We went to the water park with Ama, Grandpa Ada, and Natie. We met Titi, her mom and dad, and Abuela. We had a great weekend away swimming, watching basketball, and playing outside. The cabin we rented had a big sandpit behind it, and the kids loved digging and building castles in it.
E was a scared of the water park, particularly the kids area. There was a big basket that filled with water and then dumped out, and she didn’t want to go near it. The whole time we were there, she kept saying “too loud, its scary.” However, ever since we’ve been back, she’s told everyone about that basket. E spent the whole time swimming in the regular pool and playing water basketball. She was willing to take small breaks for the hot tub.
I kept trying to make E go into the kiddie pool, or the wave pool, or use any of fun water park things. She didn't think too much of that!
This was the most successful time we’ve ever stayed away from home with E. The first night she woke up around midnight, but night number two she slept straight through!
E also got to play her first game of baseball with Grandpa Ada.
Since the weather has been nice, we’ve been eating dinner outside. E thinks this is absolutely wonderful. Now, she asks to eat outside every night. Mostly we say yes, since its much less cleanup then eating indoors!
