Tyler and I recently purchased annual passes to the local water park, and since every day in Hawaii is sunny and 80 we decided today was as good of a day as any to pack it all up and head to the waterpark... and I'm so glad that we did!
First off...for the peace of mind of all the grandmothers and great-grandmothers, since these were the first questions out of my mom's mouth. She wore plenty of sunscreen, which we re-applied religiously and we made sure that she had a life jacket on in any water that was over her head :) I know how all her mothers are, greats and grands alike. What a well taken care of girl she is!
That baby had a BALL! You could hear her cackling all around the children's area any time Tyler or I would take her down a slide...she would throw those hands up in the air and just laugh and shriek until her little belly jiggled. I had no idea how much she would love being in the water! I should have known though, her daddy was a life guard for so many years and is such a fish. He's even started teaching her how to swim and I was astounded to see that she already instinctively knows how to paddle her arms and legs and even puts her face in the water and blows bubbles! I think I'll be a swim meet mom instead of a soccer mom after all!
