July 27: Fun in the Water

This morning Nana got out a slip n slide for the kids.  They had a lot of fun!  It was getting close to Isla's nap time, so I didn't want to mess with her swimsuit.  Once we got outside and saw the water, she was very insistent that she should get to play too!  So she got to play in her clothes, and she loved it.

The rest of the kids had a lot of fun taking turns splashing in the water at the bottom of the slide.

My sister's boyfriend's daughter Sage was with us this week.  She and Audrey have so much fun together, and they are just too cute.  They get along really well, and I loved watching them play together.

After lunch, we drove to the Quincy hospital to see my grandma.  She recently fell and broke her pelivs, and she has been having a difficult recovery.  We took all the kids (five under the age of three!) to the hopsital with us to help lift her spirits.  I'm not sure that taking five little kids to the hospital is really that great of an idea, but it went fairly well.  We did not stay long, but hopefully getting the chance to see all her great grandkids helped to cheer Grammy Lois up a little.
After the hospital visit, we drove to Dad and Chris's house for a pool party and cookout.  More water fun for the kids, and they were pretty happy about that!  Thankfully, the weather had cooled down some this week, and the high was in the upper 80s.  It was sunny and a gorgeous day for swimming!
Isla really had fun in the pool today.  I would put her on the side and count to three, and on three, she would fall into my arms and laugh and squeal.  Then she would want to do it again and again and again.
Audrey was excited to swim all by herself yet again!  Even though she is still reliant on the swim vest and floaties to keep her above the water, she is getting better at swimming while wearing them.  She was using her arms and kicking her feet to move forward in the water, and she was floating on her back too.  We really need to enroll her in swim lessons soon!
It was a busy day, but we all had a good time.  The night ended on a high note with the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics!   My family thinks I'm crazy for liking the Olympics so much, but I really do love everything about them!
