Today was a busy day. It started off in a bit of a frenzy for getting out the door on time. Last minute we had organized a “munchkin round up” for all of the young families and their children that we know. Many of us know each other through church, or at least have seen photos of each others families on facebook.
I really wish I had taken my camera out of my diaper bag to get photos of the get together. The only photo I got was of Everly chilling on my blanket. Just means we’ll have to do another get together soon! It was so nice to see everyone, in total there were 13 children in ages ranging 3 years old to 3 weeks old. Everly also got to meet a very sweet little girl, who is only a few days younger than she is. Next time we’ll have to get a photo of those two together for sure.
The park we went to is the one our church normally does the Sunday school picnic at. It has washrooms, a big playground, and a water park. The water park was a huge hit with the older children, especially with it being warm and a bit muggy this morning. In my frazzled rush to get out the door this morning, I forgot to grab the sunscreen for both Everly and myself. Sadly, my little girl got her first sun burn today. Mommy fail. Needless to say, the sunscreen has found a now permanent spot in the diaper bag. I’ll probably buy a second to keep in the emergency baby supply kit in the car too. Ended up leaving a little earlier than I wanted to because goober was getting grouchy.
Everly was in a stubborn mood already, and did not get a nap in while at the park. She thankfully napped a little on the way home. She refused to continue her nap once we were home. Of course she did crash when we were only a few minutes away from the location of our next event of the day.
We also went to a bbq this afternoon to celebrate those who have graduated this year from high school and post secondary studies. got to go and play in a pool for the second time ever. We had bought her a life jacket, as we know this summer will be full of water activities, this was the first time we had the chance to try it out on her. She was not happy about floating on her back so we quickly switched her into a pool floaty. Its supposed to be good for infants as young as 6 months, but we think she just barely fits it, and Everly is tall for her age. Everly did enjoy being in the water though, definitely makes us think the future swimming lessons will be worth it this summer.
We had to leave early from this too, yet again our munchkin who did not want to nap was crashing for the day. She is happily in bed sound asleep as I type this. So much to be thankful for today. Nice weather, friends, children, and much much more.
