One of the reasons we chose our wonderful adoption agency, Holt, Int, was because it offers various activities for families before, during, and after your adoption is long over. This weekend was the annual Holt picnic in our town. It was held at a nice local park. We took lunch, played in the park, and got to meet so many wonderful families. It was a lot of fun to meet families I had met online through our agency forum. There was a great turn out, despite the extrememly hot weather.
Grayson was so sad after lunch because he could see the pool from the playground. And that was his focus. How much longer do I have to sweat before I get to go to the pool?
Once in the swing, Neylan was happy. (I was so bummer when I looked at my pics from the day. There is a nice smudge on my lens in all of my pics)
Seriously Mom. It's 227 degrees out here and there is a pool just a few feet away!
The whole gang!
All the kids
Now on to the fun part- for Grayson anyways. Neylan did a great job too. He loved the little fountains, as long as he was in charge. He did NOT like it when a little girl came up and threw water in his face.
We don't typically get to actually go to a pool like this, so this mama still has a few things to learn when we do. Like, take water toys. Many of the other kids had toys, so Grayson, being the social butterfly that he is, was not shy to go up to the other kids and ask to play with some of their toys. We stayed in the water for about 2 hrs and swam right through nap time today. Really, the water was the only place to be today in this steamy weather.
