And this morning we made a trip to our favorite splash park. Last year we only made it once because you needed reservations and we only got one slot, all the rest we reserved the entire summer. I hopped online and booked us for two weeks in a row. They are booking by a few weeks instead of the whole summer. I think that allows people not to take advantage of the system and allow more people to get to go, plus they are looking at restrictions and how things are being lifted in the community. There were about 12 kids there, about as many adults and we were able to go for about 50 minutes. After your time is up they wipe down things to prepare for the next round of kids. We had the first time slot when we went it wasn't so hot and humid. Plus in super exciting news Little Buddy walked up the five steps on the little water slide all by himself, got his body lowered and positioned to slide both on his bum and his belly and went down! It is the first year I have not had to help him up, then try to climb down the stairs with little ones on it waiting their turn, and run to the bottom of the slide to retrieve him. This year I just stood at the bottom of the slide, scooped him up and got him into standing and he walked to the stairs by holding onto the side of the boat, the slide is a shipwreck, and waited patiently until there was a place for him to go up, and did it over and over again. A huge feat for my boy!
We had a wonderful weekend, well minus a big huge tantrum last night but we are working on those. Now I think I deserve some time to knit, don't you?
For those of you interested there is a video memorial to Teresa Kasner on YouTube. Hopefully you can find it right here at Teresa Kasner Memorial. Thank you for letting me know it was on YouTube, Tammy. You will be missed my friend.
Have a wonderful week my friends, stay safe.
