Tuesday Night Fun

After an early dinner tonight we slipped into swim suits, packed up the bike trailer, and pedaled over to the community splash pad at Andrews Park for the first time.  We love playing outside in the evenings and the recent triple digits have just made things unberable.  The sidewalk is even too hot to play on with chalk (although Cora did have some fun drawing chalk on some tile samples the other night).

Being a weeknight, it wasn't too crowded with big kids but there were some other littles there for Cora to interact with.  One thing that I adore about Cora these days is that she doesn't seem to have any shyness about her yet.  She smiles and waves and flirts with everyone and she is fascinated by other kids.  She thinks everyone is her friend and I love this age of innocence; no judgements, no awkward social moments, just fun for now.  Sigh. 

She loved the water and we loved watching her explore.  Her courage for checking out new things is admirable.  We did leave with a slightly skinned big toe, but it didn't seem to bother her.  The evening was filled with giggles and smiles for both Cora and us.  Now she is off in dreamland snuggled up to her sock monkey.  Double Sigh. 



  1. What fun!

  2. From Great MoMo: Oh how wonderful it is for you to keep us so up to date on our little darling's progress.

    From PawPaw Elmo: I never cease to be amazed at the power of our technology of today. I love the way you are keeping us in the loop and allowing us to watch Cora's development.

  3. She looks like she is having so much fun. Wish I was there to kiss her skinned toe. Give her a kiss and a hug.
    Love to all of you.
