Back to the Pool

We took advantage of the cool, wet weather to ramble around the house for much of the day. The Girl and The Boy play quite well together first thing when they are both fresh with the day and have had a full night's sleep. Both kids took naps.

After The Boy woke up from his, I left The Girl, sleeping, with Mr. C. and took The Boy back to the water playground at Portage Park. We got there just as the shift change ended and owing to the cool 83-degree temperature, the place was practically deserted. I had great fun spending an hour's worth of one-on-one time with The Boy. He went down the slide several times, and decided to attempt the crawling tube as long as I was waiting on the other side. I also pushed him and another little girl on the "tire" swing. After about 45 minutes, his lips were blue and he was starting to shiver, so it wasn't too hard to convince him that it was time to go home and have dinner. We chatted about the sounds that the cars in the movie Cars make all the way home.
