After two days of play at the beach and the bay, we went to play in more waterwhich is the newest addition to a park we loveand we have yet to remember our bathing suits until today.
They splashed aroundand we found there is plenty to entertain all three of these little ones.Although it helps Olivine to be brave around so many big kidsbecause her brothers will cheer her onor catch her on the slide.
After we changed out of wet clothes
they explored the playground.
They love the dragon slideand wait patiently for their turn at the top of the hill
and the bridges
for a change of paceand scenerywith friendsand waves.
There were sand crabs
and a lunch breakwith a close eye on the one who couldn’t play in the waves.
She only fell down once as she learns how to stand in the moving water and sand.
We can’t wait to hang out with our friends again soonand I did notice Henry has red marks from his dive off his boogie boardbut he’s a tough cookie who has hair that is lighter and skin that is darker.
We love summer beach days.
Last night we got dressed up and two very good friends (who we owe a favor to) watched our three little ones so that we could attend a wedding.
The bride is Linda
she and the other ladies are all fellow teachers who I met in the master’s program at CSULB
all amazing and bright and hardworking.
The favors were mints in these glasses and I loved the fruit mixed into the center piecesplus a photo booth!A definite fun night out.
The bay threw off our sleep patterns. Olivine and Paul fell asleep without dinner, leaving a little time for Henry to eat, have stories, and go to bed on time.
Of course the other two woke up much later, had a late dinner, and quietly drew with markers and read books.Olivine was exploring the colors and practicing taking the caps on and off.Then she decided to smell them.
I am so intrigued with what goes on in the minds of little ones.One more bonus to summer: Timeto sit, and watch one child for an extended period of time with nothing else on my mind. Staying up late for no reason in particular.
