at the top of all the slides & each time Ains would reach the top she would wait for permission from the life guard to go. It was hilarious, especially if the life guard on duty wasn't paying attention. She would "patiently" sit there until the life guard noticed her & gave her the okay to head on down the slide. Sometimes there were 4 or 5 kids behind her confused as to why she wasn't going yet. She still waited for permission though. Those of you who know my sweet daughter know there is nothing "patient" about her (an unfortunate trait she inherited from me). I was really proud of her. She never lost her cool or layed into screaming at any of the life guards or kids (whew!!!). It was really cute actually. Each time she would sit down Braydan & I would look at each other & smile because she was being such a good girl.Alivia had fun in the kiddie pool too. She is really the best baby ever. All the fun wore her right out though & she ended up sleeping about half the time. What a sweetheart!!
FUN IN THE SUN
I'm sure the kids aren't going to let us get away with just one visit next year which will be just fine with us.
Yesterday we went to Seven Peaks as a family. My Mom, also known around our house as Grandma Mick was able to come by for a couple of hours too. Braydan & I haven't been there since our senior trip in high school & Mom said she hasn't been since I was in middle school. Needless to say, it has changed somewhat since then. The girls were sooo excited & had lots of fun most of the time. There were a few moments that were filled with "kicking, screaming fits" but most of those were over what tube they wanted. (Next time we are getting two of the same kind for sure!!!)
Once we figured out how to deal with the tube issue, things were great. Both big girls loved, loved, loved the Tube Run. Dad was the favored parent to go with, so Brayd got to go down at least 10 times between the two of them. I don't think he minded at all.
