CuriousGeorge reached a big milestone this weekend. In all his 5 1/2 years he has never, not even for one minute, trusted his lifejacket to help him float. Thankfully He finally does, and had a much better time floating through the middle than trudging along holding onto the sides. By the end of the day, he was even laying on his belly kicking his feet and paddling the length of the pool. Woohoo! He said, "Mommy, call the news people and tell them I can swim now!" Oh, and he found a new way to wear the float:
SpiderMonkey floated with KingKong nearby. And he had every last thing that would float in the pool. We'd scoop them out and he'd throw them right back in, screeching and giggling everytime. (Sorry the pics are dark):
The Twinkeys hung out at on the bar. Here you can see the yellow vinyl and clapboard walls. Retro! At the bottom of the bar you can see the beginning of the green faux grass carpet that covers every inch of the floor:
Did you see where the Disco ball is hung in SpiderMonkey's pic above? Just over the pool stairs, next to one of the tacky unique light fixtures:
It's a really fun place to hang out with family...as evidenced by the cannonball splash provided by MonkeyButt and MonkeyUumpa. Thanks for the shower guys!
Now, I am teasing about the Brady Bunch-ness of the pool area. I absolutely love it all. The green flooring beats the heck outta kids running on slippery tile any day! I even like the light fixtures and the disco ball rocks!!
We got fast food for dinner on the way home and got back just before 10:00pm after hitting Walmart for some lunch supplies for the week. We were all tuckered out and happy to be home.
The laundry is done, just in time to pack the bigs up for an overnight in Montreal with MonkeyNana and MonkeyPapa to see MonkeyAunt and MonkeyUncle who have and drive a Monster Truck and have a show out there Saturday. Should be fun! The earmuffs are packed!
