The Weekend {tad bit late}

I'm ipretty late with this post, but wanted to update on the swimming party Spencer went to Saturday.  Well, Spencer has been talking about this party for a solid week and thought he would just jump right in when he got there.  The pool is 1ft deep the entire pool with a few slides, stairs, water squirters, etc.  Well, there's also this GIANT "bucket" that fills up with water and dumps down all over the place and we found out first hand that is not good for our little sweet pea. 

See the scary bucket at the top? ;)

He wanted to leave immediately it scared him so much.  We thought he would see all of the kids from school (especially Emmy) and want to jump right in, but not so much.  So, about 30 minutes pass and he decides he wants to go on the stairs only if Daddy goes with him.  Sounds easy enough, right?  Well, Daddy had jeans on.  Guess what Daddy did?  You got it!  Jumped right in there with him and took him up the stairs.  I'm pretty sure 99.999% of dads/moms wouldn't have done that.  It really almost brought tears to my eyes because he didn't think twice and went for it.  Then we were just sitting on the edge and I had my feet in the water and Spencer thought it would be fun to TIDAL WAVE splash me, so needless to say, we were the VERY wet parents at the party.  Rick ran home to change and came back in time for pizza and presents.  Needless to say it was a great time and Spencer ended up having fun which was the most important thing...not our wet clothes.

He had fun...he really did!

We had great weather Sunday and Spencer loves playing in the back.  His latest thing is running.  That's all he wants to do in the backyard (as well as kicking the balls).  He has started being very curious about our large tree in the backyard and I'm pretty sure it'll be no time before he's climbing it like a monkey. 

Where has our little baby gone?  What a big boy!
