Jack and I descended on my parents abode for the holiday week. I had three goals:
1) Pick up baby things I had stored at their house
2) Do more work training
3) Put Jack in the pool
Happily, I accomplished all three! Amanda was able to come down too. Ben had a quiet week back in Arvada while we brought the non-stop questions and playing to Grand Junction. I think we swam every morning and evening, about 3 hours a day at least. It was great fun.
As usual, more pictures and video are on my flickr photostream.
Pre-trip, dancing with stars at Story Time.
On the evening we arrived Jack was ready to swim. He was so zonked by the end of the day, I found him in this position at bedtime and he hadn't moved by morning.
Periscopes and Parachutes
We found that the best flotation tool was a noodle. He could stay afloat and move around better than with the vest or the water wings.
The slide was a big hit.
He didn't expect to go underwater again. But he was really brave about it every time!
On the Fourth, we went with pool glowing toys instead of fireworks.
The fire pit had a little gas leak or we would have made s'mores on it.
Sad to leave on Friday, but excited to see Dad in Arvada.
