Andrew even braved the fountain in the middle of the kiddie pool!!!
Sometimes Andrew's ball would land IN the fountain, all though he braved it, he still wasn't quite sure of it, it was REALLY cold though.
Can you tell Ben LOVED the ball?!? Unfortunately the next day while we were playing he was bouncing around in the pool and even though it's only 2' deep, he lost his footing and went under. I tried to be really calm and just walked to him and lifted him up. Then we cheered him on about putting his head in the water. He didn't buy it, he's still a little unsure of getting in the pool, even our little kiddie pool. Let's hope next summer is better.
Grandma would hold him while we were in the big pool, but you can still see he's a little unsure, but he doesn't like to wear arm floats. He kept sticking his fingers in his mouth. The water was a little salty and I guess he liked the flavor because he kept liking his fingers, the ball of he even grabbed my hand a few times and tried to eat my fingers. I guess the kid has been deprived of sodium.
Andrew LOVED floating around with grandpa in his fish floater. Once we convinced him that the WHOLE pool was only 4.5' he willingly floated from one end to the other.
There was enough soda or salt (I don't know which it was) in the pool that Andrew came out with white on his face from having water fights with grandpa. Ben was just happy to be OUT of the pool.
After spending the day at the pool, we headed back to the train station to wait for the train. The boys needed a little help with the waiting part, so grandma sang songs with them...a favorite was "Johnny hammers with One Hammer"
Andrew thought the train was REALLY loud and Ben couldn't take his eyes off of it, so, this is the best picture we could get.
