THE NEXT MICHAEL PHELPS {minus the leaked bong photos}

This past weekend Daycen went to his very first birthday party, which happened to be a pool party! (score on making it a extremely memorable event.) I figured that he would be cautious of the pool, maybe a little frightened by it. Oh, boy was I wrong! The second he was beyond the gates, he scampered across the wet tiles to the kiddie pool. He seriously couldn't get in there fast enough! He splashed, ran through the water, and even face dived into it a couple times. He never cried, nor made any fuss. He was genuinely happy. Well, happy until it was time to get out. Yet, he didn't make too much of a scene, just reached for it & gave a little whine. (And multiple times during the meal/gift opening he'd run out the conference room doors towards the pool area.)

I'm pretty sure the blow up children's pool in the back yard isn't going to hold up to the real thing this year. I have a feeling this summer will be trips to the local splash pad and outdoor children sized pools. At least though, one of my children will find the small outdoor pool a blast since she just watched from the sidelines.

I'm not going to lie. What a splendid way to spend the day before a foot of snow dropped onto our little town. It sure helped cure a small portion of our spring fever, even though I'm still longing for brisk walks to the local ice cream parlor.
