Water Babies!

Yesterday afternoon we met some friends (Ingrid, Michael, and their sweet baby, Heidi) at Slide Hill Park for a picnic and then swimming at Manor Pool. We all had lots of fun chatting and playing in the water. Heidi had never been swimming before and Eddie was quick to show her how small kids do it: climbing in/out/in/out/in/out/in/out the pool at the shallow end, playing on the sprinklers, sucking on pool toys, climbing on Dada, and being swished around in the deep end while clinging to Mama.

Our picnic included various sliced cheeses, two types of salami, pesto, crackers, bread, and fruit salad. For dessert (which we ate after swimming) was a rhubarb apricot crisp...not as sweet as strawberry rhubarb pie but pretty dang good.

By the time we started walking towards home (about 4pm) it was really hot (96F) and we were ALL ready for a nap. Too bad we only had one stroller so Eddie got to sleep...I seriously considered making Dave pull me home in the wagon we brought to haul the cooler and pool stuff, but I'm pretty sure my weight would have broken the wheels AND someone had to push the stroller anyway.

It was a great Sunday...really, a great weekend over all. We hung out with different friends three days in a row and ate yummy food each time. You can't ask for much more!
